Mike is joined today by productivity expert Chris Bailey. Chris is the internationally bestselling author of The Productivity Project, and most recently his second book, Hyperfocus: How to Be More Productive in a World of Distraction. Chris writes about productivity at ALifeOfProductivity.com and speaks to organizations around the globe on how they can become more productive, without hating the process. Fast Company has called him a “productivity mastermind” and the TED Talks organization said that he “might be the most productive man you’d ever hope to meet.” In this episode, we’re thrilled to have Chris join Mike to talk about the idea of Hyperfocus and how you can manage your attention in order to be more productive.
