My 151st podcast on personal productity dives into “Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World” by Cal Newport. also viewable on YouTube.

Newport differentiates the work that will lead you to success (deep work–thinking) from that work that just fills time (shallow work–answering email, reading Facebook, etc.).

He provides tips on organizing your day to emphasize setting aside blocks of time for deep work.

This is one of the personal productivity books from my recent binge reading. Previously I discussed The Power of the Other by Dr. Henry Cloud. Podcast or YouTube.
