Think Before You Click
A SIMPLE MINDSET TO AVOID WASTING YOUR VALUABLE TIME
Clicking links: One of the biggest ‘rabbit holes’
- Let’s do the math: 20 links a day x 5 minutes a link = 100 minutes a day x 365 days a year = 36,500 minutes a year, or 76 8-hour days
Each click is an investment
You ‘pay’ something in the form of your time and attention. What’s the value of what you are getting in return?
What effect does this have on you?
- Often stirs up negative emotions and/or negative conversations, which drain your ability to think, feel, and create positive things of value.
- Is it worth it to you?!?
Think before you click
- Instead of losing and wasting a lot of your valuable time due to clicking links impulsively, have a simple strategy (see below) to weed out the nonsense and negativity
But don’t you need to be informed?
Being informed and being inundated are two different things!
Less clicks = more awesomeness
- With a strategy to minimize the time you click on low-value links, imagine the amount of time that becomes available to you
- What if you were able to recapture 1/2 of what we started with, or 38 days, for taking high-value action – you could do something amazing with an extra chunk of time that size!
For the next 3-7 days (at least), when you get the urge to click a link, stop and ask yourself
- Does it directly impact my life?
- Is it positive?
- Does it add value to my life?
- Am I clicking just to avoid doing something else?
