Deep Work Summary: How to Focus amidst a World of Distraction World By Cal Newport #infographic

Newport will be paying special attention to how we treat the vast amount of everyday emails we get hold of every so often. He describes e-mail as an especially insidious form of shallow work, because it "provides you with regular distractions."

In the book he sets out a number of techniques which he uses in dealing with email for my part. Nonetheless, the one that I find most practical and useful to put into action, is his suggestion to "do extra work" when reacting to an email. Here he advises focusing on producing "process-centered" emails instead of catching a quick response that is likely to lead back and forth to a series of similarly lower fashion emails. When writing a procedure centric response to an email, you must deliberately shut down the loop of verbal communication as fast as possible.
