Nice post, Herbert.

In essence, you're practicing a version of deep work that works for you. Cal writes about elite performers who avoid social media (like Malcolm Gladwell), but also of people who chunk their shallow work (Adam Grant, Ryan Holiday). Nowhere does deep work mean locking ourselves in batcave for months. That's like taking the concept of deep work too literally and diluting it, just like most people have done with Inbox Zero.
