An excerpt from my new book Hyperfocus: How to Be More Productive in a World of Distraction just went live on TIME Magazine’s website! In case you’d like to read it, I’ve posted a snippet and a link to the full article below.
I’m a lazy person. This surprises some people, especially considering that I write productivity books for a living. Take a day off, for example. Forget adventures — my preference for that free time is to lie on the couch, watch Netflix documentaries and read. And a week off? I’m the kind of person who prefers to stay home and eat pizza rather than travel the world. Luckily for me, this laziness is precisely what makes me so productive. And that’s a fact backed up by science.
