Joshua Fields Millburn, of The Minimalists, on killing the internet (at home) in the name of productivity:

The internet is not evil, just like candy is not evil. But if your entire diet consists of candy, you get sick and fat fairly quickly. Thus, I don’t keep bags of candy at home, just like I don’t keep the internet at home anymore either.

via Killing the Internet at Home Is the Most Productive Thing I’ve Ever Done – The Minimalists.

I saw The Minimalists do a book reading in Leeds as part of their worldwide book tour for Everything That Remains.

One of the things that came across more in real-life is just how funny the guy is.

Getting rid of the internet at home is great advice which I fully endorse. On my blog. Via the internet.

The irony of this doesn’t escape me, but you can schedule posts in advance and learn to make the most of your online time.

I’ve gone for long stretches without internet access at home (up to about a year at a time) — it’s painful but instructive.

I just wish that wi-fi, or ideally broadband, was ubiquitous so not having the internet at home was a no-brainer rather than an edge-case.
