Is over-connectivity wreaking havoc on your business & personal life?

In the book “Thrive” by Arianna Huffington, Arianna explores how today’s society should implement a third metric to success that truly creates a life of balance and well-being. She wrote, “Unfortunately the ever-increasing creep of technology into our lives, our families, our bedrooms, our brains makes it much harder to renew ourselves. The average smartphone user checks his or her device every six and a half minutes. That works out to around 150 times a day. Our brains are naturally wired to connect, so it’s not easy to turn away from those kinds of stimuli.”




This week, I challenge you to take an audit of your relationship with technology. During your audit, answer these questions…truthfully:

1. Is your relationship with technology having a positive or negative impact on your life in general?

2. List three ways over-connectivity is wreaking havoc on your life (business & personal).

3. Deep Dive #1…Start strategizing on ways to reduce your technology foot print while maintaining balance. For example, small gestures like disconnecting for a time period. Some decide to turn on their phones’ “do not disturb” from 7 pm until 7 am to maintain balance and reduce their dependence on technology.

4. Deep Dive #2…Truly think on how over dependence on technology is impacting your company’s bottom line. Take this time to identify ways to streamline processes or even automate steps to reduce over-connection in your work place. Even consider revising or creating company policies that are devoted to reducing your company’s after hours foot print.

Through this week’s Think Outside The Box Moment, we hope you have an ah-ha moment that truly stretches the depths of your comfort zone and awakens a renewed thought. Until next time…
