Jocelyn K. Glei

According to Jocelyn K. Glei we are living in an age of distraction. Email, social media, the ever quickening news cycle, are taking a huge toll on our productivity, our creativity, even on our happiness. But we are not helpless here. Jocelyn’s book and articles, her podcast, and a new online class aim to show us the light at the end of our digital tunnel, and lead us back out into the open air.

On this episode, Jocelyn K. Glei talks about how the internet can lead to burnout. “That’s what’s so problematic about the digital space is it assumes an infinite capacity.”
