I am remarkably successful for someone who finds it hard to focus and finished things. Now this trait has been validated by the new book Tinker Dabble Doodle Try by Srini Pillay, M.D – which basically says you can harness your “unfocus” to become more productive and creative.

About Tinker Dabble Doodle Try by Srini Pillay, M.D.: “Harness your mind’s innate tendency to wander, stall, rest, and unfocus and become more productive—in the boardroom, living room, or classroom. To finish tasks and achieve goals, most people believe that more focus is the solution. We rely on to-do lists, calendar reminders, noise-blocking headphones, and sometimes medication to help us concentrate—even though these tactics often fail to substantially improve productivity. Drawing on the latest brain research, compelling stories from his psychological practice, and colorful examples of counterintuitive success from sports, business, education, and the arts, neuroscientist Srini Pillay, M.D., challenges traditional ideas about productivity, revealing the lasting, positive benefits of adding deliberate and regular unfocus to your repertoire. A fascinating tour through brain wavelengths and rhythm, mindsets, and mental relaxation, Tinker Dabble Doodle Try demonstrates how specific kinds of planned unfocus stimulate cognitive calmness, jumpstart productivity, enhance innovation, inspire creativity, improve long-term memory, and, of course, help you stay on target.”

Seriously, if this works for me I am going to be so productive you won’t know what to do with me.

In the meantime, wait, is that a squirrel?

Tinker Dabble Doodle Try by Srini Pillay, M.D. is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers everywhere.
