Looking at social media from detached view.

Looking at social media from detached view.

Deep work rules focus on multiple steps on how you can achieve your goals.

Nowadays, it has become normal to have a social media account. This normalcy is alarming because it’s a big distraction to our daily lives. You can’t help but scroll daily and endlessly.

The moment you open your eyes, you start scrolling to see what your friends, families, acquaintances, and even what total strangers are up to.

In short social media is consuming up your valuable time which you should channel in more valuable and productive work.

Craftsman Approach.

Craftsman Approach.

Your ultimate goal should be of becoming the very best at whatever you do and only way to doing it; is giving your undivided and intentional focus to your work.

List down two to three activities that you require to achieve this goal in your personal as well as your professional life.

This will instantly give you a grip to start with your deep work process, and how you can do networking much more effectively.

Ask yourself, what tools do you need to achieve this goal?

Packing Party.

Packing Party.

The Packing Party Approach inspired by Ryan Nicodemus—a film producer who once packed up his entire apartment and only began taking out only what he needed.

In no time, he realized that the stuff he actually used made up of only a few things of his total possessions.

The realization more than validated his decision to downsize and declutter.

Applying this strategy to our social media habit could look like not using social media for 30 days and assess how we feel after this.

Please understand this very carefully

Please understand this very carefully

The two important questions to ask yourself when you decided to quit are:

1. Would the last thirty days have been notably better if I had been able to use this service?’

2. Did people care that I wasn’t using this service?

If the answer is ‘no’ to both questions after 30 days of being offline, quit.

This is a great strategy for social detox that will immensely free up your time and attention to focus deeply on your tasks.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone
