Cal Newport, Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World
1. Pick your sessions
Choose the sessions and dates you'd like to attend, and we'll send you calendar invites so your deep work time is blocked out. No pesky meetings eat into your work day.
2. Join the Flock
Use the link in your calendar invite to join a Flock. One click and you'll be part of a focus session with other like-minded professionals and our vibrant Flocks facilitators.
3. State your goals
At the start, briefly state what you'll work on in the session to a small group of fellow ‘Flockers’ (or type in the Chat for some of our Flock types). Then it's time to focus and work, in the silent presence of your Flock.
4. Keep your camera on
You’ll be amazed at the effect seeing other people work has on your own productivity. The positive presence of others can make you perform better and helps you focus.
5. Take a break
Deep focus requires a lot of mental energy, so halfway through some of our Flock types - your facilitator will lead a short, fun interlude. This will give your brain and body the right kind of invigoration.
6. Share your achievements
At the end of the Flock share how much of your session goals you got done. Knowing you have to do this is a great incentive to stay focused throughout.
Starting your day by stating intentions and goals makes you more likely to hold yourself accountable to achieve them.
Virtual co-working may feel weird initially! But working silently with a group of people makes you more likely to focus and get your stuff done faster.
Hit your goals
Prioritising time each day to do deep work makes you much more likely to get important and meaningful work done!
Being exposed (virtually) to a diverse group of people can lead to more out-of-the-box thinking.
Without Deep Dives, I'm not sure I would've had the mental space and energy to prepare for a new round of fundraising for my startup. The intention setting and group accountability aspects are incredibly powerful – I exit each session feeling productive and inspired.
COO and co-founder, OLIO
What I get from Flocks: concentration, productivity and… connection! FLOWN has a magic formula that helps me focus, while weaving in moments of connection – wonderful for remote workers. I came straight off the session and messaged my whole 40+ team to recommend it.
Founder, Koru Kids
I love FLOWN and encourage my team to get stuck into the platform. As a team, we use Flocks to focus together and sprint towards progress. It's a no-brainer for me as a business leader because it also improves their sense of wellbeing at work.
FLOWN is perfect to focus on big tasks. I get the headspace to get stuck in without being distracted by calls and emails. I get work done in less time than it would take me previously just by cutting out the distractions. Having that time in my diary means people leave me alone to complete tasks.
Head of Finance
FLOWN has completely changed how I work. A few hours of really meaningful deep work helps me feel like I’m really achieving something. I'm more productive now than I have been for a long time - maybe ever. I am setting and meeting achievable goals, which increases my confidence.

As a developer, I really value being able to block out distractions and work in a focused way for blocks of time. But if you consider FLOWN's commitment to deep work values and the other stuff they do (I find Quests really helpful to switch off), it becomes a really useful platform.
That’s sort of the point. If you don't have time to join Flocks, it means you probably aren't getting time to do your actual work. Flocks aren’t about taking time off – they’re about making time to do the work that’s going to make the biggest difference. We recommend booking sessions in a week or more ahead of time, so your precious deep work time is locked in, and your day isn't eaten up with meetings, calls and emails. In the end, you'll get more done this way.
You don’t have to be if you really don’t want to… but if everybody turned their cameras off it wouldn’t work so well. Actually seeing your accountability group makes a massive difference – it triggers motivation, and puts you under a positive kind of pressure to succeed.
We can relate. But we don’t care, and nor do your fellow Flockers! The pandemic means that everybody is used to people working in messy kitchens or with dogs, kids, and flatmates poking their noses into their meetings. Flocks improve your focus and productivity. Zone out your environment and do some deep work!
Your fellow Flockers are NOT your boss. Flocks are about supportive accountability – so you don’t need a sophisticated presentation in your intentions. On Deep Dive sessions, just talk for a minute about what you intend to get done. The very act of sharing it is scientifically proven to improve your chances of actually doing it. Oh, and we don't do breakout rooms in Power Hour Flocks, so why not try one of those out first?
