The Mission

Enjoy a truly happy and meaningful life while using technology to serve you – not the other way around.

The 3 Goals of Digital Detox:

  1. Discover what a meaningful life looks and feels like for you
  2. Discover how to use technology (or not use it) to serve your meaningful life
  3. Discover how to break free from the traps of modern weaponized technology so you can fulfill your life’s purpose (instead of being a slave to the system).

 

Our technology was initially intended to help us create a happier, more productive, and meaningful life doing what we love. In the early days of personal computers, people like Steve Jobs considered the computer to be a ‘bicycle for the mind’ – a tool to enhance our capacities and improve our lives and creative potential. Computers were meant to be our friends and trusted servants that allow us to extend our best intentions and make us happier and more productive.

However, along the way, the business models behind tech companies slowly changed so that the more you use their devices, or services, the more they get paid.

This change has given almost all tech companies – from the big guns like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple to the smaller players and app creators – a financial incentive to make us addicted and become slaves to their systems.

No longer is the primary goal of apps and devices to make our lives better but to get our attention. Whoever gets the most attention, get the most money.

What this means is the software we use right now is now has been specifically designed to act like a slot machine or casino, keeping us coming back for more – while serving us less. Our devices have in effect become weaponized against us for the profit of the companies that provide them.

In an ironic twist of events, the ‘solution’ to our problems has itself become the problem. The masters have become the servants to their own tools. Instead of technology existing to serve our needs, we have become servants to its needs –  mindlessly checking, swiping, clicking from morning to evening. And each day that passes these companies get better and better at making us addicted. They watch us 24.7 and refine their strategies to addict us futher based on their relentless testing. All the while, we, the users (unpaid workers) are losing vast amounts of our time down the rabbit hole and enjoying our prescious lives less.
