Update: Social Media Hiatus

There is life before and after reading all of Cal Newport’s books.

I used to be on social media a lot. I lived on Instagram. These platforms were made to be addicting. The inspirational quotes, the attention, the escapist posts- what is there not to like? I don’t mean this to be sarcastic. Instagram was truly fun for me.

Despite all the pros, I’ve decided to go cold turkey a month ago.

Result?

Peace I never knew I needed and career clarity.

I’ll write a full review of this in my next blog post. Decided to go cold turkey a month ago and will keep it this way as long as possible.

Cheers to digital minimizing!

  1. Kudos on unplugging and seeking clarity for yourself! Social media is part of work life and I find it a challenge to thread the needle between interacting because I find value in it vs. doing it because everyone else does it and there’s a de-facto expectation that isn’t really clear why it’s necessary on such a regular basis.
