Slow Productivity by Cal Newport

Finished reading: Slow Productivity by Cal Newport 📚

Cal Newport’s latest book fits his ongoing theme about slowing down and producing good work. His latest, Slow Productivity, doesn’t disappoint. 

Cal talks about three main aspects of slow productivity: do fewer things, work at a natural pace, and obsess over quality.

The book is structured in a way that makes it easy to digest. There are three main parts; each part starts with a story. Next, Cal translates what it means for knowledge workers and then provides several action items that can help your situation. Finally, he goes into details and attempts to dispel any contradictions. 

If I were to rate the book on a 5-star system:

  • Importance of the topic: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • Structure of the book: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • Actionable Advice: ⭐⭐⭐

If you already follow Cal’s work, especially his podcast, Deep Questions, you’re likely already familiar with the content in this book. I think it was still worth reading.
