Distractions are a major reason why we don’t get more done in our daily lives. So how are some people able to maintain laser focused on the task at hand? This hour, we’ll talk about the challenge of mastering our own minds with Matthew B. Crawford, senior fellow at the University of Virginia’s Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture. His book is The World Beyond Your Head: On Becoming an Individual in an Age of Distraction (Farrar, Straus and Giroux).
