Inhaltsangabe

Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life: the ability to master distraction.

Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves their attention the most. When Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve. Most of us, after all, are excruciatingly familiar with shallow work instead - distractedly skimming the surface of our workload and never getting to the important part. Newport began exploring the methods and mind-set that foster a practice of distraction-free productivity at work, and now, in Deep Work, he shows how anyone can achieve this elusive state.

Through revealing portraits of both historical and modern-day thinkers, academics and leaders in the fields of technology, science and culture, and their deep work habits, Newport shares an inspiring collection of tools to wring every last drop of value out of your intellectual capacity. He explains why mastering this shift in work practices is crucial for anyone who intends to stay ahead in a complex information economy and how to systematically train the mind to focus. Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions we can make in an increasingly distracted world.

Kritikerstimmen

"Engaging and substantive.... Deep Work accomplishes two considerable tasks: One is putting out a wealth of concrete practices for the ambitious, without relying on gauzy clichés. The second is that Mr. Newport resists the corporate groupthink of constant connectivity without seeming like a curmudgeon." ( The Wall Street Journal)
"Cal Newport is a clear voice in a sea of noise, bringing science and passion in equal measure. We don't need more clicks, more cats, and more emojis. We need brave work, work that happens when we refuse to avert our eyes." (Seth Godin, author of Linchpin)
"As automation and outsourcing reshape the workplace, what new skill do we need? The ability to do deep work. Cal Newport's exciting new book is an introduction and guide to the kind of intense concentration in a distraction-free environment that results in fast, powerful learning and performance. Think of it as calisthenics for your mind - and start your exercise program today." (Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive)
" Deep Work makes a compelling case for cultivating intense focus, and offers immediately actionable steps for infusing more of it into our lives." (Adam M. Grant, author of Originals)

Not for me - or my generation?

The book is well told, the speaker does a great job and it contains some anecdotes.
While from the content side there is nothing in for me.
That you need to set aside some time for thinking and that you shall do this distraction free is not a new concept. It is taught and applied since decades or centuries.
This book is written with a background of twitter, Facebook and other social media. So it probably applies more to a millennial generation.
The core concept nevertheless could have been in a short article like on one or two pages - filling up a whole book is from my perspective a waste of time.
Other people, who are easily distracted by mails and social media might find this book more helpful - if you are not distracted too much during the 7-8hours the book takes.

Highly relevant, very practical

Being in a constant state of distraction has become the new norm of being and of working.

While recent research on multi-tasking has clearly shown how ill-equipped our brains are at handling multiple complex (and even simple) tasks simultaneously, we are still continually being pushed to sacrifice focus and depth for instant accessibility and perceived flexibilty:
Open Office Spaces, expecting immediate responses to emails and the increasing taboo against defining clear times in which one does not wish to be interrupted. All of this has been shown to not only decrease productivity but also to decrease work place satisfaction and increase stress.

This book makes a clear case for why deeply focused, uninterrupted work is becoming more and more valuable in todays information economy, where there is a premium on highly complex work that is produced efficiently.

Since this focused approach is becoming increasingly rare and harder to implement, those who manage to adopt it stand to gain a tremendous competitive edge. Even more significantly, deep work binds in nicely with the concept of "flow", which has been shown to increase work- (and life-) satisfaction.

Cal Newport builds his arguments on success stories, practical examples and personal experience. He also provides a clear framework for how to implement the necessary changes to your work routine and environment.

I read and listen to plenty of books on the subject of productivity and self-development and Cal Newports books stand out very clearly above the rest. There is no unnecessary "fluff" and padding in his works, just clear arguments and practical advice. I also highly recommend his other book, "So good they can't ignore you".

Too many words for a brief message

Interesting topic, but presented in a boring and too lengthy way. Keeping the topic focused, would have helped. 1/3 of the book would have remained and would have been enough.

Unnötig und leider auch ein bisschen verlogen

Hier schreibt ein Blogger gegen seine eigene Profession an. Alles online ist per Definition schlecht. Email, Social Media und online generell wird sehr einseitig nur als Störung dargestellt.

Lieber Cal Newport, wie sind Sie eigentlich bekannt geworden?

Darüber hinaus viel zu langatmig und der sog Praxisteil verspricht leider viel und löst die Versprechen nicht ein.

Die Botschaft an und für sich ist goldrichtig (lasst Euch nicht ständig ablenken) hätte aber viel besser verpackt werden können.

Wertvolle Impulse!

Ich bin begeistert. Dies ist mehr als Zeitmanagement. Für mich mehr Lebensphilosophie. Großartig die Ideen zu Selektionsworkflows von Anfragen. Ich setze die Anregungen zu Deep Work und die dazugehörigen Aspekte schon um. Super Ergänzung zu Senecas “Von der Kürze des Lebens“: “Du hast genug Zeit. Wenn du sie nicht vergeudest“.

Best Self-Organizing Book in a while

loved 'so good they can't ignore you' but this one is really stripping down how to maintain a powerful work environment and ethic of deep work and questioning learned well established habits of shallow work in times of constant interconnectedness. shows own examples of applying and progress and mentions the deep work ethic of ultra high achievers like Bill Gates. what a gem. straight edge stuff instantly to adopt. keep u updated!

Zu viele Beispiele für eine einfache Botschaft

Würden Sie dieses Buch einem Freund empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?

Nein, eine Zusammenfassung würde die Kernbotschaft genauso übermitteln.

Würden Sie sich wieder etwas von Cal Newport anhören?

Wenn die Bücher vergleichbar sind, nein.

Wenn dieses Hörbuch ein Film wäre, würden Sie ihn sich ansehen wollen?

Nein

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es werden sehr viele Beispiele für die Kernbotschaft gegeben, die sich in einem Kapitel hätte zusammenfassen lassen können. Um "Rules" geht es m.E. nur nebensächlich. Sie werden erwähnt und ausgeschmückt, allerdings bringen sie nicht den Mehrwert, den man sich erhofft.
