This was recommended, but I didn’t love it. It’s a “cookbook” of sorts – each chapter is a short “hack” to try to keep your attention span on track. There’s nothing new here. You’ve probably seen all these before.

The author does try to fit everything into a four point framework.

  1. Master internal Triggers
  2. Make time for traction
  3. Back back external triggers
  4. Prevent distraction with pacts

He also has chapters for how to make your workplace less distraction-focused, and how to help your kids develop good habits.

Each chapter has a handy bullet-point summary at the end, which was nice. And there’s an index of these at the end of the book. I did appreciate those.
