Season 3 Trav & Los Premiere: Distractions Become Your Habits
Show Links: to the Late Nights with Trav and Los Season 3 Premier and Finale!I’m Los, your host tonight and Tav is joining us as the listener proxy.Discussion Points:* Catch Up* Los* Company was acquired via a merger with a company called Twenty* Our goal is to enable and enrich experiences by bringing people together in real life.* Building out Los Montoya Design Co on the side* Trav* Little Music Boxes* Topic* Nir Eyal* Nir Eyal is the bestselling author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products, which drew on his years of experience in the video gaming and advertising industries. He has taught courses on applied consumer psychology at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design and is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and at Fortune 500 companies. His writing on technology, psychology and business appears in the Harvard Business Review, the Atlantic, TechCrunch and Psychology Today.* I want to more specifically talk about the thesis that “Being Indisctractable will be the skill of the future” around his forthcoming book “Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life.”* This is interesting to me and want to expand on it with you for two reasons:* 1. We’ve talked about focus a bit in the previous seasons and* 2. Out of anyone I know, you continue to demonstrate how “indistractable” you can get and accomplish some pretty rad creative endeavors.* Distractions are the name of the game right now:* Pings* Knocks* Emails* Text Messages* Social Media* in a sense, our devices have “hijacked” our brains and it’s harder to disconnect from work in this interconnected world.* Distractions aren’t your fault, but they are your responsibility. So, how do we equip ourselves to manage these distractions?* So, what’s a distraction?* It’s something that draws us away from what we want to do, whether it’s to accomplish a task at home or work, enjoy time with a loved one, or do something for ourselves.* Distractions can become habits and we may be unable to sustain the focus required for creativity in our professional and personal lives.* We are inundated by digital distractions.* On the opposite side, we have Traction. Which is any action that moves us towards what we want. Actions done with intent. Traction is doing what you say you will do.* So, what prompts us to “traction” or “distraction”?* External triggers* Cues from our environment that tell us what to do* Internal triggers* Cues that come from within* How?* We are going to walk through and discuss these points from the medium post. They are well worded and actionable:1. Master Internal Triggers2. Make time for tractionPICK YOUR VALUES!!!!3. Hack back External Triggers4. Prevent distraction with pactsConclusion:The world is split into two types of people: those who allow their attention and their lives to be manipulated by others, and those who proudly call themselves indistractable.
The Last Episode
Hello, this is Travis. Los has been roaming around in the Utah desert for a few months, And I'm alone in a hotel room in New york, trying to force myself to edit this podcast that I've been putting off for too long. This is a particularly hard episode to make. I'm guessing you've read the title, so you know what I'm talking about. In this episode Los and I agree to end the podcast. It's officially over. In this episode you'll hear me dance around the topic for a while and finally work up the courage to suggest we end. It's kind of funny, it's mostly sad, but also joyful. Los and I are going to talk about some of the standout highlights of making late nights for the past few years, and give short updates about what is going on in our lives. I like it. I think it's a good episode. You know, it kind of reminds me of this thing Los and I would always tell each other when making content like this; we would say "End strong" – just end strong. It's okay if you loose your place or stumble around in the middle, just make sure to end on a high point. — And I think we do that here. I think this is a beautiful expression of what in my mind was always the best thing about this podcast: that Los and I love each other. I think that comes through —strongly.
We are back for Season 2
