In Cal Newport’s “Deep Work,” he champions the practice of focused, distraction-free tasks that stretch cognitive limits, terming it ‘deep work.’ Renowned figures like J.K. Rowling and Bill Gates have utilised this approach to achieve significant milestones. Newport argues that such intense concentration not only boosts productivity but also enhances neural circuits in the brain. However, in our modern, distraction-laden world, cultivating this practice is challenging.

Essentially, the book emphasises the profound value of deep work in producing standout, innovative work in today’s digital age.
