Deep Work Clubs: Boost Focus with Social Pressure

Deep Work Clubs: Social Pressure for Focused Productivity

Newport and Huberman discuss the idea of doing deep work alongside others, whether in person or online, as a way to increase productivity and focus. They mention examples such as dissertation boot camps, writers retreats, and working in academic libraries, where the presence of others engaged in similar work creates social pressure and encouragement. Huberman expresses interest in the concept of a virtual deep work club, where participants could log in and work simultaneously, even if they are not in the same physical location. Newport agrees that there is value in this approach and suggests that the sense of community and shared purpose can be highly motivating.
