A Large Body of Deep Work Gives You a Chance

“Necessary, but not sufficient.” I love that figure of speech. It packs a punch both with validation and responsibility. When you stumble across something that is “necessary but not sufficient” put a pin in it. 

By its own definition, it’s mandatory. And, it calls for more

In my book, Going Right: A Logical Justification for Pursuing Your Dreams the necessary but not sufficient part of a mean making, fulfillment, and resilient life is simple. You need a large body of deep work. 

Having a large body of deep work won’t guarantee success, fulfillment, or a sense of meaning in your life. It is necessary, however. The book goes on to lay down the importance of finding that which you’d have a chance to build a large body of deep work doing. If there isn’t a remarkable commitment and interest level, you won’t work deeply in it and you surely won’t work for long at it. 

If you haven’t stuck yourself in a position to achieve mastery through ten years of not just work but deep work of intense feedback loops and focus, you’ve got one job… 

Find. That. Thing.
