While I preferred the applicational approach in Atomic Habits, Indistractable was transferable into my work life, so I got a lot from this. Nevertheless, there’s something in here for everyone, and it’s still worth the time to read!
There was a lot of focus on family and work-life balance, avoiding modern-day distractions like notifications on your phone. A lot of common sense, for example, if you don’t want to be distracted by your social media notifications, turn them off. Um, yep…okay. Got it.
I loved Nir Eyal’s book called Hooked, which was all about how tech companies design apps with psychology in mind to get the userbase hooked. I feel like knowing how they hook you helps you break the habits of being distracted by tech, more so than Indistractable. Hooked tells you how to hook people and keep them distracted, while Indistractable gives you tips not to be hooked. Hah!
If you’re on a tight time budget, I would probably skip this one and read Hooked by Nir Eyal and Atomic Habits by James Clear. That said, Indistractable is still worth a read!
