Nir Eyal is on a mission to help us all become indistractable.

Technology has done a lot of wonderful things for us over the last decade. Tasks that were once extremely time-consuming or monotonous are now a lot more simple.

On the flip side, we can become extremely distracted by technology and it can keep us from focusing on what matters most. And for me, that’s family.

Nir shares how parents, like me, can control our attention and choose our lives ... while still living with the benefits of technology.
