The Value of Deep Work in the Age of Distraction

the-value-of-deep-workHave you ever spent an entire day at work feeling really busy and yet at the end of the day you realize you weren’t very productive at all? And when you resolve to do better the next day and dig into deeper work, you find that you can’t focus. You still have an overpowering itch to check your email or scroll through your Instagram feed.
If that sounds familiar, this show is for you. Our guest, Cal Newport, is the author of So Good They Can’t Ignore You on how you shouldn’t necessarily follow your passion. He now has a new book called Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World, and it’s just as insightful and paradigm-shifting as his last. In this podcast Cal and Brett discuss why being able to concentrate deeply on hard tasks is the skill that will set you apart in today’s marketplace and how deep work can lead to a more meaningful life.
