A deep life is a good life.
This simple concept, the foundation of Cal Newport’s great book, Deep Work, can have a profound impact on how you work and live.
I deploy a variety of strategies that help me to better structure my time and work environment in a manner conducive to long periods of focus. In addition, I’ve benefitted greatly in this effort from a few smart technologies (ironic, given that so many of the distractions in our life are technology-driven).
Below, a list of the resources I use to help me go — and stay — “deep.” Some of these tools I pay for, some are free. All have had a material impact on my ability to get focused, stay focused and do hard work.
I hope that they are similarly useful to you.
