Distraction, anxiety and Deep Work: Professor Cal Newport

When was the last time you were bored? For many people, not an easy question to answer. Why? The ubiquitous use of smartphones.

Professor Cal Newport is the author of two seminal books, Deep Work and Digital Minimalism. In this episode he explains what Deep Work is and why it's important, and why our inability to find it is making us anxious and less effective. Smartphone use is a big factor - so if you think you use your phone more than you would like to, this episode is a must listen.

The full length episode, with ways to recover your capacity for Deep Work and a calm disposition, is number 50 in the back catalogue.
