              'A presence on the page, Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors' - New York Times 'Cal Newport is a clear voice in a sea of noise, bringing science and passion in equal measure' - Seth Godin, entrepreneur and author of Purple Cow 'A compelling case for cultivati...ng intense focus, and offers immediately actionable steps for infusing more of it into our lives' - Adam Grant, author of Originals on Deep Work Turn off notifications, don't bring your smartphone into the bedroom, check Twitter less often. Chances are you've already heard these tips intended to help control your digital addiction. But they aren't enough. In Digital Minimalism, computer science professor Cal Newport provides a radical new solution to help us embrace and not be enslaved by technology: a 30 day digital detox. Newport explains how to use this offline period to evaluate what we want to use the Internet for so that when we come back online, we spend our time wisely on a small number of carefully crafted activities that connect us to things and people we truly value. With easily implementable tips and practices like replacing web surfing with reading rituals, scheduling when we use digital tools (not when we take breaks from them), never leaving or reading comments on social media, and focusing on creation not consumption, you'll learn how to use and integrate technology into a life well-lived. Read Digital Minimalism and you'll never again sacrifice your productivity to clickbait, or lose 40 minutes of your evening to Instagram.

              In this eye-opening account, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that follow your passion is good advice. Not only is the cliche flawed-preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work-but it can also be dangerous, leading to ...anxiety and chronic job hopping.After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do. Spending time with organic farmers, venture capitalists, screenwriters, freelance computer programmers, and others who admitted to deriving great satisfaction from their work, Newport uncovers the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided in developing their compelling careers.Matching your job to a preexisting passion does not matter, he reveals. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before.In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it.With a title taken from the comedian Steve Martin, who once said his advice for aspiring entertainers was to be so good they can't ignore you, Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto is mandatory reading for anyone fretting about what to do with their life or frustrated by their current job situation and eager to find a fresh new way to take control of their livelihood. He provides an evidence-based blueprint for creating work you love.So Good They Can't Ignore You will change the way we think about our careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.

              Georgetown University professor and popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in one's professional life. In 2012, Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, and began exploring the methods and mindset that ...foster a deep work practice. The concept quickly hit a nerve. Newport's articles on the topic have been read hundreds of thousands of times and were picked up and promoted by other bloggers and traditional media. Now, in DEEP WORK, Newport explains how to systematically train the mind to focus and reorganize our work lives so that deep work is at the core. He argues why this shift is crucial to stay ahead in a complex information economy. Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions we can make in an increasingly distracted world.
