A simplicity manifesto in the Age of Distraction

A Guided Readthrough by LoneWolf at MasterIt.ca


Welcome to the MasterIt.ca presentation of Leo Babauta's focus. One problem that I have with eBooks is that I don't always have time to read them through in one session. Then I lose my place or forget to come back and finish it. Because I know I'm not the only one who has this problem, I'm making this book available different formats to allow you to read it in a more consistent and manageable fashion.

I'm calling this a Guided Readthrough. If this works well for enough people I'll look for other titles that can be presented in this format. Let me know what you think!

This book is a valuable read for anyone who wants to simplify their life. One of the formats below should help you to read this important book at a pace that suits you. But make sure that you read it!

In MasterIt.ca University

Using the Course Progress Flags, members of MasterIt.ca can keep track of where they are in reading this book. You can also bookmark pages that you want to come back to for later review. There is also room for you to share your thoughts at the end of each section and interact with other readers.

Pros

  • Free!
  • Read as much as you want at any time and keep a progress marker to come back to
  • Bookmark pages to review
  • Share your comments on each section and interact with other readers

Cons

  • Requires you to be a member of MasterIt.ca (come on, is that really a con?)
  • If you forget to check back the progress flag isn't much use
  • You don't get the commentary and resources from the email

NOTE: You can read the book here without becoming a member, but you won't have the option to use the course progress flags, bookmarks or leave comments. It will be a read-only experience.

With Email Reminders

Alternatively, you can sign up for an email series that will send a daily or weekly email with a link to the next page. This way you can read it in sections without having to remember where you were. It will link you back to the page here at MasterIt.ca, but you won't need to sign up as a member here to see it (but you won't be able to comment unless you're a member). You will also get my commentary and links to other resources in the emails as well.

I'm hoping to make it possible to pause the emails (when you're on vacation for example) or switch from weekly to daily or vice versa. In the mean time, there will be instructions to email me so I can manually adjust your settings as needed.

Pros

  • Free!
  • Get my commentary and other resources in the emails
  • You don't have to remember to come back
  • Allows you to read one section at a time and digest the information

Cons

  • Cannot use bookmarks, progress flags or leave comments (unless you're a member of MasterIt.ca as well)
  • You go at the pace of the email series (either daily or weekly) -- you could read ahead but the email reminders won't keep track of that so they'll send you back to pages you've already read

Download eBook

Another option is to download the eBook (PDF) itself. This is a free option. You won't even be asked to opt-in to a mailing list. This book is freely available without any copyrights (which allows me to share it with you in these ways). Download focus by Leo Babauta

Pros

  • Free!
  • You can print it out and read it at your leisure
  • Don't need an internet connection when you want to read it

Cons

  • No bookmarking (unless you print it out) or reminders to read
  • You miss out on the community and commentary by me

Purchase the Extended Version from Leo

Finally, you can purchase an extended version (described in detail in the Introduction) which includes extra chapters and resources. Keep in mind that I am an affiliate for some of Leo's books, but not this one.

Pros

  • Valuable bonus information
  • You can print it out and read it at your leisure
  • Don't need an internet connection when you want to read it

Cons

  • Not free (but reasonably priced)
  • No bookmarking (unless you print it out) or reminders to read
  • You miss out on the community and commentary by me
