A lot of us have struggled with our devices. Although there is clearly value in having them, they can also…

  • Be massive time wasters

  • Cause mindless use of our energy

  • Have negative impacts on us in social ways (comparison, misrepresentation, FOMO etc..) 

The problem is, we also need some of the tools that come with them.

Recently I discovered a massive issue that I have…

If I had an important task I needed to do on my phone, I was often wasting 5-10mins of my time during the process of dealing with the task itself.

For example:

  • I had a work message I had to respond to on Facebook Messenger

  • Once I was in the App, I would spend 5-10mins scrolling

  • So this usual 1-minute task ended up taking up to 10 minutes 

When I reflect upon my day, this wastage of time was probably costing me around 40-50 minutes and there was no real value in my ‘scrolling’, I could definitely spend my time on better things.

So I knew I need to address this.

I came up with a strategy, which is really simple, that has dramatically reduced the time I waste on my device. 

In this week’s video, I share this strategy with you so if you are like me, you can be more conscious of the time you may be wasting on your device and spend that time in better, more rewarding ways.
