Should you go for Gadget Detox

Gadget Detox / Social Media Detox / Digital Detox are common terms these days. Since Android took space in our Jeans either we are busy on social media or talking with friends. Today phone takes 70% of an average man's concentration. Often I spot people who have second priority to even take money. Phone is like lifeline for huge population. The funny part is 98% phone users simply don't know why they are using that app.
The Mobile Phone was a luxury, smartphone is pain in the ass. Cheap Data has made people mindless. And the this mindless phone users aid to traffic vows. Often its like one deaf is honking horn to other deaf.
I am not a fan of gadgets will I don't need it truly. Since I bought my first mobile some 15-20 years ago the phone was my bed partner lying few feet away from me but reachable even if I am in sleep. I get only calls with purpose. I bought smartphone much later that too in confusion if smartphone and app can be more productive.
Since I bought smartphone I used to watch couple videos for entertainment and fun after I pack of my days work. Often phone time was after dinner. I have notice couple of changes in me like little soared eyes (my eyesight is weak), and incomplete sleep. Since the problem was not intense I overlooked it.
However, matter of chance due to certain changes between my sitting space and bed I need to leave my phone on table. I can't take it to bed. As I may break it in sleep. Unknowingly since a weak or so I leaving my phone on table some 3 to feet away from me during nights. And surprisingly I get complete sleep now.
Same I experienced with my laptop also.
Moral of the story; gadgets are not your bed partner.
They hamper sleep pattern, health and productivity. Keep them away after use. They are not going to make you money while you sleep.
If you are busy entrepreneur and get many calls often chose for a private number for family and selected friends so they can call you nights also. Keep the business line switched off in nights or on auto answer mode.
So you can be better productive.
My smartphone uses are like this
Make and Answer Calls
Read and Reply Emails
Writing when I am away
Finding directions
Order Food every now and then
Connect my laptop with wifi
Read news
Watch TV Debates
Morning Alarm
Listen Music while eating
Booking a travel ticket or vehicle
IMO to speak to family over weekends
Pay Bills
All this do not not trouble me. This all is a necessity, the trouble is when you use a gadget mindlessly.
If your gadgets are troubling you change your habits. There is nothing like Gadget Detox. You have to make habit of wise use of gadgets.

Work hard but when

Work hardThose are two words I grew listening with As a young kid I used to think should I go forest and cut some tree branches, or like my Grandpa graze some cattle or like that uncle go farm. And if work hard is the key why not my dad go forest so we can buy and fly an airplane. Perhaps small children think like that and think much freely, don't know though but I was like that. Airplane dream never realized and when I joined a company I was told we want to be number 1. I didn't nodded even, just learnt CEO want to take company to No. 1 position, somewhere deep down I took that as a challenge. The inner me knows I have an opportunity to invest resources and grow. I am in habit of enjoying my task so no big deal, I know I can try my best to work my way, results are not in my hands. What I can do is called work. And being a physics student i know when we multiply force to distance we get work done. That work could be hilarious, why not, laughing gas is there a result of work done by …
