I’ve just read Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism again. That’s twice this year. Digital Minimalism is a fantastic book and one that anyone working from home should read. Actually, strike that. Anyone who owns and uses a smartphone should read it.
I am a huge fan of shiny pieces of technology. They enable me to be a freelance designer and the Publisher of Useful Items at Raging Swan Press. That said, too much of a good thing is a bad thing.
If you struggle with the allure of a glowing screen and the unending scroll of doom, read this book. If you sit in front of your computer and get nothing done, read this book. If you want to control the technology in your life instead of vice versa, read this book.
I get nothing for writing this post, and there are no affiliate links in this article. Digital Minimalism is one of a handful of books that have influenced the current “shape” of my life. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
