Deep Work

by Cal Newport


  • In DEEP WORK, author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. 

My opinion: 

  • Due to the short-attention span of our youth, I firmly believe that this book is a must-read if you desire to succeed in any endeavour.

Favorite quote:

““Two Core Abilities for Thriving in the New Economy 1. The ability to quickly master hard things. 2. The ability to produce at an elite level, in terms of both quality and speed.” 

― Cal Newport

Key takeaways: 

  • Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task.

  • Shallow work is non-cognitively demanding, logistical-style work, often performed while distracted.

  • Deep work is like a superpower in our increasingly competitive twenty-first-century economy.
