Digital Minimalism | Scott H Young - Deepstash
Digital minimalism

This philosophy is guided by the idea that we should be in control over what kinds of media we consume, not have our habits dictated to us by technology.

This applies to the office as well as to the home: Having deep work at the office, but digital addictions at home, is hardly a victory.

Instead of defaulting into the low-quality obsessions that leave us wondering where the time has gone, we should cultivate high-quality hobbies that lead to lasting satisfaction.

Re-evaluate your relationship to technology:
  • First allow for a period of abstinence.
  • Follow this by a selective re-introduction of only those tools and technologies that pass a more rigorous cost-benefit analysis than you typically impose.

It is probably not possible to safely evaluate your media consumption, while you’re in the midst of it. Steppring away for a month may be necessary to see your habits objectively.
