Things To Do Instead Of Facebook #16: Relearn How To Do A Few Things

Maybe this would be a good time to take a step back and reconnect with the real world.  Instead of texting a friend this week, try calling them--there's a phone function on your phone as well that allows you to use verbal communication.  Try enjoying a moment without taking a selfie and posting it.  Go on a date and leave your phone at home.  Turn off all the devices and just think for 30 minutes in a quiet place.  You may find it remarkable that you are able to reconnect by disconnecting first.

Things To Do Instead Of Facebook #15: Take A Chance

"I've missed more than 9,000 shorts in my career.  I've lost almost 300 games.  26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and I missed.  I've failed over and over and over again in my life, and that's why I succeeded."

~Michael Jordan 

Fear holds a lot of people back, and stops us from taking risks.  One thing most people have in common is a fear of failure, but as John Paul Jones said so well, so many years ago, "Those who will not risk, cannot win."  Nothing ventured, nothing gained.  Don't let fear stop you from thinking big and doing big things.  People who never fail haven't done very much.

Things To Do Instead Of Facebook #14: Thin The Herd By Using Unfollow And Unfriend!

A lot of what I've come to dislike about Facebook these days is the drama, the politics, and the rants of people that should be spending more time in the real world and less time sharing every silly thought.  Well, there is a great way to filter that stuff out of your life.  If you don't want that stuff popping up every day, learn how to use the unfollow function.  You're still friends, you can still see what they post if you decide to, but you don't have to deal with their crazy stuff every single day.

The other choice is more permanent.  Life is short, and if there are those on your friends list that don't add anything to your life and only seem to bring you down--it might be time to let them go.  I hate to hurt anyone's feelings, but a lot of people take Facebook way too seriously (not to mention themselves).  They live on making passive aggressive comments on your page.  They seem to relish creating drama for the sake of drama by posting controversial views, then trying to drag you into their chaos.  Let them go . . . you'll thank yourself for it later.
