Deep Work Book Outline Posted

written by milan

Deep Work emphasizes the need for constant awareness. In modern day society we are prone to distraction by all sorts of media and entertainment: TV shows, computer games, social media apps on phones…indirectly, or even directly, leading to ignorance. They are distracting because the entertainment provided is addicting—on purpose, so that the end user spends substantial amount of time, money, and/or attention unwillingly (in terms of life’s overreaching goals)—yet conditioned to believe they are in control. “Are you playing the game, or is the game playing you?”

Deep Work is also about focus; you need to be hyper-focused on a productive activity to achieve the optimal results, and cannot work efficiently when distracted by a recurring, shallow event like constant notifications on your phone.
