Digital Minimalism

So I suppose I’ve become a fan of Cal Newport. This was another very thought-provoking book and, while time consuming to read, was worth the effort of grappling with the complex topics he writes on. While Deep Work focused on more of the logistics behind large, successful professional pursuits, Digital Minimalism is much more focused at transforming our personal / at-home lives into a …deeper experience. One fueled by intentional, depth-based relationships rather than digital networks. Credit to Newport though, where I’ve personally taken more of a ‘totally drop social media’ approach, he does give a nuanced view and approach to utilizing social networks in a very strategic way — one that (ideally) avoids the negatives of the networks while gaining the positives. I’d consider this a fantastic handbook for most people in 2021.
