Tell me your top work distractions—and win a prize!

by | Jul 31, 2018 | Housekeeping

Hope your week is off to a great start! I’m writing a big blog post about the largest distractions we face at the office, and I need your help. I’ll even bribe you for it.

I need you to answer a simple question: what are the top 5 distractions you face as you work? (Email me your answers directly at

I’ll randomly pick 50 people who email me back with an answer. If you win, I’ll send you a free, signed bookplate—a sticky piece of paper you can paste on the inside cover of my next book, Hyperfocus: How to Be More Productive in a World of Distraction. In the interest of inclusivity and not being one of those annoying authors who pushes their fun new book too much, preordering the book isn’t necessary to enter, and I’ll send one of these things anywhere in the world. Contest ends August 14th.

You can stick this bookplate in endless places—inside Hyperfocus is just one of them. You can also stick it on your fridge. Or on your laptop. Or on your forehead, so you can brag to your friends about winning some random email contest. You can even stick it in another author’s book, though I may never forgive you.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Have a wonderful week,
