Concentration and Focus: the Principles of Deep Work

Nathan Robertson

Overview

Whilst multitasking may seem like the obvious solution to remaining a valuable member of your team, perpetual task-switching can actually negate your personal productivity. Staying connected through sporadic emails, accepting spontaneous meetings, or posting on social media may feel like a notable accomplishment, but research by Mckinsey demonstrates that "over half of our time spent working is spent managing work" rather than achieving meaningful results. Shallow work doesn't have any valuable impact, but how we execute faithful activities that generate real reward can be achieved with the guiding principles of deep work.

Perfected with the actionable expertise of the studied author and prominent professor, Cal Newport, this course allows business professionals, students, and anyone experiencing tireless underproductivity to create vastly focused output. It distills invaluable guidance that can positively transform habits into meaningful exponential productivity.

By mastering the four essential aspects of discipline discovered by Harvard professor, Clayton Christensen, Newport's key concentration and focus principles override the general perception of multitasking to accomplish a faster volume of completed tasks. Instead, it teaches you to learn how to integrate deep work into your activity and to execute sustained activities at a focused level.
