The time and attention we spend with our devices are at the core of our digital lives. When we eat too much we get fat and sick. Thus, if we eat too much connectivity, we get distracted and numb. If this happened in a generation, what have we forgot that, eventually, led us to this path? I think it’s our deep values.
According to Cal Newport, the digital minimalist focus his ”online time on a small number of carefully selected and optimized activities that strongly support things you value, and then happily miss out on everything else.” My bold.
Apparently, what we forgot is to keep searching and thinking about what we deeply value in our life. If we spend time clarifying our deep values, I’m sure we’ll find the right balance between our physical and digital life.
