So Good They Can't Ignore You by Cal Newport

Notes

  • The trick to having a great career is not to follow your passions but instead to get really good at something. People like being good at things, and once you are you can leverage that career capital into a career you love (more flexibility, for example)
  • Deliberate practice doesn’t happen by accident, isn’t enjoyable, and doesn’t let you get into flow. But it’s the only way to keep improving.
