Replacing the Social Media Habit
By Guest Author: Harrison Thorne Originally Published on LinkedIn
There is an overwhelming amount of literature on habits. Every author seems to have a different perspective, but most seem to agree that habits cannot be “broken.” Rather, they must be replaced.
A lot of people have the habit of multitasking, checking social media, and becoming distracted. If this is you, read on!
As I have mentioned before, most people can get 80% of their work done using only 20% of their efforts. For instance, I have to read a dense section on wills and trusts law this morning. This reading will take me about one hour. However, before I replaced my social media/multitasking habit with deep, productive work habits, the reading might have taken me three hours. I might have read five pages, checked Facebook, texted a friend, read another page, browsed my inbox, etc.
