Ways You Give Your Power Away @Work

We’re up to #4 on the power drain at work. And here it is:

You can’t disconnect and just be.

In this over-connected world, many of you have become addicted to social media, email, and text.

Left to your own devices, you’re always “on” and never “off.”

This addiction, like all addictions, leaves you anxious and powerless, and always wanting more, when you should be looking down less.

For instance:

Do you lose the thread of an in-person conversation in the 3-dimensional world because you’re too wrapped up in the virtual world?

Do you keep your smartphone on all night?

Is your device right next to your bed?

Have you answered (or considered answering) correspondence from work in the middle of the night?

Need I say more?

Learn to work to live, not live to work.

Learn to disconnect and just be.
