Hyperfocus: Productivity in a World of Distraction | 2019 Session

The research is clear: the state of our attention determines the state of our lives. Yet our attention has never been as overwhelmed or in-demand as it is today. We’ve never been so busy while accomplishing so little, and we’ve grown increasingly uncomfortable with a lack of stimulation and distraction. This engaging workshop is a practical guide to managing your attention—the most powerful resource you have to get stuff done, become more creative, and live a meaningful life. Attendees will walk away with actionable tips to:

    • Work with fewer distractions;
    • Take advantage of the dot-connecting powers of your brain in order to work more creatively;
    • Increase your focus by working fewer hours;
    • Work with intention and discover your most important tasks; and
    • Strategically unfocus to take better mind wandering breaks.
