Canada's productivity specialist is back with a whole new perspective on how to get more done with less.

Chris Bailey discovered many little-known insights into how we concentrate (a key aspect of productivity) through his studies and study, including the fascinating concept that focus isn't so much a state of heightened awareness (as we'd assume), but a compromise between two frames of mind. Our brain has two powerful modes that can be unlocked when we use our attention well, according to the most recent neuroscientific research on attention: a concentrated mode (hyperfocus), which is the basis for becoming highly efficient, and an imaginative mode (scatter focus), which allows us to connect ideas in novel ways. Hyperfocus allows readers to do both, enabling them to focus more intensely, think more clearly, and work and live more purposefully. Chris Bailey brings his unique approach to productivity to the next level in Hyperfocus, delving deep into the science and ideas on how and why we put our energy to bear on life's big goals and daily tasks while maintaining an approachable voice and insight that made him a fast favourite.
