What is Bored at home book reviews?
Bored at home book reviews is a series that I felt compelled to release, keeping in mind the current market situation that has badly hit businesses and jobs across the globe. While you search for the next best opportunity, one way to keep yourself productively occupied is by indulging in reading good books. Hence, I decided to share reviews of a few books from my personal library.
Who knows how one good book recommendation could change your life in testing times, right?
As a part of this series, I have decided to limit the reviews to only the books that I like. I am not here to be a book critic, on the contrary, I am here to be that one person you would look up to for suggesting your next read!
- Book name and author:
Book name – Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life
Author – Nir Eyal
- What is it about?
Just as the title of the book suggests, this book is about helping you stay focussed by quashing distractions. The book makes the reader aware of some psychology backed reasons that help understand the cause of distractions. It also puts forward some concepts that could work as a corrective measure and lead to reduced distractions. One such concept is that of a ‘timebox among many others’.
- Who is it for?
If you find yourself getting distracted every now and then, this book is a must for you. Providing solutions to contemporary problems is what makes this book highly relatable. There is hardly any other book on concentration, out there in the market TODAY, that would be a better read than this.
- My favourite quote:
“Input is much more certain than outcome. When it comes to living the life that you want, making sure you allocate time to living your values is the only thing you should focus on.”
