Review:  In Indistracable by Nir Eyal we can understand, on a deeper level, why we allow things to distract us from accomplishing more important goals.  This book helps us potentially identify our “triggers,” which can keep us from finishing projects or tasks. One thing that resonated with me was that technology wasn't necessarily the reason why many of us are so distracted. I think this is key for a lot of people.  We may automatically think it's because of our phones and tablets.  But, that may not be the case at all. Some of us keep telling ourselves we’ll start or finish a certain project, but never actually do. Why? Well, that is the question this book will try to help you answer.

The chapters on scheduling was very informative in regards to making time for the important things and on keeping healthy relationships. The Indistracable model has four main parts: Mastering Internal Triggers, Making Time for Traction, Hack Back External Triggers, and Prevent Distraction with Pacts.  Eyal goes into depth in each of these parts. He also talks about how to make your workplace indistracable, as well as your children!

Overall, a great resource on time and life management. Backed by plenty of research, this book is not only good for adults, but for teenagers too! If you find yourself easily distracted, and it is keeping you from accomplishing your goals then this book is a must read! Recommended for ages 14 and up!
