I think it would be best for my mental health. On the other hand, I realised I procrastinate when I spend time on social media. I have plenty of things to do with my website projects, app developments and content creation. I believe, and I hope, by cutting social media from my daily routine, I can complete all my project according to schedule. And I also hope to complete all my courses I’ve purchased from Udemy.
It is really unbecoming to see some of people I know turning to something or someone they aren’t just so they can fit in / to win the Internet society. Or to get approval or validation from netizen who actually don’t really care about them. I could be one of these, perhaps I did, if so, I regret it wholly.
I believe this is achievable.
In 2019, I decided to put my phone in the drawer. It usually placed on my work desk. I listened to music, I occasionally check on notifications, I sometimes just check on it. I am glad I realised about it sooner. Needless to say, when I put my phone in the drawer, switched off the notification, and set to only ring when receiving calls – I improved a lot of things. I get my work done before dateline, I understand more of my works, I managed to create a work method to save time to complete my task. These changes benefitted me when I was chosen to lead projects, went to seminar, improve communication and work relationship and opportunity to improve workflow by implementing the usage of database and automation.
Now I would like to bring those methods and formulas to my side projects and personal life. I hope by doing so, I will complete my Udemy course (JAVA Development and Website Development), improve my websites, roll out more Android app and create more videos to my Youtube channel.
Smartphone is useful when it’s not distracting.
