A World Without Email
How much more would you achieve if you weren't drowning in email? And how much happier would you be?
Constant communication has become a key part of work today and we check our bursting inboxes on average every 5.4 minutes. But at what expense?
The bestselling author of Deep Work and Digital Minimalism, Cal Newport, argues that this steady flow of distractions disrupts us from achieving any meaningful work, causes us undue stress and is costing businesses millions in the form on untapped potential. Newport offers a radical vision of a world without email - a world with increased creativity, productivity, collaboration and calm.
Drawing on sociology, behavioural economics and fascinating case studies of thriving, email-free companies, Newport explains how this modern tool doesn't work for our ancient brains, why email is making us miserable and unproductive, and shows us how to transform and redesign workflow without the constant pings of emails distracting us.
This revolutionary books offers practical solutions you can implement today, and shows you how dramatically reducing or abandoning email will liberate you to do your most profound, fulfilling and creative work - and be happier too.
