QUITE SOCIAL MEDIA – DR. CAL


What the market values :

it is the ability to produce things that are rare and are valuable with deep concentrated work, and it required to build real skills and to apply those skills to produce things.

We have a growing amount of research which tells us that if you spend large portions of your day in a state of fragmented attention, large portion of your day breaking up your attention to take a quick glance to just check instagram, that is can permanently reduce your capacity for concentration. In other words you could permanently reduce your capacity to do exactly the type of deep effort that we are finding to be more and more necessary.

If you lose your ability to sustain concetration, you are going to become less and less relevant to this economy.

there is also psychological harms that are well documented, that socmed bring that we need to address :

  1. we know from the research, literature that more you use socmed the more liekly you are to feel lonely and isolated
  2. We know that the constant exposure to your friends carefully created positive portyals if their life can leave you to feel inaduquate and can increase rates of deppression.
  3. If you treat your attention with respect so you dont fragment it, you allow it stay whole… You perserve your concentration when it comes time to work you can do one thing after another and do it with intensity and intensity can be trated for time.

NONSENSE : it is a slot machine in your phone.
