Just started reading Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism and it sounds a lot like @PatrickRhone so far.
“I’ve become convinced that what you need instead is a full-fledged philosophy of technology use, rooted in your deep values, that provides clear answers to the questions of what tools you should use and how you should use them and, equally important, enables you to confidently ignore everything else…I call it digital minimalism, and it applies the belief that less can be more to our relationship with digital tools.”
from “Los Lunas”
“I can fix anything except for me. It’s easy.”
If you are a sales rep for a vendor and use the phrase “circle back” with me in a conversation we are probably finished with that conversation.
“The illiterates of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” — Alvin Toffler

Brennan Manning in The Ragamuffin Gospel:
“When I get honest, I admit I am a bundle of paradoxes. I believe and I doubt, I hope and get discouraged, I love and I hate, I feel bad about feeling good, I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I am trusting and suspicious. I am honest and I still play games. Aristotle said I am a rational animal; I say I am an angel with an incredible capacity for beer.”
I would only add: “…and sushi. Lots of sushi.”
Maybe its finally time to kick Instagram to the curb: 9to5mac.com/2018/12/2…
