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 uncomfortable with boredom and a lack of stimulation and distraction. In Hyperfocus, Chris Bailey - described by TED.com as 'the most productive man you could ever hope to meet' - provides profound insights into how we can best manage our attention. He reveals how the brain switches between two mental modes - hyperfocus, our deep concentration mode, and scatterfocus, our creative, reflective mode - and how the surest path to being our most creative and efficient selves at work is to combine them both.
A new insight on how to manage our indulgences.

A perfect book for wandering minds
This book perfectly describes the necessity of Hyperfocus but also dwells into a phenomenon called scatter focus, which I heard for the first time. Loved this book, and trying to implement each and every ideas and activities necessary to achieve both hyper and scatter focus. Thanks Chris Bailey for such a wonderful and insightful writing.
