There was a time when our personal lives were truly personal. We never declared to others whom we were meeting, what we were doing on an everyday basis, where we were going etc…. and then we had a professional life which was very formal and goal oriented…We were working to get money to fulfill the needs of the family….We also had a social life…where meeting others at social gatherings was not a necessity but a change from normal routine.
We do a lot of social meetings online or via social channels…
Our professional life seems to be incomplete without participating in social channels…
and our personal life is painted in various colors by others on social channels….(through likes, comments etc etc…)
Are we setting the right boundaries and limits for these three aspects of life?
Are we really in the need of getting constant affirmation from everyone about our interests and activities?
How do we cope up with the ever increasing demands of building a personal, professional and social brand?
Does it increase our productivity?
These are questions to ask ourselves…. No one should and can set these limits for us. We should define our life – and our personal boundaries…
How hard is it to spend a day without interacting on social media?
It’s not a bad thing to do…as long as your goals are not taking a back seat.
The world is very result-oriented. They look at ‘What has someone achieved?’ and not ‘How he achieved it?’…
So, if someone can spend 20 hours on social media and still achieve milestones in life….he/she will be praised.
It’s for you to define the ‘time limits’, the ‘topics’ and the ‘friends and people’ in your life.
The day you can do that….you have overcome the pressures of social media and built your own very personal brand.~ That isolates?/identifies? you from the rest of the crowd.
