P.Marie Boydston Boy am I glad this one floated up to the top of my list. Is now my March goal. Thanks for a great review.

message 4: by Kees (new)

Kees Nice review. I use the words 'knowing' and 'realising' for what you describe. A lot of live lessons are kicking in open doors, but also let us revisit them and examing them closer by putting them in real life. This book is doing a great job at it.

Joey Robert Great review, Adam. I just bought the book after reading your bullet list of what you got out of it. I'd love to hear how your world has changed for the better after activating those things.

Navin Pareek Awesome... Carl Newport is fantastic. Makes a compelling case for cultivating intense focus and offers immediately actionable steps.

discostitches Brilliant review. I've stopped checking my phone mostly except with deliberate intention. I am active on social media - as a stay at home maker/crocheted being able to showcase what I've made to hundreds/thousands of people with the same interest provides a feedback loop and community which I do feel I gain a lot from. However every other week I delete the apps which has been making me so very conscious of what I think to post and when I wish to be distracted. This book has definitely kicked in an open door for me. I've found 15 hours a week where I am sitting undisturbed and absorbed learning to code. I highly recommend it.

Ken Your review definitely differentiate this book from the mindfulness and the here-and-now bandwagon.

I have made this book a priority in my to-do list in my personal kaizen.

message 10: by Gabriel (new)

Gabriel Gheorghiu "knowing" and *knowing*. It is true that plenty of books offer advice which one would see as common sense, but having that piece of information or opinion validated by a book is very motivational.

message 11: by Colleen (new)

Colleen "knowing" vs *knowing* is the perfect way to describe it.

message 12: by Nicole (new)

Nicole I agree with Colleen — a great way to put it!

Helmi Sulaiman Agree with yr comments

But I wouldn't remove the power of procrastination entirely too...
If we procrastinate strategically we can make use of Zeigarnik effect

Tammy Great recap!

message 16: by Michaela Simpson (new)

Michaela Simpson Great review. I feel like I could have written it myself! I've taken the same actions as you. Scheduling the day is still a challenge, but when it works it's magical. Keeping emails to dedicated 30 minute slots had also made a huge difference. Deleted my social apps and immediately felt lighter & happier!
