How To Stay Focused

An interview with Cal Newport

Cal Newport


In this interview, Cal Newport argues that focus is the new I.Q. in the knowledge economy and that individuals who cultivate their ability to concentrate without distraction will thrive. He provides practical examples to escape the being caught in the frantic blur of e-mail and social media.


"The ability to focus intensely without distraction is becoming increasing valuable at exactly the same time technologies are driving us to be worse at it. It's a huge opportunity for startups to cultivate concentrated efforts as a way to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace."
