Here’s how to take control.

“We live in a distracting world, and it’s not getting any better. New information crashes toward us at every moment. Technology companies work tirelessly to create products that bring convenience and delight to our days. The incentive structure hasn’t changed: usage creates data, data sells ads, ubiquity creates demand, demand sells devices.”

Use technology to your advance, not your demise. Know why your using it, and why you’re using specific apps on your digital devices. What’s your Goal? Why is it useful? If you know why you do what you do, the choices become easier. Identify the irrational and subconscious triggers, and move beyond them.

Additionally, create barriers to distraction. Remove the distracting apps, log out and change passwords, and get proactive with your time. Rearrange your schedule, and make conscious decisions about what you do when you’ve got a few minutes to spare.
