Most people find themselves defaulting to busywork like email and Slack because there is very little discomfort in that. It is very unambiguous. All we need to do is read what's come our way and find satisfactory answers to that.

Whereas, deep work comes with discomfort. Thinking about a longer term vision, coming up with original ideas, breaking up a high level idea into clear actions. These are all tasks that bring great discomfort with it.

But these are the tasks worth doing. These are the ones where we can really add value. 

Similarly, talking about the weather, about a movie we watched recently, is quite comfortable. 

But talking about something that's really bothering us, talking about our fears, bring with them great discomfort. 

Prioritise the discomfort. 

Only by taking the plunge can we turn it into something comfortable.
