Where does motivation come from? Why do some people seem to have vast reserves of it, and others struggle to achieve the elusive ‘tunnel vision’? In an age of technological overload, how can you better organise your priorities without risk of distraction?

Not only will you unlock the science of inattention, you will discover how to better identify your priorities, how to create boundaries that enable you to reach them, and how to focus and refocus your mind to retain important information.
