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
- Closed all social media accounts, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn.
- Simply maintained my personal blog
- 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.
