Cal Newport is the author of some phenomenal books that work together to form a great trilogy:

  • So Good They Can’t Ignore You highlights how skills are far more important than passion and emphasises the importance of developing ‘career capital’ in order to get a job that you allows you to enjoy what you do and make an impact
  • Deep Work shows us that the best way to develop that career capital is to block out chunks of uninterrupted time to focus and work hard on important projects and skills
  • Digital Minimalism sheds light on the dangers of being constantly connected and how carefully stepping away from technology overload can allow you to do more deep work, which allows you to develop career capital, which allows you to take that next step in your career.
