Introduction: Deep Work Defined

1. Deep Work

  • Performing activities in a state of distraction-free concentration that pushes your cognitive capabilities to their limit.
  • These efforts create new value, improve your skill, and are hard to replicate.
  • Psychologists used to refer to deep work as “being in the flow."
  • Requires long periods of uninterrupted thinking.

2. Shallow Work

  • Non-cognitively demanding, logistical-style tasks, often performed while distracted
  • Tend not to create much new value in the world and are easy to replicate.

Deep work is the type of effort that is needed to stand out in a cognitively demanding field.
