Don’t Make Cense Sunday’s: Scrolling your life away

“Too much time is spent scrolling your life away on social media sites.”- Justin A. Starks

Since my space and other various social networks was invented, we have been giving too much of our precious time, giving away our time. These social media platforms are making us react in a while different fashion. Most of us are now hiding our true identity just to impress the public. It’s like going viral is all we care about inside the community. We sing, dance, fight, and even commit murders all over these social websites. It’s a shame how many individuals I see just want to become rappers thinking it will gain them instant fam, women, and infinite wealth. I don’t think social media is helping the community but instead harming the community.

Bye Bye, Time

Americans spend on average a total of 2 hours on social media a day. Let’s say you aren’t promoting a business for monetary reasons. Let’s just say you are scrolling down your time and posting pointless selfies. This means you are just a consumer to a world full of marketers and producers. These marketers spend billions of dollars on ads a year just to control your brain waves and behavior. In fact, you are just another individual who doesn’t know what to do with your own time so social media gives you something to do. By the way, those two hours in a lifetime equals up to 5 years in 4 months in a single lifetime. Wow! That’s bonkers!

Spend more time building

Just imagine everything you ever wanted going down the drain because of this wild urge to constantly feed your social media addiction. Some claim they could get off at any giving time and do something else, but let’s be truthful and understand that is a lie. We have to start capitalizing off of our time spent on social media and build a brand.

Don’t be another follower

Everyday you wake up the first thing you do is grab your phone and scroll your morning away. Let’s say you woke up and put that same energy towards a dream of yours. Woke up early to do a workout and read some pages out of that book you always wanted to accomplish. Woke up before work and mowed the yard your wife has been nagging to you about all week. Just something else instead of tumbling time down these timeless social media websites.

The Catch

What’s the catch for this blog you ask? It’s all about using your time wisely. It doesn’t make any sense to sit around and scroll your life away. That time could be used investing in what you love! Do something you love and share your tactics with the world. Just don’t be another user, be someone with substance that could possibly turn the world into a better place. A better place with your vision leading the way. Don’t let someone else vision control your life.

  1. Great post and I fully agree. It’s a shame that too much time is spent staring at a screen. Sure, the Internet, blogs, social media, news and information all play a useful role in our modern lives but it’s how we manage that usefulness to create, learn, help and grow rather than seek superficial acceptance from “friends” we hardly see or even know.

  2. Yesterday one of my friends was telling me she’s checking Facebook most of her days.. I’m like wow that’s a lot of time. Then I read your post here. Wow your stats about how many years it all comes out to is mind-boggling!
