So how do we accomplish meaningful progress and produce the kind of quality results that come from focus and concentration? According to author and professor Cal Newport, the answer is deep work. Author of the Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller, Deep Work, Newport writes that the ability to focus is becoming an increasingly rare and valuable skill in the modern business world. Deep work is the ability to focus on challenging tasks such that we produce quality results in less time, while experiencing a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
After reading authors like Cal Newport and several others, hereâs my top three picks for building focus and building the ability to work deeply:
Identify and Batch
Identify which parts of your work require deep focus and which do not. Prioritize the work that requires distraction-free concentration, and batch this work into longer, uninterrupted stretches of time. Creating longer chunks of time to focus is important because switching tasks tends to split our attention and drain our focus.
Deep work is hard. Like mastering any skill, deliberate practice is critical. This is the type of practice is methodical, purposeful and structured. Itâs hard, but remember that you can leverage the power of habit to your advantage. The more we focus on focus, the more focus we develop.
Prioritize, Act and Measure
Begin by working towards a small number of highly critical goals (the very act of identifying these goals helps us strengthen our focus in and of itself.) Identify the behaviors and actions that will drive progress towards these goals, and take focused action. Track the actions youâve taken and measure the results to hold yourself accountable for your own focus and productivity.
