WINNER OF THE PORCHLIGHT BUSINESS BOOK AWARD ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, New York Post, Mashable, Mindful
In the United States, teenagers can focus on one task for only sixty-five seconds at a time, and office workers average only three minutes. Like so many of us, Johann Hari was finding that constantly switching from device to device and tab to tab was a diminishing and depressing way to live. He tried all sorts of self-help solutionseven abandoning his phone for three monthsbut nothing seemed to work. So Hari went on an epic journey across the world to interview the leading experts on human attentionand he discovered that everything we think we know about this crisis is wrong.
 
We think our inability to focus is a personal failure to exert enough willpower over our devices. The truth is even more disturbing: our focus has been stolen by powerful external forces that have left us uniquely vulnerable to corporations determined to raid our attention for profit. Hari found that there are twelve deep causes of this crisis, from the decline of mind-wandering to rising pollution, all of which have robbed some of our attention. In Stolen Focus, he introduces readers to Silicon Valley dissidents who learned to hack human attention, and veterinarians who diagnose dogs with ADHD. He explores a favela in Rio de Janeiro where everyone lost their attention in a particularly surreal way, and an office in New Zealand that discovered a remarkable technique to restore workers productivity.
 
Crucially, Hari learned how we can reclaim our focusas individuals, and as a societyif we are determined to fight for it. Stolen Focus will transform the debate about attention and finally show us how to get it back.

Deals with how technology (esp. social media and distracting apps/websites) are eroding our focus. Has some personal suggestions, but the main call to action is to take collective action and rise up against surveillance capitalism. You'll learn:
• The 12 factors stealing your focus, including: information-overload and task-switching, obstruction of flow, sleep deprivation, decline of deep reading, loss of mind-wandering, technology hijacking our focus (a function of surveillance capitalism), the illusion of personal control, stress and hypervigilance, poor diet, pollution, ineffective responses to ADHD, and a modern lifestyle that's restricting children's growth.
• Specific steps you can take to address these factors at a personal level, as well as the changes we need to collectively create at a systemic level.

There's a lot to process here, but a major take away point is the combined damage of technology dependency, lack of sleep & good nutrition, and almost nonexistent freedom during childhood that is leading us down a dangerous path. We are becoming so stressed that our default mode is to zone out even further. If we don't make drastic changes, then it will only get worse.

“You don’t get what you don’t fight for.”

“In situations of low stress and safety, mind-wandering will be a gift, a pleasure, a creative force. In situations of high stress or danger, mind-wandering will be a torment.”

“She believed she had uncovered a key truth about focus: To pay attention in normal ways, you need to feel safe.”

“If you see the world through fragments, your empathy often doesn’t kick in, in the way that it does when you engage with something in a sustained, focused way.”

“We live in a culture that is constantly amping us up with stress and stimulation.” ( )

I loved most of the book, there's been quite some good advice I've been able to use to start healing my focus and I found the sections on how these sites are intentionally made to worsen our attention problems very enlightening. There is however a caveat - the chapter (or was it 2 chapters) on ADHD. Now, I'm not completely against touching on this as the problems with attention and how the environment is made to make it very hard certainly doesn't help people with ADHD, but he comitts all of the cardinal sins; 1) Not neurodivergent, 2) Talks with scientists about ADHD, 3) The scientists are not psychologists, 4) Narrows down ADHD to only being about paying attention, 5) Does not talk to anyone with ADHD or ND organization, 6) Only focuses on children, 7) Talks about cases of children mistakenly getting ADHD diagnosis but all of them are basically cases of gross misconduct by those who did it like a child who got a diagnosis of ADHD because he couldn't pay attention and had been sexually abused. A lot of concern against ADHD medication but really any solution other then that you can improve your attention in other ways, but again attention problems is only one (and maybe not even the biggest) issue people with ADHD have.

So by and large the book was very good, but I did want to write this out. And just as an aside I am SO tired of NTs writing/talking ABOUT US instead of TO US or WITH US. Sigh. ( )

Another ADD book that I got as an audiobook, but I’m already very discouraged. I don’t like the narrators accent and the book is too boring for anyone with ADD to finish. Like most self-help books, rather than telling you what you could do to help yourself in a nutshell, they pad and expand the book with long stories about this or that person and what they did. Everyone wants to write an ADD book nowadays and they’re very few that are actually helpful for managing ADD. ( )

A great (and important) read. I really liked the way Johann Hari writes and how he put all of his stories together into a coherent whole. Many of the topics he dives into will be familiar to a lot of readers, I think (myself included) - but to have them all so clearly presented, and the scientific studies explained, is powerful.

Cuanto más usas ciertas cosas, más fuertes se hacen las conexiones y mejor funcionan.» Si te cuesta concentrarte, prueba la monotarea durante diez minutos, y después permítete distraerte durante un minuto, y regresa a la monotarea otros diez minutos, y así sucesivamente. «A medida que lo haces, te acostumbras más y a tu cerebro se le da cada vez mejor, porque estás reforzando las conexiones [neuronales] implicadas en esa conducta. Y en poco tiempo podrás hacerlo así durante quince minutos, veinte minutos, media hora... Tú hazlo y ya verás. Practica. Empieza despacio pero practica, y lo conseguirás.»
Los estudios de Mihaly identificaron numerosos aspectos del flujo, pero a mí me parecía —a medida que leía sobre ellos en detalle— que, si quieres llegar hasta allí, lo que debes hacer se reduce a tres componentes fundamentales. Lo primero que hay que hacer es escoger claramente una meta definida: quiero pintar este lienzo; quiero subir corriendo esta montaña; quiero enseñarle a mi hijo a nadar. Debes decidirte a perseguirla, y dejar a un lado tus otras metas mientras lo haces. El flujo solo puede llegar con una «monotarea», cuando optamos por dejar de lado todo lo demás y hacer una sola cosa.
diseño del cerebro... Está diseñado para prestar atención a las cosas que nos importan»
Durante el sueño de ondas lentas, los canales cerebrales de líquido espinal se abren más y eliminan del cerebro los residuos metabólicos», me explicó Roxanne. Cada noche, cuando nos acostamos, se nos enjuaga el cerebro con un fluido acuoso. Ese líquido cerebroespinal lava nuestro cerebro, arrastra las proteínas tóxicas y las lleva hasta el hígado para librarse de ellas. «Así pues, cuando hablo con alumnos de la facultad, a eso lo llamo caquita de neuronas. Si no consigues concentrarte bien, es posible que sea porque tienes demasiada caquita neuronal circulando por ahí.» Ello explicaría por qué, cuando estamos cansados, «sentimos algo así como resaca», porque estamos, literalmente, cubiertos de toxinas.
Tomar pastillas para dormir es como someterse a una anestesia menor. El cuerpo no descansa, no se limpia, no se refresca, no sueña como debe.Roxanne también me dijo que existen algunos usos legítimos de los somníferos: por ejemplo, tomarlos durante un tiempo breve después de haber pasado por una pérdida traumática puede ser sensato. Pero, según su advertencia, «no es la solución al insomnio, indudablemente», y por eso se supone que los médicos no deben recetarlos a largo plazo.
