How easily you grabbed my time..

By | June 22, 2016

I always worried seeing people buried themselves in their mobile phones or laptop the whole day. I believed never could I understand their thoughts which makes themselves so much addicted to this virtual world.

But this wordpress taught me a great lesson… The lesson which I could never ever study from facebook or what’s app or any other social media.

I could see how much I got involved in this blogging word- reading, commenting, posting…. How easily it grabbed my time for the past few weeks…

Yes, it’s time to apply some controlling torque…otherwise my routine tasks will be punishing me especially in the morning halves. Let me ensure that I wont be logging into wordpress in the morning half of my days. Let me make scheduled posts so that wordpress will work for me even in my absence.

Friends.. what is your plan..Have you already drawn a line..? Or are you a crazy social media follower..?

    I deleted my fb years ago, and I don’t have instagram or snapchat.
    I only have my wordpress page, I login in it when I have a free time

    I agree, social media is eroding into our space and time. Guess we should be able to draw a line regarding the time we spend on it.

        Yes buddy you will. See I also reduce my entertainment time. Like watching too much TV also waste of time.

        As per my concern if u want to come on TV then 1st you have to stop watching it. You can take example of many successful persons and actor-actress we dont know weather they have to time TV serials on not. Well believe in hard work automatically your dreams will come true…;)

    I use wordpress in between chores… And blog once in a week. But it is time taking nonetheless, I try my best not to be an addict. But I must say that it is a wonderful distraction from routine existence.

    Time is precious we need to use it carefully…I try to limit my time on social media as we end up spending more than we intend to..

      you are right megha. we end up spending more that we planned.. and as you said correctly, when we realize the value of precious time, we will have our own control..

    I personally cannot stand FB and felt it was a waste of my time, but I do spend a lot of time on my blog. I feel it is very creative and I meet a lot of interesting and creative people from all over the world (like you) with wonderful things to say. They are ‘regulars’ to my blog, and I to theirs, so I feel like we’re friends. It’s lovely. The only other thing I have is Instagram, but it takes up little time. I only post some pictures, and it takes no time at all. And I follow some folks too.

    Used to be an addict, learnt the hard way. Now I prioritise, write very less and read whenever I get time.

    Compartmentalize, Akila, I read a lot. I use my FB as a storage to keep whatever I like there. The magazine’s FB page is really active and as Editor I allot space and time. I Don’t have a smart phone nor a TV. I take calls in a very relaxed manner. I don’t rush to answer if what I am engaged with is important – Priority. Worst comes to worst, I close everything and start listening to music. Cool.
