From the bestselling author of Digital Minimalism comes a radical vision of a world without email - a world with increased creativity, productivity and collaboration
You start the day checking your inbox, spend hours fruitlessly triaging the onslaught of requests and information, then when 5:30pm rolls around you realise with crushing stress that you haven't even got to the most important items on your to-do list yet. Sound familiar?
Constant communication has become part of the way we work and we check our bursting inboxes on average every 5.4 minutes. But at what expense?
In A World Without Email, bestselling author 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 of untapped potential. Newport shows us how to completely reimagine and redesign our work without the constant pings of emails distracting us.
Drawing on a fascinating array of case studies and offering practical solutions, this radical book shows us how dramatically reducing email will liberate people to do their most profound, fulfilling and creative work - and much more of it too.
