'ATTENTION! is a spiritual call to intentionality and a neurological commitment to a practical minimalism. From opening premise to page layout, Rob Hatch's examples of personal pain points stoke the embers of curiosity and self-examination while each page turned promises to bring the reader to the Zen-like conclusion that less is more.' -
'Rob has been telling me these ideas for more than a decade. As he's learned the concepts and tested them, he's taught them. More significantly, he's lived them. I've eaten his breakfast sandwiches when visiting his family. I've listened to the conversations with his family and seen the growth across time. I've watched his example and been shaped. I'm grateful that this approach to attentiveness is now available to people beyond Rob's friends and clients. I can testify that it's grounded in a deep caring for the people around him.' - Jon Swanson
'With Attention!, Rob Hatch offers an inspiring and practical guide that can support us all with putting greater success in our way. So many of us currently find ourselves living in a constant state of information overload and distraction that hinders our ability to focus on the things that matter most. The cutting-edge tools and frameworks included in this book help transform anxiety, overwhelm, and decision fatigue into new empowered habits that can lead to confident intentional action towards more meaningful success. This book should be considered essential reading if you are seeking to more effectively leverage your time, energy, and effort for the most impactful outcomes in these rapidly changing times.' - Aime Miyamoto, Business Alignment Consultant
'Rob Hatch has created something new in a crowded field: a flexible method that reframes how we can do our best work better. Because he built these frameworks for himself and his own struggles, they're simple and practical. Because he's been teaching them to hundreds of people, you know they work. I use these methods myself and with my team. It gives us the flexibility to be freely creative in our creative work and solidly productive in our structured work.' -Becky McCray, beckymccray.com

Since about March, I have tried time-blocking between remote school or summer activities with my son and the work I need to do but I didn't have a plan I could stick to. That meant my 'me' time was just responding to what was in front of me - my inbox, the squeakiest wheels, the news, the people who texted because I didn't get back to their email...
I was barely treading water and the current was slowly even pulling me backwards.
Then Attention! came in the mail. Since I picked it up, I have made some small changes and noticed a huge difference in my days, my businesses, and my personal life. Before Attention! I was getting stuff done and I was SO busy but I wasn't getting the RIGHT stuff done. My life was reacting to what other people wanted or what was in front of me.
With Attention! I was able to take some shells of a plan and put together a simple process that I can follow every. single. day. I feel confident I am spending time on the things I should be spending my precious time on. When the day is done and I see how much I have moved forward that I wanted to, I can also be more present for my son, my partner, and even the dogs. My mind isn't wandering to all the things I still need to do. My mind isn't racing as my head hits the pillow. I feel at ease that I did the best I could today and I know exactly where to start tomorrow. I have reclaimed my time, my life, and my attention.
Thank you, Rob. This book is going to stay on my desk AND I got a copy for my iPad. I plan on revisiting it regularly. It will be like having my own business and life coach in my pocket!
Like Pavlovian dogs, we have become conditioned to divert our attention with a mere tone from our phone, computer- or even someone else's device. Bong! It can feel like we have no control over our attention. Rob Hatch reminds us that control is within our grasp if we follow create and some simple habits that support our intentions. We can be productive, attentive, and enjoy life if we follow some simple plans.
Rob writes in a style that gives the reader small bites to digest. He offers recipes to create effective habits. Images of a more productive and satisfying life. Hope that our devices do not control us. That we can manage our devices, environment and our minds to pay attention to what is important.
A quick read- so you can implement and get on with a better life.
