Social media

A blessing and a curse

Social media is a blessing. We can communicate with the world through a computer or phone. We can gain knowledge into other cultures and traditions. We can find out events, news around the world easily and whenever we want. We can help others who live far away even.

But, truth is, it can also be a curse. We can be robbed of our money or fooled by professional scammers. We can be a target for trolls and bullies. We can lose much of our privacy. And the worst, at least for me, we can lose time with distractions instead of focusing on the work that matters most to us.

Scheduling time

I think this disguises itself, but deep inside it’s a real problem. Sometimes social media can be draining of our time, of our energy, of our desires. Sometimes the time lost on social media could’ve been better used to do other things that need our attention–like family time, like working on hobbies, like work, like outdoor activities, etc.

I think a good schedule, a good order should steer us in a good direction. Scheduling can bring discipline into our lives, maybe more productivity and passion for something that matters more than checking what our friends are doing on Twitter or Facebook.

That’s great, Andrew! I saw a video interview last week with author Dean Koontz. He says he writes at least 4 pages a day, and in a good day he aims for 6 or 7. A little bit out of my range. Just thought I’d share that. Thanks for commenting.
