A fascinating thought that ties together threads from so many books, blogs and discussions.
Productivity ninja, getting things done, deep work, the organized mind, finding flow, the critical thinking lectures, zen to done, peak performance, black box thinking. Only now do I realise that in their own way, all of them are tackling this question.

In our "always connected" modern world some people seem to delight in pointing out how good they are at multitasking.

Last night Dhru Shah, the CEO of Dentinal Tubules came to Exeter to explain the new CPD system coming into effect in January. I had previously seen the headlines of the changes such as “no more non-verifiable CPD”, “100 hours verifiable CPD over 5 years” and “personal development plan”. Dhru really helped to clarify exactly what this will mean come next year and if I’m honest it is more complex than I thought it was. The video above explains a little about how you can build and track your personal development plan.
The Dentinal Tubules team have really put a lot of effort into getting this all built into the functionality of their site and their study club community. Now more than ever I think my Tubules membership is really going to be great value for money.
