Great Reads Book Club - Deep Work


The Book: Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World

By: Cal Newport

One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. If you master this skill, you'll achieve extraordinary results.

Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep-spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there's a better way.

Challenge your assumptions about business or project management. Learn with peers in the PM field. Earn PDU’s doing something you love - reading on your own time and schedule. Join us in this flexible, interactive book club!

Purchase the book on Amazon to read in the weeks before the meetup and/or review an online book summary to capture the key elements that will be discussed and debated among your peers.
