BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

People trapped in the dark side of the digital world are not those in the Third World where digital technology has not yet saturated. It is those within our midst who have been silently swallowed by the invisible dark holes of digital technology. This book is about them. And also about you. We are all on the digital journey and must remain eternally vigilant of these dark holes - digital addiction and digital consumerism. There are many digital addicts and digital shopaholics suffering in our midst. You may not even know that you are a digital addict or digital shopaholic. However, don't forget that those on the extreme end didn't start there. They started where you are - but found themselves indulging in the wrong course. This book is there to help you avoid the pitfalls that sucked them. This book begins by illuminating the dark side of our digital world. It explores the dark power of digital technology that subtly yet stealthily seduces people into becoming its unwitting prey. It digs deeper into dark psychology and how it is employed by the digital merchants to achieve their nefarious objectives. The book also digests the unpleasant statistics that are often avoided - how much productive time is lost to digital addiction and how much wealth is lost to digital consumerism. Why digital minimalism? Often, people engage in activities for instant gratification. However, behind this instant gratification lies a high price. Very few people can fathom the darker side of this gratification. And even fewer can fathom the benefits of digital minimalism. This is the main reason that this book unearths not only the many hidden costs of this instant gratification but also the many benefits of avoiding these costs by practicing digital minimalism. While most advocates of digital minimalism warn us of the dangers of digital abuse, very few offer long-term practical solutions. The most common prescriptions are geared towards relieving the symptoms rather than healing the problem. The root cause of digital abuse rests in the mind, and it is where the permanent solution can be established. The quick-fixes cannot offer a permanent solution. Digital minimalism begins in mind. That is the book's motto. Transitioning to digital minimalism is not an easy walk in the park. And it is neither a sprint race. It is a marathon. Careful preparation and a strong foundation have to be established. Crafting the right mindset provides a strong foundation upon which transition is anchored. In this transition process, bad habits have to be identified and killed. Good habits have to be nurtured and practiced. And all these can only be achieved when the right mindset is in place. The book identifies and explains what it means to have a digital minimalism mindset. The biggest loss due to digital addiction is a loss of productivity. Many labor hours are lost due to social media addiction. Many more are lost to digital games. And still, more is lost watching streaming media online. In this book, you will learn not only how to stop this loss of productivity, but also how to use digital technology and its alternatives to boost your level of productivity. Finally, digital minimalism is a lifestyle. It is not just a mindset or a habit - it is a wholesome lifestyle. In this book, you will learn how to make digital minimalism your life-long endeavor. This will ensure that you will continue reaping fruits from your evergreen digital minimalism tree. Grab your copy today to learn to nurture inner peace instead of the turmoil brought on by digital overload.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Despite his much-hyped culpability, Steven Paul Jobs was not devoid of creative vision. It was his sheer aptitude to foresee the future in the perspective of things that contemporaries even did not guess, that had transformed Apple from the darkest corner of a garage to the pinnacle of commercial glory. It is also quite paradoxical that when the maiden iPhone was launched to the inquisitive sight of the larger audience, Steve Jobs was even himself skeptical about the supreme success of the gadget he had brought about. The spur of technological evolution in itself is not intuitively decent or dreadful. The cause of concern is the basic human adaptability with fast-paced technological growth. Saving an exceptional calamitous incident in the offing, the super-fast journey of technological furtherance will proceed to the infinity. In the realm of this reality, the modern rationalist human outlook is gradually disappearing from the philosophical scene of technological affinity, that was originally addressed to serve mankind. This is what the relevant author and computer science faculty at Georgetown University, California viz., Calvin C. Newport speaks about in his much talked about book, Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Read the Wall Street Journal Bestseller for "cultivating intense focus" for fast, powerful performance results for achieving success and true meaning in one's professional life (Adam Grant, author of Give and Take). Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep Work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep-spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there's a better way. In Deep Work, author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. He then presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four "rules," for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill. 1. Work Deeply 2. Embrace Boredom 3. Quit Social Media 4. Drain the Shallows A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, Deep Work takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories-from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind, to a social media pioneer buying a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air-and no-nonsense advice, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored. Deep Work is an indispensable guide to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world.
