Deep Work – Cal Newport

This book is about the importance of ‘Deep Work’, what it is, and how to implement it. Three to four hours a day of uninterrupted, thoughtfully directed, concentrated effort is productive, rare, and valuable in today’s economy. Deep Work is fully concentrating on specific tasks, without distraction, whilst pushing cognitive abilities to their limit. A range of influential people across the ages applied Deep Work principles – from Carl Jung to Bill Gates; from Mark Twain to J.K. Rowling. Our world is becoming increasingly distracted and unproductive – it requires effort to change behaviours to incorporate deep working practices into our lives.
