Deep Work #49

This format of answering questions from those that listen to this Podcast provides an intellectual level that provides a place to learn.

An antidote to helplessness and drift

In a year that most of us will agree has been a dumpster fire (2020), Cal’s podcast has been a reality check. There are many things we can’t control, but we can control our intention, where we direct our energy, and how we invest our time. Deciding to live a deep life is, itself, a radical act. That concept alone is worth a weekly listen. But this podcast marries the intention of Deep Loving with do’able tools and techniques that have been researched and workshopped by a genuine method nerd, Prof. Newport. Thank you, Cal, for this labor of love. Long live the Deep Work HQ!

Glad to find this

Just started a digital declutter 11 days ago and while revisiting digital minimalism found the new podcast. Awesome stuff and looking forward to listening to past episodes as I work to combat distractions distress and depression! Loved the deep reset idea from the last episode! Focus on improving myself, encouraging family/friends and positive impact in my community. Thanks!
