Escape from the dark side of distractions to live a better life
Somewhere along the way, we have become distracted. Maybe we don’t realize the extent to which our everyday rituals, favorite devices and apps, or where we focus our attention is affecting us. Reading Lifescale is like holding up a mirror, and revealing a new you, as your obsessive relationship with distractions melts away. From simple first steps to reclaiming your attention, to becoming more satisfied, inspired, and creative, this book will lead you through your own journey of lifescaling: redefining success on your own terms.
Who’s in charge of your destiny? Is it you? If you find yourself unable to go longer than a few minutes without checking your phone, or falling victim to some other digital distraction, you aren’t alone. As author Brian Solis documents, the corrosive effects of distractions and multitasking are of great importance—and you know you’re capable of more. Read this book to learn (and unlearn) how you can master the gifts of focus and creativity, and stop letting distractions master you.
Lifescaling is about:
- Being present and mindful in your physical life and your digital life
- Breaking the cycle of instant gratification to think critically and creatively
- Living and working in the now, without mentally wandering elsewhere, worrying about missing out, or waiting impatiently for the next thing
- Wasting less time on distractions, so you can spend more time doing what you love with whom you love
- Fostering creativity and imagination through powerful and life-changing daily rituals

A good answer must be more than a nice sounding platitude, or an abstract goal. It should exist as a filter for all organizational decisions and practices; and should be embedded into the way that you and your employees do business every day.
