From a New York Times bestselling author, learn to master one of our economy's rarest skills–the ability to focus–and achieve groundbreaking results.
Deep work is the power to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time–a superpower in our increasingly competitive economy. In Deep Work, author and professor Cal Newport presents four rules for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill:
1. Work Deeply
2. Embrace Boredom
3. Quit Social Media
4. Drain the Shallows
A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, Deep Work uses examples from Carl Jung to social media pioneers to demonstrate how great thinkers have focused their minds in a nonstop world.
