Deep work can be achieved during single or mono tasking. Deep work, as defined by Cal Newport, author of Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World “is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It’s a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time”. Research shows that there’s no such thing as multitasking, our brains can’t do it. Instead we’re just switching from task to task really fast, giving us the allusion of working on multiple things at once. Multitasking can be attributed to a decrease in attention span, increased mental fatigue, and overall less productivity.
