The Focused Life at Home

The Focused Life at Home

The goal of the focused life at home is to choose where to spend your time.

Unfortunately, our free time fails to live up to our ideal and instead of spending time on our hobbies, books or familiy moments, we get caught in the low-quality leisure trap - easy and available distractions like phones, television and social media, rather than the pursuits that actually matter.

The Paradox of Effort

The feeling of effort is a sensation of opportunity costs. When you’re doing anything, and an alternative activity promises to be easier and more immediately rewarding, the activity feels effortful.

This explains why people could spend all their time reading in earlier eras. They could do so because this activity didn’t need to compete with cheaper stimulation.

The Low-Quality Leisure Trap

Most of the meaningful things we could do in our free time require some kind of effort. And we sometimes lack the energy to do them.

We all want to be on our phones less, spend more time with our family, or dedicate ourselves to our hobbies. Except the day ends, we’re tired, and all of the things we value seem too difficult.
