It's always been a part of our human nature to be attracted to the shiny, new and exciting.

At its core, Newport says that deep work requires a deliberate practice regimen of uninterrupted time to achieve mastery in a particular area be it an instrument or sport. In addition, he says the ultimate measure of success is not just if your deep work led to success but if you craved more of it.

This is the best audiobook that I have ever listened to. It's only around 5 hours long and it is worth every minute.
