Summary, etc.: Georgetown University professor and popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in one's professional life.In 2012, Cal Newport coined the term "deep work" on his popular blog, Study Hacks, and began exploring the methods and mindset that foster a deep work practice. The concept quickly hit a nerve. Newport's articles on the topic have been read hundreds of thousands of times and were picked up and promoted by other bloggers and traditional media.Now, in Deep Work, Newport explains how to systematically train the mind to focus and reorganize our work lives so that deep work is at the core. He argues why this shift is crucial to stay ahead in a complex information economy. Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions we can make in an increasingly distracted world.
