Concentration and Focus: the Principles of Deep Work

by Nathan Robertson


Multitasking may seem like the obvious solution to remaining a valuable member of your team in a fast-paced work environment. But perpetual task-switching can actually negate your personal productivity. Fortunately, there is a better way.

This course from blogger and startup director Nathan Robertson draws on the attention management principles of professor Cal Newport to transform habits into meaningful productivity. By mastering the four essential aspects of discipline discovered by Clayton Christensen, these key concentration and focus principles override the urge to multitask, instead teaching you to integrate deep and sustained work into your daily routine.
