EP 39 - Deep Work and your Environment

Imagine a state where you are completely absorbed in your task, pushing your skills to the limit, yet feeling totally in control and exhilarated. That's the power of deep work and flow state. And how often do you actually feel that way?

For most of us, it's hardly ever.

Emails, notifications, the open office layout, it's all ruining our ability to have focus. In this week's episode, Chris and I are going to dive deep into deep work and flow state. We're going to cover what it is, why it matters, and how you can use it to increase your overall productivity, whether you're an individual or an organization.
