Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World* by Cal Newport was a really eye-opening and convicting book. It made me think seriously about how I use my time and how much time I’m on devices or mindlessly scrolling on the internet. There is so much that distracts us from our true work. There are so many things vying for our attention that takes us away from the things we really need to do.
I think one of the biggest takeaways from this is we need to really understand what we’re meant to put out into the world and then making that a priority. As well as focusing on the things that have a bigger impact on the overall picture. Whether it’s taking tasks off the best salesman so they can focus on that or knowing that scrolling through the full Facebook feed is going to bum you out, you can take control.
As a reminder, the links to the book on Amazon are affiliate links. As a reminder, an affiliate link is one that if you click and purchase the book (or something else) I’ll receive a small percentage at no additional cost to you. I ruthlessly only share products, services, books, etc, that I have personally used and only recommend what I think is useful and valuable.
