The & # 39; deep work & # 39; It will make you better at what you do. You will get more in less time. And feel the feeling of true satisfaction that comes from mastering a skill.

Cal Newport is an assistant professor of computer science at Georgetown University. In addition to studying the theoretical foundations of our digital age, Newport also writes about the impact of these technologies on the world of work. His most recent book, Deep Work, argues that the focus is the new I.Q. in the modern workplace and that the ability to concentrate without distractions is becoming increasingly valuable. He previously wrote So good that they cannot ignore you, a book that discredits the traditional belief that "follow your passion" is good advice, and three popular books of unconventional advice for students.
