Recently, I’ve made two challenges for myself:
- Do not look at Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media account for an entire month starting July 24th.
- Read at least two books during that month.
The goal is to be able to get my head in the right place, devouring more words on the page and also setting aside time to write. Social media obviously can become an addictive time suck but I think it also gets my head in the wrong places and kills my productivity.
Already I’ve noticed a difference and a change in my thinking and my motivations. And over the course of the month, I’ll blog once in a while, detailing how it’s going over all.
The end result I’d like to see is an increase in productivity in both reading and writing.
