Philosophy of Purpose

October 8, 2020

During this time of social media detoxing, I've begun reading the book Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport. I'm still only in the beginning, but the book portrays a philosophy of how less can be more when it comes to social media usage. There's power in focused times of effort as the book provides a framework of how you can gain your attention back and build purposeful habits.

While I still have a lot to learn, I believe forming a philosophy around digital usage is a key to make this detox last beyond 30 days. These amazing tools provide a lot of value but also a lot of distraction, and there needs to be something deep inside of me that has a clear vision of how I approach using these tools; otherwise their intelligence will compromise my will power and habitual abilities.
