“A major premise of this book is that our Distracted Minds are generated by a head-on collision between our high-level goals and our intrinsic cognitive control limitations; this conflict generates goal interference that negatively impacts quality of life. If we want to overcome the derailing forces of goal interference, we need to increase our understanding and expand our awareness of our cognitive control limitations so that we can find ways to minimize those factors.”
