75. Deep Work & The ONE Thing

Sep 21, 2017 | 0 comments

The ONE Thing is about what you work on – Deep Work is about how you work. We know that many of you are huge fans of Cal Newport and his book, Deep Work. That’s why we sat down with him to discuss how you can strengthen your focus muscle, so your productivity goes through the roof. We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions.
