The Link Between Attention, Elite Performance and Happiness with Cal Newport

Along with the many useful and constructive benefits of technology, we need to be mindful of the vices that come with it. Having access to a cyber-universe at our fingertips can be severely detrimental to our focus, squashing our productivity into a shadow of what it once was. The result? A weakened sense of well-being, accomplishment and purpose. Cal Newport, author of Digital Minimalism, joins us to explain the nature of this network and what we can do to avoid falling victim to the everlasting cycle of distraction.
