How to declutter your digital belongings

How to declutter your digital belongings

This should not be a gradual process. Instead, a rapid transformation is a better process of digital decluttering. Here is the step-by-step process of decluttering provided by Cal Newport:

Put aside 30 days to take a break from technologies that are not essential.

Use these 30 days to learn new skills, activities and behaviors that you find meaningful.

At the end of the break, you can start reintroducing technologies by starting with your blank slate.

For each technology you reintroduce, you must determine the value it serves in your life and how you will maximize this value.

Master solitude

Cal Newport explains that technology reduces the time you spend alone with your thoughts. Avoiding others’ minds intruding on your own is crucial for effective solitude. Solitude also requires you to move past reacting to information created by other people. Instead, you must focus on your own thoughts and experiences.

1. You will realize you are better able to establish new ideas

2. You will develop a better understanding of the self

3. You will obtain a closeness with others that you previously were unable to obtain.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
