1/ Shallow Work: Non-cognitively demanding, logistical-style tasks, often performed while distracted. These efforts tend to not create much new value in the world and are easy to replicate. 👎

2/ Deep Work: Professional activities performed in a state of distraction-free concentration that push your cognitive capabilities to their limit. These efforts create new value, improve your skill, and are hard to replicate. 👍

3/ From Cal Newport’s book Deep Work. Unfortunately, most of our work environments are optimized towards shallow work.
