This culture needs Cal Newport!

After buying and reading his last three books and following his blog for years, Cal Newport has come out with a podcast which has everything I wanted and more from the Deep Work guru.

Insightful, Intelligent, Approachable!

Cal Newport has another winner with this podcast. His insights into physician work schedules and reason for burnout in a recent episode were so spot on, that I had to listen to it again and send the clip to colleagues! His suggestion not to overschedule physicians (or indeed any other knowledge worker) is particularly apt during the work from home and virtual visit era. Additionally, the time blocking approach that he suggests has worked wonders for my productivity over the last few months.
As a bonus, it is an absolute delight to hear Cal’s clear voice of reason coming through my headphones as I am getting ready for work in the morning or chilling after my evening shutdown ritual. Absolutely “a must subscribe” if you value your time and get the best information to improve your habits and workflows as a knowledge worker

Episode notes are 👌🏼

Cal’s content is superb, so I’ll listen to him anywhere, anytime. But I’m particularly grateful for the episode notes, so I can scan through the topics covered.
