Not a bad suggestion. Okay, but you’ve like done this how many times already? Yeah, yeah, I geddit. Movie apps, pizza apps, café late apps, banking apps, what load of good it’s done for you kind of apps.
The point I’m trying to make is this. Well, I think it’s best to use a case file to explain this. Take me, for instance. I’m a writer by trade, you see. And what gets me through most of it is what they call my tunnel vision. I’m likeable to switch my mind off of stuff and get down to it. But burst my bubble and then I have to start right from the beginning again. Okay, so maybe that sort of thing doesn’t happen to you. It happens to me. Bite me then.
You’re travelling on the tube to work, or you’re on the bus, and thanks to your apps on your smart mobile, your whole life is mapped out in front of you. No need to make any hard and fast decisions. Just tap on an app and there you go. Supper is served. Pizza delivery on time. Stuff to watch tonight. Movies in your in-tray.
But aren’t these sort of things like trivial. Aren’t there more important things to be thinking about? Like fast-tracking your career as an entrepreneur. And using the world’s best platform to do your marketing advertising on Instagram! That’s what I’m talking about. I used to get so befuddled with all these other apps on my phone.
So I ditched them for two good reasons. One reason being, I’m a romantic and I wanted to experience life. And the other being that I’m pretty ambitious about where I want to go with my life as a self-sufficient one-man band entrepreneur. I’ve prioritized. I’ve got a couple of apps on my mobile that I only use for work purposes. One of them, of course, is the Instagram likes app. I need to check the ebb and flow of responses to all the posts I’m pushing out every day.
See if I’ve managed to hit the right buttons were keeping up with going trends is concerned, that sort of thing. And if it’s all quiet out there, I’ve seen the stats, so at least I can now adjust my strategy. Are you getting the picture? Sure you are. You see where I’m going with this. I feel as though I need not tell you another stitch about prioritizing how you use the fantastic tools at your disposal. So, for a little inspiration, let’s close off with this.
I’m really busy. But I still want to experience life. I want to smell the coffee already. I want to be able to walk down the road with hunger pangs in my tummy and stand in the line with great excitement waiting patiently for the takeout guy to take my order. And I want to go to the movies with popcorn and fizz in my lap.
