With the proliferation of information that has come to define our everyday life, be it at work or at home, the risk of being distracted is evermore pertinent.
In his book, Deep Work, author Cal Newport articulates an unconventional perspective on the benefits of distraction in the modern day. He writes about the sharpening of one’s ability to concentrate and stay driven amidst distractions, as a potential benefit of knowing how to thrive in a milieu that is overloaded with external input. The cultivation of a work ethic that is built on perfecting one’s ability to stay focused culminates in what the author calls “Deep Work”.
Through explaining the importance of deep work and how to cultivate it, the book will transform the reader’s habits of mind and lay the foundation to practise this life skill.
