  1. #61 - Cal Newport

    Everyone talks about wishing they had better focus, while they have one eye on Facebook on their smartphone. We live in an age of distraction and as our relationship with technology becomes symbiotic, it can come with great cost. This week Barry speaks with Professor and Author Cal Newport. Cal is a Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University and one of the most productive researchers working today. He also is a best selling author of no less than five books, as well as having a very popular blog which helps you improve your own focus and study. Cal manages all of this, not in spite of, but because of, a dedication to avoiding distractions like email and social media. In his new book Deep Work he talks about how to improve your focus and do difficult demanding work. Focus is not an innate skill, it is something that can be trained and improved like a muscle.
