Recently, I was reading few articles on Time Management. I came to know that people with great intelligence use their phones so less that they can manage everything on time.
Before #NoShaveNovember starts( i.e., on October 30) I uninstalled WhatsApp (An app which enable us to see other people’s display pictures and irrelevant long useless talk) and fortunately it happened with so ease that I didn’t even think of talking to people on WhatsApp. My life was still on a roller coaster even without WhatsApp.
Thankfully, I could live without it so here’s time come to get away from Facebook too, because I am being addicted to check the news feed, people’s stuff, how many likes do I get on my photos, how many comments do I get on my posts etc etc etc. My views completely changed when I read about great people’ views on such dilemma, which I’m gonna share with you guys ☺
Here are a few ideas:
~They turn the phone off and put it away during the night. They don’t sleep with the phone and they don’t scroll the Twitter feed at 3 a. m. Sleep is the priority of smart people.
~They turn off the notifications while they work. Because the focus is the essential component of the productive work.
~They put it away when they talk to someone. They are fully present and devoted to the person in front of them.
~They uninstall the apps they don’t use. Cluttered phone (or home) creates cluttered mind.
~They take photos. They capture the moments and memories. But they don’t look into the world through the camera.
~They listen to podcasts and audio books on the go. That is the best usage of the time spent in commute.
~They put the phone in the case to protect it. (And don’t ask me: “How do you know that?”)They call their mom.
~They answer the voice messages. (Or don’t install them in the first place.)They don’t switch it for the new model just because the new model came out. They use it as much as they can.
In short, the intelligent people own their phone; they don’t let their phone own them.
