Social media can be overwhelming, especially if you do not have strategic plans for your day. A day can stretch to weeks; before you know it you are dealing with an addiction- you just can’t seem to stay away from Facebook or Instagram or Twitter. And what about WhatsApp groups? And all the private groups people make of themselves on social media?
Isn’t this slowing you down just a little bit? Hmm.
The attraction (or distractions) on social media is like the break of a new day – it is never-ending. That means, if you don’t have a plan for yourself, soon enough you will have nothing else to pursue but the latest trends on social media. If this habit feeds your stomach, by all means carry on. But if it doesn’t, how do you gauge the excesses of the internet?
Here’s my tip:
Life is all about winning or losing. Nobody sets out in life to lose. Nobody. Even when we lose, we try to see how we can turn a loss or a mistake to a winning story. So indeed, life is all about winning reasonably.
You can win on social media by ensuring you use your time on the internet to self educate, self develop, self train. There are youtube videos on almost any topic imaginable. And while you are consumed by your favourite social media platform, find ways to build wealth and be more productive through that means. Not beg. But find how you can promote your business or build more career knowledge?
You do not have to use your time for frivolities. Find ways social media can be productive. Use it differently. Start an idea that can be made great by your addiction to social media.
And most importantly, kick the addiction. Have control over your time. Time is all you’ve got.
Oh! And Stephaniedaily is one habit you need to keep. Here, there are instructive ways to do better. Go on and make the best of your social media time today!
Just a thoughtful Thursday tip *wink*
