Today we are talking with Cal Newport and we’re SO EXCITED because his book totally changed our relationship to social media. Cala is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University. In addition to researching cutting­ edge technology, he also writes about the impact of these innovations on our culture. Newport is the author of six books, including the New York Times bestseller, Digital Minimalism, which argues that we should be much more selective about the technologies we adopt in our personal lives, and Deep Work, which argues that focus is the new I.Q. in the modern workplace.

In This Episode We’ll Cover: • What digital minimalism looks like in real life • The ways in which excessive screen time can be harmful • Creating values that are not tied up in productivity or social media • Practical ways to disconnect and tap into your life values & MORE!
