So the problem isn't the book, it's the depth of information that could've been explored but wasn't. For example, at one point it says that focus will be defined and that "you'll be surprised" but I found myself reading things I already know about focus.
The points, therefore, are great. Distractions are bad, tiredness or restlessness can affect your work ethic. There's a wealth of exploration possible there, with scientific backing from the very articles and sources that the book cites. Yet, it will then go into what distractions do and why they're bad for concentration, rather a much more insightful and interesting route of why we're drawn to distraction and how distraction can affect dopamine receptors more than sitting at a desk and doing tedious work.
So, in summary, the problem isn't what's in the book. On it's own, the book is a well written, nice little whistle-stop manual on what it is to be focused or distracted. The problem, therefore, is what the book could have been. The insight is possible with the sources, it's just that sometimes quick fixes are favoured over permanent insights into what it is to be human and to procrastinate.
I’ve always had trouble concentrating on one task, instead, I tend to flit between 3 or 4 things at the same tim, . However, having recently graduated I decided it was time to tackle my bad habits and stop myself from giving into distractions so easily.
I was recommended this book by a friend and I can’t even begin to explain how helpful it’s been. It seems I was falling into some classic distraction problems that are common for many people. Emails and notifications on social media would often get me off track for hours and I was over investing caffeine.
Now I feel like I can get into more of a flow in my work, focusing on just the subject at hand the time seems to fly by much more quickly.
A very useful and applicable book.
Damon Zahariades is a good author that goes straightforward to the root of the problem and offers some insight on why it happens and how we can avoid it and focus in an easier, faster way. Is it a mind-blowing new technique that will completely change the way you work? No. But it's a very well written book that tackles a lot of different issues, offering many strategies that you can adjust to your personal situation. The author's style is also very enjoyable, making this book very easy to read and to put his advices into practice. It envolves a different approach, a different mindset to help us be more focused and active. A nice reading for everyone who struggles with time management and attention deficit.
