" The state of our attention determines the state of our life"
This summer at Agile 2019, author Chris Bailey kicked off the conference with his keynote session “How to Manage Your Attention In a World of Distraction.” Chris has invested years of his life exploring productivity, distraction, and how to find the best possible use of the one thing no one has enough of—time. Chris shares his experiments and their results on his website ALifeOfProductivity.com and in his first book The Productivity Project, which recounts his first year of testing productivity hacks. His new book Hyperfocus explores understanding and managing our attentional space so we can be truly present and engaged (or hyperfocused) in work, as well as how “scatter focus” can enable us to be more creative and connect different ideas.
In this interview, Chris and I talk about his productivity experiments, what worked and what didn’t, and the critical role meditation plays in becoming more focused and engaged in the most important work.
