Is digital declutter for you?
A very personal journey
|Dec 8, 2020||2|
Last week, I told you about why I am radically downsizing my digital clutter and digital commitments— to reclaim my time and attention. But, is digital declutter for you?
Below are five things I thought were worth sharing this week:
Is digital declutter for you? Digital declutter is a very personal journey. Everyone finds different aspects of the digital world overwhelming and stressful, if at all. In this post, I share three ideas to determine if digital declutter is for you: pay attention, identify your top offenders, and visualize your ideal uncluttered digital space.
I read a while back Cal Newport’s book Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in Noisy World. Read it for inspiration to use technology with more intention and purpose. “Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones.” —Evening Standard
I watched Are You Up for a Digital Declutter? by Cal Newport. In this 8-minute video, Newport explains why you need to go all-in if you want to redefine your relationship with personal technology.
A quote I have been pondering: “The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it” by Henry David Thoreau. What is our digital clutter costing us?
This is what Emily McDermott learned from a digital declutter: “The answer to lightening your load isn’t more square footage, a fancier gadget, or being ‘better’ at organizing your stuff. It isn’t hiding in a shiny new storage unit, an online shopping cart, or colour-coordinated bins. It’s found by looking closely at what takes up your space, energy, and time and offloading what you no longer need to make room for the life you want- and deserve.”
That’s all for this week!
