Cal Newport ¿ 9 Read

T feel overwhelmed by it They don't experience fear of missing out because they already know which activities provide them meaning and satisfactionNow Newport gives us a name for this uiet 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 conditionsDrawing on a diverse array of real life examples from Ami. 5 Stars Where we want to be cautious is when the sound of a voice or a cup of coffee with a friend is replaced with likes on a post Read This Book Have you ever told someone in your life you just didn t have enough time in the day to get everything done Have you thought about why that is Maybe look down and see what you ve been doing for the last 5 10 or even 60 minutes Probably scrolling through your phone Sometimes with intention but sadly a lot of the time we are on our phones because of we are boredom or we are addicted and fear FOMOA little background before I get into this book and why it s very important I ve always been into tech I started at a young age went to college and got a Web DevInteractive Media degree and I ve had jobs in Digital Marketing Email Marketing and now Cyber Security I use tech each and everyday so you may be asking why I think this book is so important and uestioning why I agree there is a problem Well because I started to notice it in my own life and around me I d go meet a friend and they d sit there scrolling through their phone while i m trying to talk to them I ve watched family members sit on their phones while we re supposed to be spending time together I looked around my train car the last couple days at 95% of people sat there scrolling through their phones and most of it was social media not work I watch families of 4 go out to eat and all 4 parents and kids are on their phones Why bother going out I know you may thinking well that s their choice and I agree but I personally don t want to lose human interaction to my phone or my time to my phoneother tech Mindless scrolling because I m bored or that I m afraid I m going to miss out just isn t worth my mental health or relationships I also started to recently feel depressive and sad feelings while being on social media It made me feel sad watching others thrive in their life and I felt insignificant in a way The Facebook effect is real and I firsthand have felt it Just remember there was once a time when we didn t have all this tech or phones and we were connected less anxious and we still survived I realize I m typing this on a digital site and it has to be read here but just hear me outDIGITAL MINIMALISM takes us through different steps that you can go through to become a digital minimalist What is one you ask 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 with meaning and satisfactionNewport takes us through almost detoxing yourself from doing tech activities without intention So if you spend 2 hours a day on facebook try taking it off your phone so you can get over the urge of automatically opening it and then set aside specific time to go on it and try to use it with high intention so that you really get something out of it Technology is not good or bad and Cal is actually a Computer Scientist it s so about how we use it and how we can change that to be healthyI personally made a few changes my husband and I do not look at our phones during dinner or any meal together In fact I try to leave my phone in the car or at home as much as I can I put on night mode at night I put my phone farther away at night I turned off almost all phone notifications The next step is to delete some low intention social media appsIf you are ready to take back control of your time and not feel like you need your phone attached to you every second then definitely read this book It s simple but powerful and it has a lot of interesting studiesbackground on technology as a whole I personally love technology it is my job after all but I m ready to use it intentionally then mindlessly and strengthen my human face to face connections rather than hoovering behind a screen I think my neck thumbs and hands will probably thank me too Stone Circles of Britain provide them meaning and satisfactionNow Newport

Digital Minimalism Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World

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 worldIn this timely and enlightening book the bestselling author of Deep Work introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless livesDigital 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'. I badly wanted to like this book I really did Because I have very much enjoyed other books by Cal Newport So Good That They Can t Ignore You and Deep Work Both have inspired me a lot and I have recommended these to others in many occasionsThis book was way below my expectations I m afraid it s not the book it s me The practical value for me was minimal as I have already implemented a lot of things he proposes in the bookAs Cal Newport mentions that he sees the digital minimalism trend gaining momentum I thought this book has the potential to be the bible for this movement But I don t believe that happens because the message in this book is not clear enough There are really no core underlying principles for this digital minimalism philosophy that Cal Newport tries to communicate in this book or he just did a poor job at it I would have expected that he would lay out the laws or principles of digital minimalist at the start of the book and reinforce them through anecdotes in the rest of the book For me there were only loosely related anecdotes where sometimes I scratched my head and thought how is that relevant to this topic This book seems to have identity crisis As Cal himself mentioned at the start of the book he usually doesn t write practical books And this book is neither theoretically coherent nor is it well structured practical book It s somewhere between and it s a shame His research in this topic is very thorough and the examples and tips he offers are actually usefulOne thing that irritated me a little was his dismissive attitude towards blog posts with tips to turn off notifications on your smartphone and then he goes on in the book and does exactly the same thing Of course he also talked about that you need a deeper philosophy to actually make these changes in your life but for me he failed at communicating it clearly enoughOne of the biggest grievances for me was lack of authors understanding of how habits work This book would have been sooo much better when he would have actually connected our harmful digital behaviours with fundamental habit changing theoryIf you would like to get pretty much the same content in a much clearer and practical form I would highly recommend you read Atomic Habits by James Clear and Make Time by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky Former gives a very solid understanding of the psychology behind habit change and the latter gives over 80 highly practical tactics to find better focus and energy in this distracting world

Sh 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 controlTechnology 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. I like the idea in here less is We do not need all the apps and the social platforms He s definitely talking to someone like me here I am not a huge consumer of these platforms mostly this is age related However I listened to his book using audible and some apps have really helped me expand my mind meditation apps and audible are two There is no room in Newport s framework for using smartphones in a good way He s sort of an intellectual luddite I get this and sometimes I think it s easier to draw crisp and bright lines and never walk over them lest you get sucked in but perhaps we need to think about our relationship with our app filled phones before we just swear them off I think the better plan would be to practice radical consciousness when dealing with tech To not walk numbly and dumbly into each platform and let it take our free will

    I've been thinking a lot these days about making deliberate tech choices No one human not even Steve Jobs ever expected technology to invade our lives the way it has Instead keeping us tethered to our tech and pulling that lever became the most popular and obvious way to monetize the Internet and we individuals became not the consumers but the product being sold And instead of cutting ourselves some slack bil
