The difference between a bomb and a rocket is that a rocket is a focused bomb-blast!
Such an apt metaphor for deep work.
Being busy is like being a bomb. Being laser-focused on 1 thing for a significant time is like being a rocket. All your energy, intensity and thought power geared to move one thing forward.
Begin with baby-steps like 25-minutes and build to 90-minute power blocks.
The best time I’ve found is at the beginning of my workday, every day.
PS: Rohan Ganapathy, in EP9 explained this. It’s a worthwhile interaction.
