This year, the Honors Lit class read Cal Newport’s book on becoming a better student. It was a very useful read and we recommend any and all students to peruse its pages before going off to university. We’d also like to direct your attention to this article, which is based on Cal Newport’s best seller Deep Work. It is a complete, actionable guide to changing your productivity habits by picking a work schedule that works for your situation, blocking out distractions, and prioritizing tasks (leading measures) that move you forward. If you’re intrigued by the information in the article, Tommy can personally recommend reading Deep Work in its entirety.
