What is Deep Work?

According to Cal Newport, the creator of this concept, deep work approach that involves attaining maximum concentration to complete a task from start to finish. In this way, the cognitive abilities of the individual engaged in deep work are at their peak.

Deepening in a task, as opposed to the usual shallowness to which we often accustom ourselves: mindlessly responding to emails, skimming through readings, and succumbing to any distraction.

Four basic rules of Deep Work

Cal Newport outlines four rules for practicing deep work. While the implementation may vary, they serve as a useful guide for those interested in integrating this approach into their work routine.

Deep work sessions

This means scheduling uninterrupted blocks of time where you can fully dedicate yourself to a task. During these periods, all distractions, especially digital ones, must be eliminated.


Not all tasks require the same level of concentration. To work effectively, identify which tasks require deep work and which one can be done with a lower level of concentration (shallow work). This way, you can plan your time, avoiding exhaustion and wasting deep work periods on tasks that don’t require it.

Plan your week

At the beginning of each week, plan your full focus sessions, considering your other responsibilities and obligations. It can also be helpful to pre-plan what you’ll do during each session.

Work smarter, not harder

Minimize the time dedicated to shallow work tasks and avoid distractions that interrupt your deep focus work. For example, you can set up automated email responses, limit time spent on social media, or even establish “Internet blocks” to resist the temptation of web browsing.

An effective way to optimize this rule is by relocating your work to an environment conducive to concentration, such as Lexington’s workspaces.
