There is no question that we are increasingly committing ourselves to digital use. The fact is that our use of digital technology has presented us with some opportunities never before available in the history of mankind. But that doesn't mean it doesn't pose a very serious threat to our sanity and well-being.

Today, I talk with repeat guest, Cal Newport, to talk about some of those threats and, more importantly, how we harness the power of digital technology while minimizing the risk that inherently comes with it. We talk about the philosophy of digital minimalism, why you ought to consider a "digital de-clutter," how to keep from losing control to technology, and how to minimize digital use while maximizing your life.

CAL NEWPORT

Gentlemen, today I have the honor of introducing you to my friend and repeat guest, Mr. Cal Newport.

Cal is an MIT graduate and a professor of computer science at Georgetown University and, in addition to that, he is extremely interested in the intersection of technology and society.

I know many of you have read his books, including, So Good They Can't Ignore you, Deep Work, and his latest New York Times Bestseller, Digital Minimalism.

I've been fascinated with his work since I first read, So Good They Can't Ignore you. In fact, many of his theories and ideas have been used in my life to build this movement, Order of Man. I'm not sure I would have had so much success with the organization without incorporating some of his ideas, including the ones he'll be sharing with us today.
