LATEST EPISODE

Most of us know that addiction to digital tools is costing us both productivity and peace. But giving them up completely isn't realistic. We're addicted to texting, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter not because we're stupid or shallow, but because they provide real value in the form of connection, community, affirmation, and information. In this episode we dive into Cal Newport’s philosophy and plan for a mindful, intentional use of technology that maximises its benefits while minimising its drain on our attention, focus and time.
