Deep Work

Part of the Teachers Taking Series: Sustainability at Work series

Feeling distracted and driven by your inbox? Hard to carve out time for sustained mental work? Come join us at the next MCTL event focusing on ideas raised in Cal Newport’s book, Deep Work.

Dawn Lonsinger (English) and Sherri Young (Chemistry) will facilitate a session based on Cal Newport’s book “Deep
Work.” As we face increasing distractions in our day to day work, how can we carve out time to engage in the kind of
sustained, meaningful work that inspires us.

We still have 3 copies of the book available….first come, first served. Free of charge for those planning to attend.
Contact Mark Sciutto to receive a copy.

For those who may not have the time or desire to read the whole book, Sherri and Dawn have selected an excerpt to
make available. This excerpt will give you an introduction into some of the issues that will be explored in the session.

Per copyright law and fair use, these pages, limited in number, are made accessible to Muhlenberg affiliates for
educational purposes only, and are not to be further disseminated.

Here is the link to the excerpts.
