The computer scientist and bestselling author joins us with a radical vision for a workplace where fulfilling and creative work is no longer held back by a steady flow of digital noise.
Email reduces productivity. Email makes us miserable. Email has a mind of its own.
The average office worker checks their email every 5.4 minutes and spends 28% of their total time at work reading and answering emails (McKinsey). Constant communication has become part of the way we work, creating an ‘always on’, hyperactive hive mind that completely goes against the ways our brain is naturally wired. This flow of distractions disrupts us from achieving meaningful work, causes us undue stress, and costs businesses millions in the form of untapped potential.
New York Times bestselling business thinker and computer scientist Cal Newport has already transformed the way we work with books such as Digital Minimalism and So Good They Can’t Ignore You. Now he joins How To Academy for an exclusive livestream event, revealing how to reimagine and redesign work without the constant pings of email distracting us.
Drawing on a fascinating array of case studies and offering practical solutions, Newport shows us how a world without email will liberate people to do their most profound, fulfilling and creative work – and much more of it too.
