Apple’s first user evangelist, Ellen Petry Leanse, reveals her top tools to overcome tech distraction so we can take charge of what matters most.
According to new research, Americans check their phone an astonishing average of 80 times per day. Technology has enabled instant and perpetual connection, yet as a society, we feel more disconnected than ever before.
It’s an unintended consequence of innovation that author, Stanford instructor, digital pioneer and Silicon Valley visionary Ellen Petry Leanse knows all too well. She spent 35 years working with extraordinary leaders at Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft to name a few, programming habits that revolved around our devices.
But, what if we could instead program habits that revolve around happiness? Drawing from decades of life lessons as a road-tested entrepreneur, that question inspired Leanse to develop a deeper understanding of neuroscience, design and mindfulness for her new book, The Happiness Hack.
In this episode of Project Luminary with Kristen Aldridge, learn how to reclaim focus for what matters most, reduce stress and make time to do the things we love.
