Dedicated : the case for commitment in an age of infinite browsing [eAudioBook]

Davis, Pete2022
Most of us have had this experience: browsing through countless options on Netflix, unable to commit to watching any given movie - losing so much time skimming that it?s too late to watch anything at all. Pete Davis argues that this is the defining characteristic of the moment: keeping our options open. We are stuck in 'Infinite Browsing Mode' - swiping through endless dating profiles without committing to a single partner, jumping from place to place searching for the next big thing, refusing to make any decision that might close us off from an even better choice we imagine is around the corner. This culture of restlessness and indecision, Davis argues, is causing tension in the lives of young people today. In Dedicated, Davis examines this quagmire, as well as the counterculture of committers who have made it to the other side. He shares what we can learn from the 'long-haul heroes' who courageously commit themselves to particular places, professions and causes - who relinquish the false freedom of an open future in exchange for the deep fulfilment of true dedication.
