Todays world is not only digital but immediately available at all times to everyone. It os not the internet that caused this. Obviously it is involved. The biggest time waster ever invented is social media.
I know you are shaking your head and callong me a crack pot but you know i am right.
As you are reading this, i can almost guarantee you have at least three social platforms loaded on your mobile and maybe even all your mobile devices. Let me guess, Facebook, instagram, twitter and maybe another few.
This is the biggest time waster invented and yet nobody actually acknowledges it. They will make up all sorts of excuses why they use these platforms. Here are some of the best
“It is for business” sales rep.
“I hardly spemd any time on it” everyone
“I am keeping up with my family” very common
“It is for research i need for work” office worker.
How much time do you spend on these platforms, what do you actually use it for? Do a little experiment with yourself. Uninstall these platforms. Don’t delete your accounts yet. Then spend the next 5 days using the time doing whatever you actually are supposed to do.
You will be astounded by the result. In fact there will 2 results:
1. You will find that your work does not rely on social media to survive.
2. You are actually addicted to social media platforms.
There are some instances where it is needed. An example is a company’s facebook page where they promote and educate their followers about their company. If you manage such a page, it can be done from your internet browser.
