What's your Superpower?

What's your Superpower?

To live the life we want, we not only need to do the right things, but we also need to stop doing the things that divert us from our goals.

  • We need to learn how to avoid distraction. Living the life we want not only requires doing the right things, but also necessitates not doing the things we know we'll regret.
  • The problem is deeper than tech. Being indistractable isn't about being a Luddite. It's about understanding the real reasons why we do things against our best interests.
  • Here's what it takes. We can be indistractable by learning and adopting four key strategies.

Traction & Distraction

Traction & Distraction

We can understand traction as the actions that draw us towards what we want in life.

On the other hand, distractions impede us from progressing towards our envisioned life.

Both traction and distraction are prompted by triggers. These triggers can be internal or external.

These triggers, wether internal or external, result in an action which can be aligned with our broader intention (traction), or misaligned (distraction).

  • Traction helps us accomplish goals.
  • Distraction leads us away from them.

Focus on your true needs

Focus on your true needs

We are compelled to reach for things we supposedly need but really don't.

  • We don't need to check our email right now.
  • We don't need to see that Instagram story.

Though it's not our fault distractions exist, managing them is our responsability.

I'm a 23 yo life-passionated living in Barcelona. I write about many different topic books I read, as well as TED Talks and many other content.

These ideas are a summary of the introduction of Indistractable. Soon I will publish more ideas respecting the parts of the book, from the 1st to the 7th part, in order to go deeper as it deserves.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
