Productivity Today: Managing Attention in the Digital Age

by Kevin Siskar


It's difficult to be productive for an entire work day when your attention is being constantly drained by notifications. Even when you think you've mastered the art of scheduling and time management, there's still that constant struggle to stay focused on your projects. Effective prioritization requires a rigorous examination of the things you set out to accomplish: focusing on the urgent rather than just working through a backlog.

Kevin Siskar is an investor, serial entrepreneur, and Managing Director of The Founder Institute in New York. In this course, Siskar explores how small habit changes can help you minimize distractions, prioritize goal-aligned tasks, and create a routine that conserves your time and attention.
