    Mani provides us with strategies and tactics to get Deep Work time and how to get our minds into that focused state for hours at a time.





    He has read hundreds of books that have taught him the secrets to getting more done by getting into this state.





    He starts by telling us how he was passed over for a promotion at Qualcomm in favor of someone younger and less experienced and how that inspired him to figure out what the other guy was doing differently. He learned that he needed to get more done with the time he was spending on his projects.





    The trick? Deep Work!





    Deep Work is the ability to spend uninterrupted, focused time on a task to bend your entire mind toward the goal.





    Other developers call it "Flow" or "the Zone."
