Cal Newport is a best selling author, a tenured professor at Georgetown University, and has accomplished more in his 35 years of living than most have the courage to make their goal. In this interview, we dive into the mechanics, the mindset, and the strategy behind eliminating distractions and becoming a peak performer. He breaks down specifically how he approaches planning, why he doesn't have social media accounts, and why the advice to "follow your passion" is horrible advice and what you should do instead.
