More information about the book:

I know that smart, driven people like you have unique gifts to bring to the world, but it’s hard to offer those gifts when you are overworked, overtired, and overwhelmed. And my pursuit of productivity has led me to the discovery that time is not our problem, as we all have the same 24 hours in a day, and we can’t control time.

Our problem now is one of distraction—from our ever-present technology and its ability to deliver communication and information to us in unlimited ways, all the time. This, in turn, has created expectations of immediate and constant availability, further fueling our need to stay connected, and therefore, our constant distraction. And since distraction is our problem, “time management” is not the solution. The antidote to distraction is attention. Our ability to manage our attention is our most important defense against a world that is constantly conspiring to steal it.

The competition for your attention has never been more heated. Our daily lives are full of “free” services that aren’t really free, but whose cost is actually your attention: the ability to serve you advertising (think Facebook and Google).

The Value of Your Attention

All of this means that attention is now the most valuable commodity. This is important to know if you are in business. However, as an individual, it’s critical to recognize that your only defense against this assault on your attention, is your ability to control it. THIS is what I call “attention management,” and why it’s the most important skill for you to master. It’s important now, and will only become more important in the future.

I am on a quest to solve those symptoms of distraction: feeling overworked, overtired, overstressed, and overstimulated. And to provide busy, driven people with tools and strategies to regain control of their lives and work so that they can live lives of choice, rather than lives full of distraction and reaction. You can do more of the things that matter most to you, and offer your unique gifts to the world every day. You can feel inspired and energized by your active life, instead of stressed and overwhelmed.

I’ve been sharing this message through my training and speaking services, and this book is my latest effort in support of that purpose. I’m so excited for you to realize the benefits of attention management. Enter your email address below and join me on the journey to control your attention to control your life!
