Day 17: Focused Work

On the 17th day of my 50-Day Life Transformation Challenge, I'm dedicating myself to the topic of "Focused Work," also known as "Deep Work" – immersing oneself in work without distractions.

Some time ago, I wrote about the concept of pseudo work. Pseudo work is work that appears to keep us busy but doesn't actually create value. It tricks us into thinking we're highly productive when, in reality, we're not making real progress.

To engage in Deep Work, we must recognize pseudo work

I've established some fundamental rules for my work, which I will adhere to:

  1. I create a low-distraction work environment.
  2. I set my phone to "Do Not Disturb."
  3. I ensure that calls cannot interrupt me.
  4. I disable the doorbell.
  5. I close my email program.
  6. I turn off all other push notifications on my computer.

I can recommend a good book on this subject: Deep Work by Cal Newport
