I know it’s not very easy to close your Facebook account. If you attempt to close your Facebook account, they’ll tell you they are making it inactive for 6 months so that in case you change your mind, you have a chance to come back to the site. And you will go back to Facebook because of peer pressure and then waste all your time checking out photos of your friend standing in front of Niagara falls or cutting birthday cake.
However, there are few who want to do something different in life. Following are my tips for those who have a purpose in life, want to achieve something and be a better human –
1. Close Facebook Account:
Facebook & Twitter are biggest time killers. Knowingly or unknowingly you are wasting your precious (since you want to achieve something – time is important to you) time getting unwanted updates on Facebook. Close your facebook account and spend some more time on the things you SHOULD do. If you want to relax – learn to play a musical instrument or listen to nice music. If you want update from friend’s life – give them a phone call.
2. Improve your computer productivity:
I figured out that if you close all other windows and only focus on the task you wish to do – you will complete the task in 70% less time. Try it. This means, you will have to close all those chat windows and youtube pages on your browser that are diverting your attention. You’ll become more productive and feel better about your own work.
3. Avoid Multi-Tasking:
Let’s accept this: Humans aren’t made for multi-tasking. All the multi-tasking we can do is already taken care by our brain (it listens, sees, thinks, senses an itch on your back, senses temperature etc.) Let’s not overload the brain doing multiple tasks. Instead, focus on one task and do it. Only try to do multiple tasks when none of them is very important.
I hope this will help.
