How to be indistractable
Control your attention and your life

Free Online Crash Course | Wednesday, 9 October from 3-4pm BST | Exclusive for Public Servants & Policymakers

At the office, a colleague interrupts your work on a project, and you aren’t able to finish. It feels like someone (or something) is constantly pulling you away from what you really want to do. As government becomes more digital, this is happening more than ever.

Why does it seem we’re no longer in control of our attention or our lives? How different would your life be if you were “indistractable”?

Nir Eyal wrote the book on how tech companies get people “Hooked”. After years of teaching at Stanford, Eyal now reveals the Achilles’ heel of distraction in his new book, “Indistractable”.

In this exclusive free online workshop for public servants, Nir Eyal will share a practical plan for mastering the skill of the century: getting the best of technology, without letting it get the best of you. You’ll learn:

  • Why distraction at work is a symptom of sick team culture — and how to fix it;
  • What really drives human behaviour and why “time management is pain management”; and
  • How to regain your brain for greater focus and follow-through as a public servant.


Open to all participants from the public service, civil society, and academia. If you are not yet a member of Apolitical, you will be taken to a signup page that will automatically register you for the workshop.
