The 3 Best Ways to Spend Your Time on the Internet

For this post, I’d like to focus on what I think are the 3 most productive ways to spend your time on the internet: Learning, Earning, and Connecting..


Learning is the path to growth, and growth is the foundation of life. But in more practical terms, each new skill or subject that you learn makes you more valuable in the marketplace, and a more ‘well rounded’ person.

Many universities offer their entire curriculum online for free, and sites like Udemy offer tens of thousands of free & premium video courses for learning just about any skill, and between Google & Wikipedia, there’s virtually no limit to what you can learn online.


Another productive way to spend your time is earning. Time is money, and that money can buy you experiences, more personal freedom & autonomy, and a better quality of life.

One way I like to do this is with Micro Job sites. There are lots of different marketplaces, such as Fiverr, that allow you to perform one-off tasks and get paid.

I’ve even found a way to use these sites to learn new skills or improve existing ones all while getting paid. You can read more about that topic in a blog post I’ve written HERE.


Lastly, I think it’s important to spend some time connecting with other people, and the internet is an excellent place to do that.

Between the plethora of social media platforms, email, video calls, and so on, there’s no shortage of ways to interact with other people online.

Whether strengthening existing relationships or forming new ones, this last point is vital to your overall well-being.

In Summary

Beyond being productive on the internet, I’ve developed a formula that has helped me to increase my personal productivity in many other areas of my life.

All the best,
