Is digital declutter for you?
A very personal journey
Last week, I told you about why I’m radically downsizing my digital footprint 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:
Digital declutter is a very personal journey. Everyone finds different aspects of the digital world overwhelming and stressful, if at all. In is digital declutter for you, I share three ideas to determine if digital declutter is for you, including paying attention, identifying your top offenders, and visualizing your ideal uncluttered digital space.
I read Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in Noisy World a while back. It is a good starting point for inspiration to use technology more intentionally and with purpose.
I watched Are You Up for a Digital Declutter, a 8-minute video by Cal Newport where he explains why you need to go all-in if you want to redefine your relationship with personal technology.
A quote I want to share with you this week:
The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.
— 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 is all for this week!
