Cal Newport, author and professor at Georgetown University, flips the narrative on impact. Instead of arguing distraction isn’t good for us, he instead celebrates the benefits of focus. He then goes on to explain why developing a deep work ethic is so important for anyone who wants to succeed. He then presents a series of rules, which he claims will transform your mind and habits to help you become better at this skill.
