I found that after I read the book Deep Work by Cal Newport that my successful completion of projects stemmed from my Deep Work habits. Somehow, I had never labeled that habit before reading that book.

Deep work, in contrast to shallow work, is a concentrated effort. I have always broken up projects into little chunks and call it “chunking.” This principle works extremely well for many and you can even set your timer to keep track of time and progress.

Four: Define and delegate rote work. Five: Work with the end in mind. Free upcoming webinar “Working Remotely Through any Economy:”
