Digital Minimalism

Digital Minimalism Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology It s the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.In this timely and enlightening book, the bestselling author of Deep Work introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives.Digital minimalists are all around us They re the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones They can get lost in a good book, a woodworking project, or a leisurely morning run They can have fun with friends and family without the obsessive urge to document the experience They stay informed about the news of the day, but don t feel overwhelmed by it They don t experience fear of missing out because they already know which activities provide them meaning and satisfaction.Now, Newport gives us a name for this quiet movement, and makes a persuasive case for its urgency in our tech saturated world Common sense tips, like turning off notifications, or occasional rituals like observing a digital sabbath, don t go far enough in helping us take back control of our technological lives, and attempts to unplug completely are complicated by the demands of family, friends and work What we need instead is a thoughtful method to decide what tools to use, for what purposes, and under what conditions.Drawing on a diverse array of real life examples, from Amish farmers to harried parents to Silicon Valley programmers, Newport identifies the common practices of digital minimalists and the ideas that underpin them He shows how digital minimalists are rethinking their relationship to social media, rediscovering the pleasures of the offline world, and reconnecting with their inner selves through regular periods of solitude He then shares strategies for integrating these practices into your life, starting with a thirty day digital declutter process that has already helped thousands feel less overwhelmed and in control.Technology is intrinsically neither good nor bad The key is using it to support your goals and values, rather than letting it use you This book shows the way.

    If you are ready to make radical changes in your approach to tech in your life, this book is for you It has been life altering in the best possible ways for me I m noticing that the people who aren t ready to make changes tend to get defensive and call Newport a Luddite However, if you almost never use your phone except for making phone calls or don t use social media, you can probably skip it Or if you ve already read other books on the topic, maybe this covers the same ground I haven t If you are ready to make radical changes in your approach to tech in your life, this book is for you It has been life altering in the best possible ways for me I m noticing that the people who aren t ready to make changes tend to get defensive and call Newport a Luddite However, if you almost never use your phone except for making phone ...
