His notion of Deep Work involves being in the most productive state of mind and comes down to four basic rules of assuring that you do “Deep Work”. In the book he outlines possible rules individuals can implementen in their work to be more productive.

One of the rules involves “Plan every minute of your work day”, and is exactly what it sounds. He recommends by using the scientist and professor Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s theory on workflow, that by planning your workday down to the very minute of it, it is possible to obtain unseen levels of productivity. He also emphasizes that the planning itself should not influence the work negatively itself, but when done correctly individuals can seriously improve their productivity in the workplace.  All of this comes from a professor who writes four peer-reviewed scientific papers a year and at the same time wrote multiple best-selling books.
