A note about Deep Work:
On one hand, we have the deep thinker – completely solo and isolated from innovation. On the other hand, we have the collaborative thinker in an open office, flush with inspiration from others.
The best thing is to have both. Rhythmic deep work sessions (3-4 hours per day) and spend the rest of the day working with others, meetings, chatting, etc.
Having the ability to do both opens doors.
