Currently reading: Stolen Focus by Johann Hari 📚
As a kid, I’ve always struggled with focus and attention, even without digital distractions. I’m a daydreamer. Today’s digital tools have made our lives simpler, yet at a cost. Even as I read the introduction to this book, I noticed I picked up my phone at least twice.
Staying focused becomes more manageable when working on something I enjoy—writing code, building something, solving a problem. It’s easy to get into focus during those times. We can’t always be in deep focus. What do we do when we’re not?
I’m hoping this book is not only about scare tactics. I’m not expecting some miracle cure, but perhaps a guide through my own thoughts to help figure out what works for me.
I hope I can stay focused enough to read through the nearly 300 pages in this book. :)
