The biggest price we pay for surrendering our attention is productivity at work. Estimates as to the loss of productivity in the workplace due to “screen-sucking,” time wasted on line or in front of some other screen, as well as other distractions vary widely, but all come in with big numbers.

This webinar with Dr. Hallowell, based on his new book, Driven to Distraction at Work: How to Focus and Be More Productive, will provide you with tips and takeaways on how to work smarter, not harder.

Register here to learn how to recognize and deal with the six most common distractions at work; and acquire solutions for managing your attention over time, so that you’re better equipped to overcome whatever distraction is holding you back from doing your best work.

We live in an era where control of our minds is up for grabs – join Dr. Hallowell and learn how to master the wand called your mind.

Please register in advance to join in. You’ll then get an email on Jan 27 – it’s to remind you, and it will have the link to join the webinar. Register here.

Dr. Hallowell’s January Note

As we head into 2015, let me please take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of the audience that receives this newsletter along with the “Notes from Ned” that appear in it. I love the chance to connect with you this way.

I was thinking how cool it would be if you all could connect with each other, at least a bit. To that end, I am inviting you to send an email to me with comments you’d like me to send along to the readership. Comment on anything. Surprise us. Say what’s on your mind about anything, or offer your favorite recipes for a Super Bowl party.

Speaking of which, as some of you know, I am a devoted Patriots fan. My family has been season-ticket holders since they day the team hired Bill Parcells decades ago. Our 3 kids have grown up going to Patriot games. Those trips became the highlights of every fall, and we put enormous energy and creativity into the tailgating as well as the flinging of the ball in the parking lot. It was a pure celebration of life–in a sprawling, charcoal-burning, dancing and carousing parking lot full of rabid fans.

Now that our kids have all left home–the youngest of our 3 is a Freshman at Trinity–Sue and I may give up our tickets, as we are getting old to go Sundays, and the crowds are, well, crowded. It’s easier to watch from home, the bathrooms have no lines, and the refreshments cost less. But we will always have those memories. Such memories! Win or lose, those games stirred our hearts and gave us fantastic, unforgettable togetherness time.

My wish for all of you is that you find places to come together with people you love. Create traditions and rituals, as we did with the Patriots. Pick something you like to do, combine it with people you love, add food and drink and maybe music, and you have all you need to live life to the fullest.

I just turned 65. My kids laugh at me for being so old. But I’ve learned a few valuable lessons over those 65 years, by far the most important of which is this: love truly is the answer. Don’t fear it. Don’t get embarrassed by the word. Bring it out and use it all you can. Go into each day ready to give love and receive it.

Do this, and you will own the secret to a great life.  Just don’t keep it secret!

Free Resource for Parents with Children who have a ADHD or other Learning Disabilities

Does your child have a learning disability? Understood is a FREE resource. It is really a gift from heaven. Type in your child’s issues, and find marvelous video clips of children who have these issues themselves describing what it is like. There is also a great community of support and daily chats and webinars with experts and chat rooms. I think it will change the whole world for these children and their parents. Not only is it free, it’s not attached to drug companies or anyone trying to sell anything. It’s almost too good to be true. Read more ParentMap
