IN THIS SUMMARY

Today’s knowledge worker–based business environment is rife with distraction, due in large part to the proliferation of network tools like email and social media. This distraction fragments our attention and leads us to spend an inordinate amount of time performing shallow work—work that adds little true value. Deep work—activities performed in a state of focused concentration—adds the most value to an organization and contributes to our personal and professional development, success, and fulfillment. In Deep Work, Cal Newport explains how you can overcome distractions, reduce the time you spend on shallow work, and make deep work a more dominant part of your life—leading to greater personal and professional achievement and satisfaction.
