I'll admit it. Sometimes I get completely overwhelmed with facebook. I know that you can choose from many different settings, but it can get especially difficult to reply to friends. I have many projects I'll be working on over the next few months, so I'd like to experiment with deactivating facebook during some or all of that time. This will allow me much more focus, clarity and extra time. Surprisingly, I'm finding that twitter and blogging actually help me during my busy times.
I'm going through a 500 hour yoga teacher training and currently realizing that i've slipped behind a bit. My work schedule definitely has something to do with it and coupled with the rough winter, I've been working much more than normal.
In addition to this, I'm in the very beginning stages of launching a health counseling business. I'm merely in the seed-planting stage, but I would like to focus more attention on this area.
What does facebook have to do with all of this? Facebook is a destructive action for me, much like TV. Now with the ubiquitous smartphones, it's that much easier to remain distracted. Smartphones (in my case, the iphone) can be a destructive action as well, but that's a completely different post!
I'm hoping that deactivating my facebook as well as my february stillness challenge will keep me motivated and focused.
So far, I've only slipped a few times with the stillness challenge. That sounds like alot, but considering the record amount of snow we had and that I was actually stuck at work a few days, I'm not doing so badly!
I'm wondering about your thoughts on facebook: does it help you in your social &/or business interactions or is it a distraction?
