The internet has a wealth of valuable information and equally as much nonsensical and useless knowledge.
Social media can either be used to promote your personal brand (if you care enough to have one and maintain it) or mindlessly sift through tidbits of people’s lives and compare your own to theirs.
It’s simple to not think. It’s simple to compare.
Because both don’t require you to push yourself in any way.
It only really belittles.
One of the first steps I’m taking on my journey to further my career is to use the internet in a useful manner.
Social media literally EATS up my time.
From idiotic snapchat stories posted to garner attention, to unnecessary status updates that no one really needs to know, social media can depict a person in a misinterpreted light.
I am guilty of the above and several more atrocities I don’t need to mention because I’m on a path towards reverting my ways.
In order to be taken seriously you have to take YOURSELF seriously.
And right now is the time to take a step back and reflect on all that you put out into the world.
Do you like what you see? What you read?
Change begins now.
