I've been going crazy with the topic of productivity lately, and I'm going to keep it up a while longer, so stay with me! Today I want to talk about something that is just a big challenge for me as it is for everyone out there. I want us to learn how to crush our digital addictions.
Technology is such a huge commodity and it’s almost second nature to use some application instead of being intentional about our surroundings.
In the last episode, we talked about linking everything to our goals. Everything we do throughout the day while we are awake has to be linked to something that we want in life. If you want a strong marriage, you have to have an intention of how you're going to show up in that relationship. If we want to be good parents, we need to show them how to be intentional in their lives so they can be successful.
In business, we rationalize the use of technology for work purposes. Go to darrenhardy.com and take his productivity addictions assessment, it’s a fun little two-sided assessment. Do the assessment with your team and discuss the results with each other so you can better align with your team goals.
We have to look at technology as business owners, not as someone who is looking for affirmation. Think about how social media can be used strategically and profitably.
I go into Facebook or Instagram and look around at everyone’s perfect lives, and then I come out feeling like complete crap. I have the best life I could imagine, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. But I still come out of those applications feeling bad about myself.
I have some questions for you:
- How are your digital addictions taking you out of confidence?
- How are you digital addictions taking you out of momentum?
- How are your digital addictions messing with your psychological well-being?
You don’t need to be catching up on what your friends are up to or seeing what news is circulating around. That is all distraction from the goals you are trying to achieve.
We hope you enjoyed this episode of The Business Freedom Podcast.
