I really enjoyed Nir Eyal’s book Indistractable and my interest was piqued even further by his recent interview on Marriage Kids & Money, where I heard him say something akin to the key to preventing distracted autopilot living is PLANNING.
(Maybe that’s not exactly what he said, but it’s what I heard, and at that moment I decided to see if he would come on BLP!).
Anyway, it was really fun to chat with Nir about the nature of distractions and how to avoid them. I tried to get him to go into more detail about his own planning processes (this is BLP after all!) and I’m not sure I was too successful, but it was an interesting conversation nonetheless.
COMING UP ON BLP:
Things to consider in beginning a new quarter/quintile
Summer planning (yes it’s already time)
And more 🙂
Please send me your email or audio questions + topic suggestions! And if you haven’t, I’d love it if you left a review wherever you listen to podcasts (here’s the link to BLP on apple’s podcast site if that helps!). Speakpipe’s audio link is below:
