I look at the list and determine which tasks have the most urgent timeline. If they have a similar level of urgency I start with the task that is of lower interest to me as I find it easier to go from low interest to high interest tasks.
- What do you consider “deep work” and when do you plan it in your daily schedule?
- How do you prevent distractions where you’re working?
- How do you sustain deep work when you have never been able to do so no matter how hard you try?
- What is your work routine? Do you have one?
- Do you find it easier setting the reminder timers or is it better to just do each routine at specific time in the day as my shift are unpredictable and it’s hard to have a set start and end to my day?
I choose whichever task contributes to my most important life goal. For example, I’m about to finish up my Bachelors, so I generally choose schoolwork for my deep work session.
First of all I choose only those tasks that are important for the current professional activities, then I deal with projects that are meant for my final goals.
- What do you do to avoid distractions?
- Is it optimal to break up deep work periods? I understood that people don’t tend to work optimally after about a 45-minute period?

- What’s the best way to balance food, activities and workouts?
- How do you learn to trust yourself and trust others?
- How do I wake up early in the morning every day?
- I would like to know if you have a boss and he is really in a bad mood, how do you handle this?
- Whenever I take a break, I lose track of what my plan was and I get totally lost in shallow activities. How can I deal with this?
- What advantage do you get from deep work?
- How do you find the best time of day to do deep work?
