What if

I’m currently reading Deep Work by Cal Newport. The core of the book proposes we could have more meaningful work by eliminating distractions.

About 6 years ago, I went without a mobile phone for an entire year. What if I rehashed this experiment? Six years ago, living without a phone was great. However, I don’t think it’s feasible now — with kid.

BUT, What if

  1. Closed all social media accounts, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn.
  2. Simply maintained my personal blog
  3. Simplified my email life by only using 1 email address.

My purpose would be to increase productivity, and to maintain balance between work and family life.

I’m only on page 23. To be continued.
