Read the Wall Street Journal Bestseller for "cultivating intense focus" for fast, powerful performance results for achieving success and true meaning in one's professional life (Adam Grant, author of Give and Take).
Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep-spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there's a better way.
In DEEP WORK, author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. He then presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four "rules," for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill.

In an unorthodox approach, Georgetown University professor Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice, and sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving their careers.

Not only are pre-existing passions rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work, but a focus on passion over skill can be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. Spending time with organic farmers, venture capitalists, screenwriters, freelance computer programmers, and others who admitted to deriving great satisfaction from their work, Newport uncovers the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided in developing their compelling careers.

Cal reveals that matching your job to a pre-existing passion does not matter. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it.

With a title taken from the comedian Steve Martin, who once said his advice for aspiring entertainers was to "be so good they can't ignore you," Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto is mandatory reading for anyone fretting about what to do with their life, or frustrated by their current job situation and eager to find a fresh new way to take control of their livelihood. He provides an evidence-based blueprint for creating work you love, and will change the way you think about careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.

"Newport is making a bid to be the Marie Kondo of technology: someone with an actual plan for helping you realize the digital pursuits that do, and don't, bring value to your life."--Ezra Klein, Vox

Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It's the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.

In this timely and enlightening book, the bestselling author of Deep Work introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives.

Digital minimalists are all around us. They're the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones. They can get lost in a good book, a woodworking project, or a leisurely morning run. They can have fun with friends and family without the obsessive urge to document the experience. They stay informed about the news of the day, but don't feel overwhelmed by it. They don't experience "fear of missing out" because they already know which activities provide them meaning and satisfaction.

Now, Newport gives us a name for this quiet movement, and makes a persuasive case for its urgency in our tech-saturated world. Common sense tips, like turning off notifications, or occasional rituals like observing a digital sabbath, don't go far enough in helping us take back control of our technological lives, and attempts to unplug completely are complicated by the demands of family, friends and work. What we need instead is a thoughtful method to decide what tools to use, for what purposes, and under what conditions.

Drawing on a diverse array of real-life examples, from Amish farmers to harried parents to Silicon Valley programmers, Newport identifies the common practices of digital minimalists and the ideas that underpin them. He shows how digital minimalists are rethinking their relationship to social media, rediscovering the pleasures of the offline world, and reconnecting with their inner selves through regular periods of solitude. He then shares strategies for integrating these practices into your life, starting with a thirty-day "digital declutter" process that has already helped thousands feel less overwhelmed and more in control.

Technology is intrinsically neither good nor bad. The key is using it to support your goals and values, rather than letting it use you. This book shows the way.
>> „Cal Newport je jasným hlasem v moři hluku, v jeho knize je v věda a vášeň ve vzácné rovnováze. Nepotřebujeme více kliknutí, více koťátek, více smajlíků. Potřebujeme neohroženou práci – práci, ke které dospějeme, přestaneme-li těkat.“ <<
– Seth Godin, author knihy Kopni do té bedny

V dnešní době neustálé online dostupnosti většina lidí ztratila schopnost ponořit se hluboce do práce a své dny místo toho tráví v horečné smršti emailů a sociálních sítí, aniž by si uvědomovali, že existuje lepší možnost.

V knize Hluboká práce představuje Cal Newport svůj stejnojmenný koncept – schopnost soustředit se bez rozptylování na kognitivně náročné úkoly. Hluboká práce vám umožní rychle pochopit složité koncepty a vytvářet lepší výstupy v kratším čase, díky čemuž se zlepšíte v tom, co děláte, a získáte pocit skutečného naplnění z mistrně odvedené práce. Jde vlastně o jakousi superschopnost („nové IQ“) stále konkurenčnější ekonomiky 21. století.

