Deep Work by Cal Newport
Several strategies for deeply working:
- Sabbatical for days
- Regular schedule e.g. Just mornings.
- Attempt to squeeze it in blocks of 90 minutes
Unconscious thought theory. Can you really solve hard problems unconsciously? Does type 1 thinking have non primal uses?
Evenings are sacred. No work or work email.
General distractions like waiting in line and micro checking random stuff. How to avoid it?
Roosevelt dashes: Deep work sessions: schedule in time blocks that are completely distraction free: no email, social media etc.
Suggests not using social media at all. I like the idea but want to still read articles from there. Probably get a twitter to rss thing?
