Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport.
Cal Newport is already Professor and has done lots of research work. His job requires him to do do. Like mine (Faculty in Indian Institute of Technology). We need to have undivided attention on research and other works. It has become my main point to know the background of the author before reading any book (it helps)!!
I read this book in March 2019, when I was struggling to reduce my time spent on social media and wanted to focus on my research work. Things are liked out this book:
- It exposes our addiction on social media by means from the point of evolution.
- Ignorance is truly bliss sometimes, means if we use social media in a controlled way it helps us to focus on tasks which will help in our growth.
- It is not our fault we are glued to screens, engineers and behaviour scientists are paid lots of money to keep our eyeballs glued to their app. There are machine learning algorithms running behind the screen to push us towards targeted ads and stickier content.
- How come our ancestors didn’t have Instagram, Wassapp and Facebook and they lead a happy life ! Now we have become slaves of someone else approval on digital media.
- The point is to focus on few things which we value instead of being online all time in social media. It drains our energy.
- In the end “Your time = Their Money“ and Social media is the new smoking
- There are so many apps available in AppStore, it does not mean we need to use every app to find some meaning in life.
- My rating: 5/5 and good book for students.
