Deep Work-One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. If you master this skill, Deep work doesn’t mean you work all day. Deep work is the ability to prioritize things at first thing in the morning (if you are a morning person) completing the work by setting a time and then taking a break.
There’s an app called Pomodoro which clearly defines the objectives of the deep work. The app does allocate the time to work (which you set priority) generally it would be 25 minutes and then you take a – 5-10 min break and then you continue to work. This lest you keep all the distractions away. And focus mainly on high-priority work.

As this would make more sense to keep the focus on but it would be very tough at this day & age as the focused mind doesn’t come easy especially if you don’t meditate daily.

And then in 2nd part writer presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four “rules,” for transforming habits and minds to support this skill.
