How to Easily Get into the Groove of Deep Work
“Focus Sprints” will change the way you “do” focus.
I like to use a method called “Focus Sprints” to get into the groove of Deep Work.
The concept is simple: work distraction-free for 90 minutes straight, followed by a 20-minute break.
Rinse and repeat.
Focus Sprints, step by step:
Set a realistic 90-minute goal
Break down the time into bite-sized tasks
Turn off and get away from all distractions. Close your email. Turn off notifications. Close your door. Shut out the noise
Set a timer for 90 minutes and go
Once the sprint is complete, rest (undistracted) for 20 minutes
Repeat as many times as possible
