Everybody wants to get more done, but we go about it the wrong way.
We think getting more done requires more time. We will put in 80 hours of work a week, getting an abysmal return on investment for the last 20 - 30 hours. We can't elbow grease our way through problems by throwing time at them.
We don't need more time to work. We need to change how we work.
This class, based on Dr. Cal Newport's Deep Work principles, provides the concepts to do just that. Deep Work is all about cutting out the superfluous, unnecessary tasks in our professional and personal life. It will help you focus in on the things you do that provide the most value - to the market, and to your own life.
This is a short primer course with the videos you need to get the basics, and follow up resources if you are curious exploring this deeper.
Don't waste your life working. Work smarter, and provide more value to the world, with Deep Work.
Go from zero experience to making your first melody on the piano or on the computer: While learning some of the basics!

I'm that funky Southern guy who speaks Chinese, works at a startup in Boulder, and wants to change the world.
I have over a decade's experience in public speaking: theatre, improv, film acting, motivational speaking, business pitching, trainings, and workshops. I'm also a writer / blogger / idea guy / video editor / amateur cook / not-so-amateur hiker.
I have helped thousand of students and teachers offline through my current work - and now I'm bringing it to you.
This course was very short, but I'm really surprised about how much useful content it packs in. Well done to the course developer. I'm trying to learn a new piece of piano music and finding it very difficult: I'm over 60 and it's harder to learn things then in my 20's. But having a plan e.g. using rhythmic deep work, and putting the 4 aspects of discipline into practice, makes it seem more attainable. I'm also very impressed that it's possible to learn a new skill in 20 hours - when you assign a reasonable number of hours like that - wow.
It is awesome. I have watched the TED talk long ago and it motivated me to learn many of the skills I currently have!
Exactly what I needed.
Easy to follow. Short, to the point videos. Ending was very motivating.
