Ok, so I’ve made a pledge recently to spend no more than 30 minutes
a day on social media – and only after 5pm.
Here’s what I’ve learnt:
#1 social media is a crutch.
Seriously, you get bored for a moment – you reach for your phone, click
on the Facebook link and assault your senses with dozens of different
blobs of content all at once – much of which is not relevant or useful.
Instead, I’ve been taking that time to ask a question.
For instance, the other day, I asked the question…
How can I be a better dad?
And you know what answer came back?
It’s not what you would think.
What came back was…
And do you know what else came back…
Getting healthy will make you a better entrepreneur, a
better friend, a better partner…
Because if you’re tired all the time, you’re good to
So now I ask questions.
And instead of jumping on social media I read.
I look up books. You’ve got to replace one crutch for
something else… nature abhors a vacuum.
Anyway, as a result of that I’ve discovered some
incredible books which have given me new insights
Including High Performance Habits by Brendan
Burchard which I think could be a game-changer.
Anyway, try it for yourself.
Jump off social media. Ask yourself a powerful
Question instead of jumping on.
A question like:
How can I get more leads?
How can I be a better parent?
How can I serve my clients better?
Direct your mind to better things – then come back
and thank me for it.
