With every app just a button away (or say, a thumbprint away), it is so easy to download an app, play around with it for a while and integrate it into our daily lives, if there is some utility or entertainment value.
Our attention is controlled by the apps we choose to download and the only way we can take charge of our attention (spans) is through digital minimalism.
A Chef doesn’t use a single kitchen tool. There is always a set of tools, for different purposes, that are deployed as part of the cooking process. A writer will need multiple tools that will aid the writing process, by removing the friction points. But as long as we are aware of where each tool is coming in, doing its job and adding a value to the creative process, I think it is fine to have as many tools as your process needs.
Minimalism is not about having less. Minimalism is about having just the right number of things, that minimize the friction.
