One needs to do something new, something creative if wants to grow in life. Social networking sites/apps is wasting the time for those who believes in learning something new all the time.
Not only in terms of new technology, it can paralyzed you in such a way that you start living artificial life, the life based on social media only.
We have become so much addicted towards the social media that we actually forget how to enjoy the real life. When we travel somewhere we make ourselves so much busy in updating on social media that it appears that we have visited that place just to update on social media.
Exactly one year back at this time I was busy in launching my new website and right now I am busy interacting with my facebook and whatsapp friends. I become so much addictive to this social media that I forgot the art of creativity, I forgot how to make unique websites that I used to make all the time. Chatting on social media is such a fun that it becomes really tough for me to code anymore.
Today when new year is coming, I need to select one of the life. A life with social media where you can interact with friends all the time or the life with learning new technology. It’s not the question to be put in front of me but to the whole world, to every person who involve in some kind of creativity.
Leaving social media or stop interacting with your friends on regular basis is surely very tough but one needs to do that to learn more in life. Not only developers like me but it’s a waste of time for almost everyone in this world whether they are job holders, business man or the women staying at home. One needs to think that if one is investing 2-3 hours on social media every day and if that time would be utilized in some other creative work then how much benefit one can get. Job holders can update their skills by learning new things related to their work, business man can explore new ways of improving their business and a women at home can do hundreds of innovative tasks that can also help them to earn a bit.
In the last year, I have some dreams, the dreams to see myself as one of the best developer in the world but today I comfort myself to stay with whatever I have. The inner spirit to learn something new is halt in such a way that I don’t even think about it. I have set myself in new goals, goals that revolve around social media only.
But I am going to change myself now. I am going to set my goals again to explore more in life. I am going to do something that is very easy to say but really tough to do. Some friends are so dear to me that stop interacting with them on social media is the daunting task for me but need to do if want to discover more. I have decided to leave social media in 2016 as my new year revolution in order to gain more time to improve my technology, to make more unique websites, to learn more in life. I have made my decision, now it’s your choice…
Facebook or Google can’t be built if the Facebook or Google developers engaged themselves in social media too much 🙂
