What's Blooming - Day 7

There is a book titled Deep Work by Cal Newport that I have listened to recently. It's great for any profession but particularly artists. It talks about getting the mind away from distractions in order to get to a place where deep work will happen. It gives an example of while we work many of us are often pulled away from an important task to answer an email or respond to a notification. When this happens we lose our focus and end up doing shallow work for most of the day. 
I recommend this book for creative people. If you don't have time to read the book there is an audio summary that's only about 20 mins which sums up the content nicely.