Místo omílání, že rozptylování je špatné, oslavuje Newport přínosy opaku. V knize rozdělené na dvě částí nejdříve dokládá, že pěstování zvyku hluboce pracovat má obrovské výhody téměř v jakékoli profesi. Poté přichází s propracovaným tréninkovým plánem v podobě čtyř „pravidel“, který má přenastavit vaši mysl a zvyky tak, aby přispívaly k rozvoji schopnosti hluboce pracovat.# V knize se dozvíte:
- jaký je rozdíl mezi hlubokou a mělkou prací
- proč vinou mělké práce nikdy nevystoupíte z průměru
- že hluboká práce pomáhá učit se rychle nové věci a produkovat špičkové výstupy a především dává pocit smyslu
- jak hlubokou práci udělat vaším hlavním profesním nástrojem
- jakými způsoby využívali a využívají převahu hluboké práce velcí myslitelé, spisovatelé a podnikatelé
- proč jsou multitasking, vyrušování, emaily a internet vůbec zkázou pro váš osobní rozvoj a výkon – pokud je neudržíte v přísných mezích
- proč a jak se zbavit mělkosti v sociálních vztazích
- že i když pracujete s internetem a potřebujete být dostupní, nemusí to znamenat, že vaše práce na musí být mělká
- jak si s ohledem na dva typy práce uspořádat den, týden, rok
- jak zavést hlubokou práci do týmu či firmy
- jak měřit svůj výkon a tím stále prohlubovat pracovní výkon bez zvýšení časové náročnosti
- proč je lepší odpočívat od soustředění než od rozptylování

## O knize

Tápete v profesním životě? Nevíte, jaká práce by vám přinesla spokojenost a naplnění? Hlavně se při jejím hledání neřiďte omílanou radou, abyste „následovali svou vášeň“ a „dělali to, co milujete“. Tato poučka není jen romantickým mýtem, ale je přímo nebezpečná – vede k chronické fluktuaci a k úzkostem, jakmile váš sen nevyhnutelně narazí do betonové zdi reality.

Cal Newport má lepší radu: pocit pracovního štěstí vám nepřinese „to pravé, vysněné zaměstnání“, ale vaše dovednosti a vaše žádanost na trhu práce. Kniha vyvrací desítky let opakované kariérní rady a ukazuje, že ideální zaměstnání si můžete, ba dokonce musíte vybudovat sami. A především vás naučí, jak se k němu postupnými kroky dopracovat.

## V knize se mimo jiné dozvíte

- Proč je snaha hledat práci na základě nadšení škodlivá.
- Na jakém pracovním trhu se pohybujete a co z toho pro vás vyplývá.
- Co je to kariérní kapitál a jak ho cílevědomě budovat.
- Že skvělé zaměstnání má zpravidla tři hlavní rysy: je kreativní, uplatňujete díky němu svůj vliv a máte nad svou prací kontrolu.
- Jak při hledání nových příležitostí aplikovat systém „malých sázek“.
- Co je pravidlo pozoruhodnosti a čím se dopracujete k mistrovství ve svém oboru.
- Jaké pasti vás čekají na cestě k větší pracovní svobodě a jak se jim vyhnout.

O trabalho focado é a capacidade de se concentrar sem distração em uma tarefa cognitivamente exigente. É uma habilidade que lhe permite dominar rapidamente informações complicadas e produzir melhores resultados em menos tempo. O trabalho focado irá torná-lo melhor no que você faz e fornecer a sensação de realização verdadeira, como acontece no artesanato, por exemplo. Em suma, é como um super poder na economia cada vez mais competitiva do século XXI. E, ainda assim, a maioria das pessoas perdeu a habilidade de se aprofundar em algo — gastando seus dias em um borrão frenético de e-mails e redes sociais, sem perceber que existe uma maneira melhor.

Em Trabalho Focado, o autor e professor Cal Newport discorre sobre o impacto da era digital. Em vez de argumentar que a distração é ruim, ele celebra o poder do seu oposto. Dividindo este livro em duas partes, ele primeiro argumenta que em quase todas as profissões, cultivar uma profunda ética de trabalho produz benefícios enormes. E então apresenta um rigoroso regime de treinamento, composto de uma série de quatro “regras”, que leva sua mente e hábitos a apoiar essa habilidade.

Uma combinação de críticas culturais e conselhos, Trabalho Focado leva o leitor a uma jornada através de histórias memoráveis — de Carl Jung construindo uma torre de pedra na floresta para concentrar sua mente, até um pioneiro em mídia social comprando um bilhete de ida e volta para escrever um livro sem se distrair — e de afirmações pragmáticas e nada frívolas, como a de que os profissionais mais conscienciosos devem abandonar as mídias sociais e que você deveria se acostumar ao tédio.
