Deep Work Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World
Cal Newport, an author and academic, flips the narrative on effect in the connected age in his book Deep Work. Instead of explaining that distraction is bad, he extols the virtues of its polar opposite. He divides the book into two parts, the first of which argues that establishing a strong work ethic would pay off in almost every job. He then lays out a tough training regimen for modifying your mind and behaviours to support this skill, which he portrays as a series of four “rules.”
Deep work is the ability to focus on a cognitively difficult task without being distracted. It’s a skill that enables you to grasp complex material fast and deliver superior results in less time. Deep labour will improve your skills and give you the sense of true joy that comes with expertise. In our increasingly competitive twenty-first-century economy, hard work is akin to a superpower. Despite this, the majority of people have lost the ability to dig deep, instead spending their days in a hectic swirl of e-mail and social media, unaware that there is a better way.
Deep Work is a mix of cultural criticism and practical advice that takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories—from Carl Jung erecting a stone tower in the woods to a social media pioneer purchasing a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free of distractions in the air—and no-nonsense advice, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit s
Deep Work is a must-read for everyone who wants to achieve focused success in a distracted environment.
