I have been influenced by Cal Newport’s writings and am a big fan. Cal advises us to do deep work and one practice he follows that is relevant to his career is to try understanding complex research papers in his field.

So I have set myself a similar challenge to stretch my cognitive skills, to read through relevant research and industry white-papers of interest and see if I can summarise their core messages within a single page. I want to use this to challenge myself to be more effective in learning concepts and if I could simplify them for readers – I hope you find it useful.

I am following the process set by S Keshav on reading papers [1]
