The concept of deep work is highly neglected in the modern workplace, but according to best-selling author Cal Newport, it is necessary to achieve great things. Deep work is a phrase coined by Newport, and it describes the ability to focus without distraction. In a world where workers are drowned in emails, meetings and other shallow tasks, people are losing the ability to do deep work. This is a problem because it takes deep work to accomplish very difficult tasks at the highest level. The problem affects students as well because they are finding it harder and harder to focus on studying and other important tasks. In Deep Work, Newport explains how professionals and students can reclaim their ability to achieve deep work. Take your output to the next level by embracing the concentration needed for deep work, and the rewards will flow.
