Benefit of quitting social media

  • Negatives:
    • Constant 'hum-of-stimuli' is detrimental to the loss of concentration/focus on work
    • Carefully curated positive news from others causes depression/low self-esteem
  • Positives:
    • Work with intensity can help accomplish more with regular time (8am-5pm). Personally I have tested this during summer'2017 at ARL.
    • Outside of work will be peaceful. Example: reading hardcover book without constant hum-of-stimuli and depression from fake social world.
  • Myth debunked:
    • Not visible to the world. Not true. If you can do something good (deep work) people will find you from the web.
