Opening Up to Learning

So, I have decided to study for an Open Degree through the OU.

I will mostly be studying creative writing, which I am hoping will help me to forge a writing career, before I get too old at least.

11: On Analog Social Media – Study Hacks – Cal Newport

The Declutter Experiment

In late 2017, Cal Newport invited his mailing list subscribers to participate in an experiment he called the digital declutter.

The idea was simple. During January 2018, participants would take a break from “optional technologies” in their lives, including, notably, social media. At the end of the 31-day period, the participants would then rebuild their digital lives starting from a blank slate — only allowing back in technologies for which they could provide a compelling motivation.

Cal expected around 40 – 50 people would agree to participate in this admittedly disruptive exercise.

His guess was wrong.
