The book that inspired me to start writing again:

Deep Work (by Cal Newport) —Good book, great argument about why “Deep work” is increasingly rare and increasingly valuable in today’s world. Lots of ideas about how to to maintain and encourage deep work, which is just another way of saying “intentional, engrossing effort on some problem or project”. Cause obviously that’s where you learn the most — when your concentration is deep, and it physically hurts to be interrupted. It inspired me to quit Facebook for a month — which was surprisingly easy…while I’m back on occasionally, it broke me of the habit of checking Facebook a couple times an hour. Also got me much more enthusiastic and intentional about scheduling my work time AND my leisure time. Good results so far — a morning and evening routine, including exercise and journaling. Highly recommended — reach out if you want details.
