Shallow work can be done quickly, such as clearing emails that mainly consist of news feeds or non-action-required information—deep work requires thought, time and complete engagement.


This article written by Daniel Lehewych for Allwork makes these points about the concept of deep work:

  • The consequence of too much shallow work is the fragmentation of worker and employer attention spans
  • Deep work can be achieved by:
    • Workspaces where people can work without disruption for several hours at a stretch.
    • Restricting the number of times you look at your email.
    • Completing projects that require you to learn new and complex skills
