    Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life: the ability to master distraction. Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves their attention the most. When Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve.

    Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto flies in the face of conventional wisdom by suggesting that it should be a person's talent and skill - and not necessarily their passion - that determines their career path. Newport, who graduated from Dartmouth College (Phi Beta Kappa) and earned a PhD from MIT, contends that trying to find what drives us, instead of focusing on areas in which we naturally excel, is ultimately harmful and frustrating to job seekers.

    La capacité qui revêt le plus de valeur dans notre économie se fait de plus en plus rare. Celui qui la développe se donne les moyens d'accomplir de grandes choses. Le travail en profondeur, ou deep work, désigne une activité professionnelle menée dans un état de concentration absolue qui pousse nos capacités cognitives jusqu'à leurs limites. Ces efforts créent de la valeur, affinent nos compétences et sont difficiles à reproduire. En d'autres termes, le travail en profondeur est comme un superpouvoir dans notre économie toujours plus concurrentielle.
