Overview

We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded by people and devices, all vying for our attention. By actively directing our attention, we can give ourselves the space and time that we need to create some of our best work.

Chris Bailey is an author and expert in the field of productivity. Hyperfocus was first published in 2018, just as our daily lives became saturated with a stream of endless notifications. As a traditional self-help book, it offers strategies for being more productive and aims to change your life for the better.

Hyperfocus explores the concept of intentional focus, what it is, and how to get better at doing it. The book also walks us through the necessary antidote to hyperfocus, scatterfocus. These two techniques, when used together, offer a balanced approach to boosting productivity and overall well-being.
