two kinds of work

there are two kinds of work:

“Deep work” is using your skills to create something of value. It takes thought, energy, time and concentration.

“Shallow work” is all the little administrative and logistical stuff: email, meetings, calls, expense reports, etc.
.
Shallow work stops you from getting fired — but deep work is what gets you promoted.
