it was amazing

Everyone needs to read this book especially since most of us are knowledge workers but have no idea how to carve out time for doing deep meaningful tasks and always putting time into the short useless ones.

Insights:

Stop working after a certain time but make that a ritual.
Have a plan for your leisure so you aren’t thinking about work
Time not thinking about work is good for when you need to work deeply and critically on something
Schedule shallow work into your schedule it needs to be done
Schedule ritual for deep work. Where you go, what you do, etc.
