Summary

Learn to focus more deeply and intentionally!

In this world, in this 21st century, it is becoming harder and harder to stay focused. Distractions have increased, and technology and commercial advertising have not helped us much. We find ourselves in a constant battle between shifting our attention and allowing ourselves to be "caught" by the things of the moment. Where is the balance? How can we choose what we want to pay attention to? This is exactly the theme of this elaborate book. You will learn, for instance:

  • How social media, devices, and other technology have influenced our attention span
  • The value of paying attention to something or someone specifically
  • The definition and benefits of deep focus
  • How disorders such as ADD, autism, and schizophrenia are related to the ability to concentrate
  • A list of external and internal distractions you need to deal with in life to keep your eyes on your target
  • Specific tips and exercises to help you increase your attention span and train your brain
  • Different types of attention, all with their own pros and cons, and how to balance them out to reach optimal happiness and success
  • Thoughts on creativity, the "bigger picture", and tunnel vision

Begin listening now and help yourself train your brain the right way.

Helpful list and tips

This book had a good amount of exercises that I plan on trying. I really hope that the ones mention would help me in my chosen field. I will be reading more self-help books regarding memory retention and concentration. I know that the main problem why it takes me about 5 hours to study things is that my concentration falters off more often than the actual studying. I know that if I have the right mindset and concentrate enough, I could possibly finish studying in an hour or two.

Gain more focus on your daily tasks with the help of this book and see that you hold control even tough situations.

Lovely audio book

I really liked the section on listing the difficulty of a habit you want to start having. That one I will definitely start with to start focusing better. We always say we will do this or that, but this book has so many good ideas on how to stay focused or increase the time you focus, it is a must listen if you have any problems with concentrating or focusing.

It also made me look at my weaknesses in a new and refreshing way. This book was personally helpful to me. A new day I start now in order to concentrate on what lies ahead of me. I will not be distracted, and do my tasks.

Helpful list and tips

Any additional comments?

There is nothing earth-shattering new here, but nothing off the wall either. If you are looking for deep psychological explanations for improving you focus, that is not what this book is about. But if you are looking for a short list of helpful suggestions, you will probably find this book to be of help. It's a very quick listen. I heard it in a single sitting.

Great Book to identify what is most effective:

The ability to focus is becoming rarer, and those with the short short attention span are increasing. If you can resist this trend, if you want to stay away from distraction and stay concentrated on what matters most, and if you can use your time more efficiently and more done, then here is the book for your all above situations, that provides help at each and every step of your life. Recommended.
