Cal Newport: Cultivating a Deep Life Mindset

Article 📃
Table Of Contents

Create a plan to amplify things that matter and reduce things that distract you (from your values). The right Mindset is as important as the plan. A well-designed checklist means nothing if you're switching between stress and distraction.

  • As Cal says, "Going deep" means "Do less, Do better, and Know why."
  • Doing less means to 'slow down.' Focus on one activity. (Do less TOTAL activities.)
  • Doing better means focusing energy on quality activities.

Knowing why means you get to work from the core of your values. First, find your "why" then work backward to define the work you do.

Finally, "deep life" is not a goal to reach for, but a state of being.
