We can have all of the tools in the world but they are only good if we choose to use them.
Constantly, we make excuses or reasons why we can’t get certain things done. “I don’t have the time”, we tend to say.
Here’s a suggestion. Go to your Settings on your phone and check your screen time and usage for apps. (On iPhone go to >> Settings > Screen Time). Let’s bundle the social media apps…How long did you spend the last week?
If you’re struggling to “find time” then help yourself by making time.
Did you know you can set time limits on apps to help you manage overconsumption (I have a 30-minute daily timer on my social media apps)? This is one example of dozens of reminders, notifications, alarms, timers, etc that can help you manage your time, avoid distractions, commit to a project, etc.
If you are looking to become more efficient with your time, start looking at what you can take away versus looking at what you can add.
The tools are out there to help us. The question then becomes, “Are we willing to choose to use them?”
