Never before have we been so free, but at the same time, feeling so trapped. The technologies that give us the freedom to work from anywhere, learn anything, be in contact with people around the world, also make us work too much, get information overload, and stay hooked on social media for too long… Spending our days watching other people live their lives.
It’s a constant battle to get the right dosage of work, information, and socialization. The challenge gets ever greater as many applications are constructed to keep us scrolling and clicking (or touching).
We need to find our own tricks and hacks to use technology to our advantage, not to give ourselves away to this attention/connection economy.
The right dose can enrich our lives like never before, while the overdose is lethal to our happiness, health, and relationship.
How do you use and manage technology to enhance your life?
