Cal Newport often writes about the intersection of human life and technology. In Digital Minimalism, his latest book, he talks about taking control of life in the digital age.
Here are my takeaways:
- Each digital service in your life should serve a purpose.
- Phones are like slot machines. Every time we check our phones is playing the slot machine for a notification.
- Social Media and other low quality leisure should be replaced with high quality leisure.
- Make time for solitude.
