Deep Work versus Shallow Work

Georgy Kurasov

“Deep Work,” by Cal Newport

— “Deep Work: Professional activities performed in a state of distraction-free concentration that push your cognitive capabilities to their limit. These efforts create new value, improve your skill, and are hard to replicate. Deep work is necessary to wring every last drop of value out of your current intellectual capacity.”
