Making technology work for you.
Cal Newport is the author of six books including, most recently, the New York Times bestseller, Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World. His work has been published in over 25 languages and has been featured in many major publications, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, New Yorker, Washington Post, and Economist.
In 2016, he published Deep Work, which argued that our ability to focus without distraction is becoming increasingly rare (due, primarily, to distracting technology), at the same time that it’s becoming increasingly valuable (as the knowledge economy becomes more cognitively demanding). As a result, those individuals and organizations who cultivate their ability to perform “deep work” will enjoy a major competitive advantage.
In his spare time, he’s a professor at Georgetown University
