Nir Eyal is a former lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and the author of Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. His first book Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products explored using the psychology of revolutionary products such as Facebook and Slack to make other products engaging and habit-forming. Indistractable, on the other hand, is about breaking bad habits – getting away from the things that distract us from what we really want to do with our time, attention and life.

He reads two pages from a chapter from his book ‘Indistractable,’ entitled How to be An Indistractable Lover. [reading begins at 3:40]

Hear us discuss:

  • “If you asked me today what superpower I’d want, I would want the power to be indistractable.” [2:07]
  • Surfing the urge: The key to mastering your internal triggers. [8:52]
  • “Most distraction begins from within us.” [9:54]
  • “Time management is pain management.” [10:13]
