The S word is STOP!

What are were you doing 5 minutes ago?  I hope you were not on Facebook/Twitter. These two sites are very dangerous to your imagination and creativity!

Addiction is very possible with Twitter/Facebook because of the constant flow of information. Addictions are possible with hobbies and other things that the typical person does. You have to ask yourself, do you see yourself doing this (Tweeting) for the rest of your life. Consider how long you spend on Twitter – even thinking about it. It’s addicting because of three reasons.

1. You get a constant stream of real-time information

2. Interaction with strangers is exuberating.

3. The information keeps you continuing tweeting.

While tweeting is exciting, I do not think that staying on the website for hours or checking it 20 times a day is healthy. It is just not natural for humans to be fed constant stream of information. Most of the tweets are junk anyway and you do not need. Only some of these tweets are useful to the user. Need is the particular word. Do you need to be on Twitter for 3 hours each day? That adds up over the course of a lifetime.

Twitter or Facebook is the website form of  Television. Twitter is the same as  24/7 news channels because it shows supposedly streaming relevant information as it applies to your life. All of this sucks you in with outlandish information and keeps you from your true goals in life, whatever they may be.

We do not have time to waste (in life). We are supposedly only alive for a short period of time. People should not be using up their time on some crazy website that makes TV obsolete.

Focus on your goals. There is no time to waste. Work harder in achieving them.

Although you may have found me through Twitter/Facebook, it doesn’t mean that I am blasting it! I am trying to get you to understand that you may spend too much time on this when you have very little time for anything else!

What to do if your addicted and you want off?

Go cold turkey and suck it up. Believe that Twitter/Facebook is not going to help you in whatever your goals are. Go directly to the blogs, if you desire. It will be the hardest within 48 hours and 1st week, as you change your schedule around. Just say NO to yourself.

This is the way to enlightenment and succeed in more desirable pursuits.
