Are you driven to distraction at work? Bestselling author Edward M. Hallowell, MD, the worlda€™s leading expert on ADD and ADHD, has set his sights on a new goal: helping people feel more in control and productive at work. You know the feeling: you cana€™t focus; you feel increasingly overwhelmed by a mix of nonstop demands and technology that seems to be moving at the speed of light; and youa€™re frustrated just trying to get everything done wella€”and on time. Not only is this taking a toll on performance, ita€™s impacting your sense of well-being outside the office. Ita€™s time to reclaim control. Dr. Hallowell now identifies the underlying reasons why people lose their ability to focus at work. He explains why commonly offered solutions like a€œlearn to manage your time bettera€ or a€œmake a to-do lista€ dona€™t work because they ignore the deeper issues that are the true causes of mental distraction. Based on his years of helping clients develop constructive ways to deal with distraction, Dr. Hallowell provides a set of practical and reliable techniques to show how to sustain a productive mental state. In Part 1 of the book, he identifies the six most common ways people lose the ability to focus at worka€”what he calls a€œscreen suckinga€ (internet/social media addiction), multitasking, idea hopping (never finishing what you start), worrying, playing the hero, and dropping the balla€”and he explains the underlying psychological and emotional dynamics driving each behavior. Part 2 of the book provides advice for a€œtraininga€ your attention overall, so that you are less susceptible to surrendering it, in any situation. The result is a book that will empower you to combat each one of these common syndromesa€”and clear a path for you to achieve your highest personal and professional goals.How to Focus and Be More Productive Ned Hallowell. pine trees that border the fairway (the landing ...
