Distraction can come in all different forms. It can be from unnecessary chit-chat with your colleagues at work, smart phone notifications or even being the “always on” parent. The constant challenge of blocking out the “noise” and focusing on the most important task can sometimes feel impossible.
Today, we’re going to conquer distraction together. The goal for today’s episode is to help you win back your time, your attention and your focus.
I’ve invited a guest who is on a mission to rescue us from our distracted selves. Workplace consultant and author Curt Steinhorst joins us on the podcast today to discuss his new book “Can I Have Your Attention*?”. This new book focuses on inspiring better work habits and getting stuff done in a constantly connected workplace.
Outside of his writing and consulting work, Curt speaks more than 75 times a year to everyone from leadership associations and global non-profits to Fortune 100 companies. He’s also married with a 3-year-old and 1-year-old so if anyone knows a thing or two about maintaining focus and winning, it’s this guy.
Although Curt’s new book focuses a lot on improving your work life, Curt and I also chat about how we can battle distraction at home. Selfishly, the goal of that discussion was to learn how I can become a more focused father and thoughtful husband.
What are we covering today?
Curt and I chat about:
- Distraction at work
- Distraction at home
- How we can maintain focus in both places and conquer distraction
If you’re looking for ways to optimize your day, become more successful and win for your family, you will not want to miss today’s podcast. I felt motivated by my chat with Curt and I hope you will too.
