“Who you are, what you think, feel, and do, what you love—is the sum of what you focus on.”
The book shows you how to achieve higher productivity and higher life satisfaction by acquiring the skills for “deep work” - the single-minded focus on work that allows you to be more effective and efficient.
1. Deep work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfilment that comes from craftsmanship.
2. Most people have lost the ability to go deep, they often end up spending their days in a blur of e-mail and social media.
3. Single-tasking is key: multi-tasking is a myth, it decreases your productivity.
READ IF: You have difficulty finding time for uninterrupted work and your days seem to be gone without you accomplishing anything valuable.
