Finished this with about 90 minutes to spare in #SuperSeptember, hitting my goal of 4 books finished!

I'm not convinced this needed an entire book - it could have just been a long form article. Because if you're picking up this book, you're already bought into the idea you don't want to spend 1/3 of this book being preached to about the value of deep work. The examples also very much skew to white men, a little more diversity is needed.

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2mo

I struggle with distraction. It wasn't great before 2020, but doomscrolling made it so much worse. I've made some attempts: todo lists, focus blocks, inbox zero, prioritized lists, to mixed success. Deep work has clicked for me. I think the focus on shallow, vs deep work, being intentional with your time, and what you're planning for, is really what's new about this for me.

I found this very intriguing. I am a person who struggles to not check notifications of new slack messages etc, so deep work can be hard for me. However, after reading this book, I‘ve been convinced to give it more of a go. #workbooks

BkClubCare Fabulous! Mind-focus is good for those neural paths in the brain, I bet. 🧠 5mo
annahenke @BkClubCare most definitely! 5mo
Sparklemn I'm struggling being back in the office with ringing cellphones, cubicle chatter, etc. I miss my quiet home! 5mo

I‘m listening to this one in hopes of applying some of the concepts to my creative work. I am constantly distracted in the workplace and don‘t make blocks for “deep work” … yet. Convince me Newport.

Listening on audio, and I like the narrator!

BkClubCare I like your commitment to read work relevant for 15 min/day. Let me know how this one is? (If you review it, tag me ?) 5mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Enjoyable, to the point book about different kinds of focus and when and how to use them. I enjoy this author‘s “I‘ve been there and know what it‘s like to struggle with this” style. Some new stuff, some things I‘d heard before, but a nice, useful book.

This was okay… good tips and anecdotes. Trying to keep myself motivated in my career and moving ahead. Time to focus.

fredthemoose Oooh… I go through phases of the same thing and reading similar books. I remember liking the tagged book but it‘s been a few years. Are there others you recommend? 12mo
Cosmos_Moon @fredthemoose I read Cheryl Sandburg‘s Lean In this year, I give it an “okay”. I liked it better than I thought I would. I thought this one was better, focusing on women and confidence by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman… (edited) 12mo
