<b>A <i>New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, </i>and <i>USA Today </i>bestseller<br /><br />"Newport is making a bid to be the Marie Kondo of technology: someone with an actual plan for helping you realize the digital pursuits that do, and don't, bring value to your life."--Ezra Klein, Vox<br /><br />Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It's the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.</b><br /><br />In this timely and enlightening book, the bestselling author of <i>Deep Work</i> introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives.<br /><br />Digital minimalists are all around us. They're the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones. They can get lost in a good book, a woodworking project, or a leisurely morning run. They can have fun with friends and family without the obsessive urge to document the experience. They stay informed about the news of the day, but don't feel overwhelmed by it. They don't experience "fear of missing out" because they already know which activities provide them meaning and satisfaction.<br /><br />Now, Newport gives us a name for this quiet movement, and makes a persuasive case for its urgency in our tech-saturated world. Common sense tips, like turning off notifications, or occasional rituals like observing a digital sabbath, don't go far enough in helping us take back control of our technological lives, and attempts to unplug completely are complicated by the demands of family, friends and work. What we need instead is a thoughtful method to decide what tools to use, for what purposes, and under what conditions.<br /><br />Drawing on a diverse array of real-life examples, from Amish farmers to harried parents to Silicon Valley programmers, Newport identifies the common practices of digital minimalists and the ideas that underpin them. He shows how digital minimalists are rethinking their relationship to social media, rediscovering the pleasures of the offline world, and reconnecting with their inner selves through regular periods of solitude. He then shares strategies for integrating these practices into your life, starting with a thirty-day "digital declutter" process that has already helped thousands feel less overwhelmed and more in control.<br /><br />Technology is intrinsically neither good nor bad. The key is using it to support your goals and values, rather than letting it use you. This book shows the way.

<h1><strong>Passive Income Freedom + Free $500 Home Study Course</strong><br /></h1><h2>3 Millionaire Millennials Share Their Online Passive Income Blueprints<br /></h2><p>No experience required to get to $5,000–$20,000 per month in the next 6 months!<br /></p><p>(Foreword by Kevin Harrington from ABC’s Hit TV Show Shark Tank)<br /><br />Book authors include these serial entrepreneurs: Stephen Larsen, Josh Forti, Darik Alexander, JR Rivas, Sonya Lee, Arne Giske, Akbar Sheikh, Chris O’Byrne, David Wolff, Kolton Krottinger, Tracey Wong, William Cheverie, Aaron Janda, April Zarling, Baldeep Chawla, Ed Bordi, Håkon Østerberg, Jason Croft, Javier Lozano, Jr., Johnathan King, Jorge Cruz, Kim Barrett, Manny Talavera, Marcus Guiliano, Phillip Caillavet, Samuel Hodgett, Sema Erzouki, Stephen Hauter, Zach Winsett, James Smiley<br /><br />[Inside this book, you’ll get a secret link to your free $500 Home Study Course with exclusive mentoring lessons from Steve Larsen, Josh Forti, James Smiley and more. No credit card needed, 100% free $500 gift.]<br /></p><p>Only six to eight years ago, most people who wanted to take a message or product to the world had to ask permission (from the authorities, associations, and governing bodies that centralized content distribution). <br /></p><p>But now, because of technology (particularly social media and video), decentralization is everywhere (technology inherently decentralizes). This has empowered everyone with a phone to reach the masses without ever worrying about asking for permission again. <br /></p><p>This book reveals how three millennial influencers did just that and took their message to hundreds of thousands (and sometimes millions) of followers—all without ever asking for “permission.” This is the day when kids make $1,000s doing things adults once mocked with statements like: “keep making that face and it will become permanent,” “When are you going to stop dancing and go get a job,” “Stop playing those video games; like someone’s really going to pay you for that!” <br /></p><p>As more Fortune 500 brands fall by the wayside, people like Steve Larsen, Josh Forti, me, and many other entrepreneurs, many of which are featured in this book, are taking up the baton and running without looking back.<br /></p><p>We are the ones Steve Jobs envisioned when he ran the most famous technology commercial of all-time in 1997: <br /></p><p>Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.<br /></p><p>Thank you, Mr. Jobs… and now to the crazy ones, let’s go get it! <br /></p><p>James Smiley<br /></p><p>(and remember… it’s all about attitude!)<br /></p>

Indeed, as the US-Sino AI competition begins to heat up, Lee urges the US and China to both accept and to embrace the great responsibilities that come with significant technological power. Most experts already say that AI will have a devastating impact on blue-collar jobs. But Lee predicts that Chinese and American AI will have a strong impact on white-collar jobs as well. Is universal basic income the solution? In Lee’s opinion, probably not.  But he provides  a clear description of which jobs will be affected and how soon, which jobs can be enhanced with AI, and most importantly, how we can provide solutions to some of the most profound changes in human history that are coming soon.</DIV>
