A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestseller "Newport is making a bid to be the Marie Kondo of technology: someone with an actual plan for helping you realize the digital pursuits that do, and don't, bring value to your life."--Ezra Klein, Vox 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 more 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.… (mere)

The tycoons of social media have to stop pretending that they’re friendly nerd gods building a better world and admit they’re just tobacco farmers in T-shirts selling an addictive product to children. Because, let’s face it, checking your “likes” is the new smoking.

[b:Digital Minimalism|40672036|Digital Minimalism Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World|Cal Newport|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1549433350l/40672036._SY75_.jpg|63988240] makes a strong claim that modern smartphones and social media are every bit as addictive and dangerous as any number of more well known drugs and that we'd be well put to cut out or at least drastically reduce the amount of digital 'clutter' in our lives.

It's not actually a terrible idea and it actually gave me the push I needed to change a fair few things about how I use technology. I'd already deleted Twitter and Facebook from my phone months ago and only check them on my computer for no more than one time / ten minutes a day (if that). But I still found myself spending far too much time on Reddit and watching YouTube on my phone, as well as on digital card games such as Hearthstone and Eternal. So away went all of those as well.

That being said, while the idea is actually pretty nice, the book itself is fairly week. There are long anecdotes about various famous people with various ideas about solitude, many of which just don't seem practical in the modern world, not without being a pre-made millionaire. Often I found myself wondering: why is this section even here. And even the good points get made over again. Despite 1/3 of the book being made of notes (when it ended before 70%, I was surprised...), it could have been shorter.

That being said, if you find yourself spending entirely too much time on a phone or particularly scrolling through the same Facebook (etc) newsfeed over and over again... give this a read. Perhaps it will help.

Aside: The section on Amish culture and the comparison to the Mennonites was pretty interesting, if a bit lengthy. I should read more about them, it sounds like an interesting philosophy.

The problem is not electricity; it’s the fact that the grid connects them too strongly to the world outside of their local community, violating the Amish commitment to the biblical tenet to “be in the world, but not of it.” ( )

Provides a solid, principled approach to paring down one's reliance on online communities, software, games, as well as cell phones and similar time sucks. I had started down that road some years ago after reading Sherry Turkle's [b:Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age|24612127|Reclaiming Conversation The Power of Talk in a Digital Age|Sherry Turkle|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1435359741l/24612127._SY75_.jpg|44223191], and more in the intervening years, but this filled in a few holes and introduced me some useful tools and techniques.

I'd have rated this higher except for what everyone in my book club (we are all software industry folks) agreed was an annoyingly smug and superior tone. I think we are told four or five times that the author has never had a social media account of any kind. One of the later chapters is how to set limits when you engage with social media if you can't/won't avoid it completely. This felt very much like "Here's how to use social media if you absolutely have to, you schmuck."

Oh well, unless you think that'll make you throw this through a window, it's probably worth reading. ( )

Cal Newport takes a long look at our screen addictions and what it's doing to our collective psyches. To his credit, he does devote a good amount of the text to suggestions for how to keep this addiction in check. The book gets 3 1/2 stars from me because much of this material I already understood (the NYT has covered a lot of this over the years), and it seems a bit padded. That said, there is a lot here for anyone who is a novice to the concept that our digital life is harming us in ways we often have not understood. I removed myself from social media at least 10 years ago because I felt it wasn't a good use of my time and I was beginning to judge others - and all for what? A peek into the lives of people I barely knew? Basically, he's saying that we need to get out more and have face-to-face interactions and re-learn how to engage with the physical world. This leads to a richer lifestyle. I certainly agree. This is an area I have long been interested in, as I have seen people more and more attached to their phones and anxious when the phone was out of reach. For someone who has lived most of my life without a cell phone, the need for constant access seems bizarre. I have also been reading lately about increases in anxiety and depression among young people, and the ties to social media. So the book has some value. I'm certainly glad to have read it. ( )

It’s been a while since I took a good look inward at my social media habits. This book forced me to do that - and I didn’t like what I saw.

To list out what Cal mentions about social media addiction is basically just looking in the mirror for me and many people. We pick our phones to fill time, creating a loop of services that provide us with variable rewards that keep us coming back for more.

He’s careful to say that social media (or any service that we mindlessly consume) isn’t bad, but our relationship with it can be unhealthy.

One thing that stuck with me was the idea that all that time spent makes it feel like we’re connected to people, but in reality we aren’t. It’s time away from building real friendships and growing real relationships.

After reading this I immediately decided to do my own 30-day digital declutter. 4 days in now and I’ve already stopped checking my phone constantly - although that’s mostly because every app is organized and I’ve written Goodreads reviews for everything I’ve read. Looking forward to seeing where this goes next. ( )

Like a lot of people I know, I spend way too much time compulsively checking my twitter feed or my email or reddit or discord or any one of the several social book sites. I'm in twitter before I even get out of bed. And that's not setting myself up for a happy morning, to be sure.

I've been thinking about how I use various sites and my phone quite a bit. Particularly since I've been adding more analog entertainment (crafting and reading with my eyeballs) into my schedule. This book found me at the right time.

There's a lot of dry info in here but if it's something that you're genuinely interested in, the time investment is well worth it. I've already cleared off my phone AND had an actual conversation with a friend - USING MY VOICE! I know, it's a little scary but it felt pretty good.

I won't be doing the 30 day purge or anything like that, but I will be taking some of the advice and practices with me. ( )
