My name is Scott Scheper, and I'm the author of How to Get Focused (http://www.howtogetfocused.com), a book about cutting out distraction and getting focus back in your life.
I've written the book using Wordpress, and releasing the book chapter by chapter. Thus far, chapters of the book have been featured in LifeHacker, YCombinator's Hacker News, Guy Kawasaki's Holy Kaw, The Big Picture, Upstart Entrepreneurs, and more.
It's also featured in the Wordpress Thesis Theme's Showcase.
I began writing How to Get Focused in January 2010. The reason you're reading this is because one night in a late, warm Southern California winter of 2009, I decided that I needed to get my life back. To be perfectly honest, I was inspired after watching the film Julie and Julia. I experienced a profound motivation to write a book. At that time in my life, I felt unfocused, out-of-control, and as if my life was slipping away into mediocrity. I'd work twelve hours, see my wife for a couple hours, get distracted by my dog, play Playstation 3 and then surf my iPhone until I fell asleep at 2 a.m. I could not find the answer to the question I was striving for: How do I get focused?
To counteract this lifestyle, I researched and wrote about the concept of focus, zen, and flow. The site grew rapidly, and I sold pre-orders for the book (which has allowed me to fund this design project).
