Podcast 52: Being Indistractable

(Hey you. Here’s another free podcast. You don’t have to, but how about a follow on Twitter at @JamieMadigan or the site’s Facebook page?)

Welcome to part two of this two part miniseries on Psychology of Games summer reading. In this episode I talk with author and consultant Nir Eyal about how to use psychology and other methods to avoid being distracted by video games and other technology when you don’t want to be. It’s all in his new book, Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life, available now.

This episode’s guest expert, Nir Eyal.

Nir discusses the psychology behind distraction and its opposite, which he calls “traction.” Along with this, we talk about specific strategies for getting more traction and when it’s okay to be distracted by video games, social media, and other technology.
