A World Without Email (And a More Optimal Life) With Cal Newport


Do you dislike email, or at the very least, the amount of time, energy, and attention your inbox demands? If so, you aren’t alone. In this episode of The Growth Equation Podcast, we welcome Cal Newport, bestselling author of Deep Work, Digital Minimalismand most recently, A World Without Email. We dive deep into Cal’s new book. But we also explore Cal’s journey to becoming an author who is also a computer scientist, and who was formerly a pretty dang good athlete all the way up to the collegiate level. This is a wide-ranging conversation that tackles a variety of topics including using constraints to be more free, fit versus grit, exploration versus mastery, and of course e-mail (and more accurately, how to lessen its role in your life).

Get Cal’s new book, A World Without Email, here.
