But we’re so addicted to our phones and the information we consume, that we’ve opted in, not by design, but by default. If you ask most people whether they deliberately chose what shows up in their feeds, inboxes, etc the answer would be no. I couldn’t’ tell you how half of what’s there got there. By opting out, completely, you make space for what truly matters, what has meaning, significance and value. Opting out is a simple choice with profound implications for your well being and success.
We are constantly consuming and completely addicted to information. Most of this information doesn’t lead to any worthwhile change in our behavior our lives. If anything it’s programming our brains to cultivate more bad habits and develop shorter attention spans. Is the content in your inbox, newsfeed, podcast app, etc there by design for by default? For most people, it’s the latter. If you haven’t seen the interview below with former FB exec name, I highly recommend it.
