Simplify Technology with Limits

“The problem comes when we try to figure out how to get a grip on it all, to tame technology to do what we need and then let it go so we can be more present, go outside more, move more, be connected to each other in real life more. Wrangling the chaos into something that we use consciously isn’t always easy. I propose simplicity. And the method I propose is limits.This is nothing new — I’ve been an advocate of the simplicity of limits for well over a decade, and many others have proposed simplicity and limits as well. It’s a movement, if one that’s drowned out by technology. But as with anything, we have to keep revisiting it. Keep coming back. Keep reminding ourselves. Keep practicing.” Leo Babauta shares more.
