Radically transform your experience in one week


“Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you”
Prince



For the next week (that’s 7 full days) click the off button on all of your digital devices from the time you arrive home from work until you wake up the next morning.

Turn off your mobile phone.

Turn off your PS4, your laptop, your Blu-ray player, your tablet, that ipod, the TV, and your sound system.

Instead of screen time fill the space with anything at all that doesn’t involve a digital screen or digital noise.

Make something. Write with a pen and paper. Read quietly. Sit and wonder at the stars. Talk to your spouse. Play with your children. Meditate. Think. Be.

Do something that doesn’t require a digital input.

At the end of your digital holiday take stock of the experience.
Is this something you would enjoy more regularly or periodically? Are there any changes that you need to make that could improve the quality of your life.

I have found when the noise dies down I am able to focus and put my efforts towards the 20% of things that will move the needle.
