You need to start this habit ASAP
I should've started it at least a year ago
I wanted to share with you a new habit I've started this year. As our agency has been growing, it's been harder for me to focus on one particular task at a time. My job has become chiefly the managing and delegating tasks to my team, and I've missed the feeling of "putting in the hours" to crack difficult and new challenges. I also procrastinated on many small tasks because I had to do them and there was no one to delegate them to.
But then, towards the end of December last year, I heard about a concept called "deep work." I wanted to start slow, so I decided to dedicate at least 45 minutes of my time in the office to work deeply. This means no phone calls, texts, or conversations with teammates - just some Lofi music and getting things done.
I have to say, it feels so fulfilling to finish a lot of small tasks that have been pending for a while, thanks to deep work. Now I am learning more about it by reading the book "Deep Work" by Cal Newport. I plan to write a summary of the book in detail after completing it in this newsletter.
So, what do you think? Are you curious to try out deep work in your own work? Let me know in the comments or drop me an email.
