Unhappy at work? Ask yourself these 4 questions.

You know the feeling. 

Dreading every minute of your commute into the office. 

Counting down the minutes until Friday at 6 pm. 

Wondering just how you got to this place–and whether you’ll be stuck like this forever. 

While being unhappy at work can feel isolating, you’re actually not alone. Current studies show that 66% of us aren’t engaged with our jobs.

Social media anxiety, time consumption and inability to stop engaging on it is a huge area of discussion in my productivity seminars and talks.

Some people refuse to realize the consequences of social media (SM) on them.

The fact that they never experienced anxiety or depression before SM says something.

Social media amplifies this anxiety because they WANT you to be engaged in the public defense of your ideas or the attacking of others. Never before have you been able to engage in a nonstop constant public defense of your egoic stories. Your ego secretly loves it and feeds off it, starving you of mindfulness. You can help but be sucked in to the deep, dank dark rabbit hole of it.

Please notice, before social media came along, you didn’t have this particular type of suffering in your life. It’s manufactured, amplified, shoved in your face and presented to you on a screen all day long.

Some experts advise taking tiny steps… aim low… and try to engage a little less every day in the public defense of yourself.

If you lack the self-control to regulate yourself and can’t stop engaging. I say delete the shit. End your weakness. Save yourself.

The Stoics Were The First To Talk About How To Maximize Your Productivity.

 

Writings from Socrates, Plato, Confucius, Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus and other philosophers remind us to master our time, focus, energy, mindfulness and attention to get things done.

How is stoicism relevant to being productive and getting meaningful work done?

The Stoics focus on two key things:

1) How can we lead a fulfilling and meaningful life?

2) How can we become better human beings?

How to do this today:

Ask yourself as you begin working on something… is this the best use of my time now?

Then, identify your high energy and focus times for you. Plug these items into the appropriate time slots so that you can maximize your time, energy and focus.

“Some things are within our power, while others are not. Within our power are opinion, motivation, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever is of our own doing; not within our power are our body, our property, reputation, office, and, in a word, whatever is not of our own doing.” — Epictetus

Ancient philosophers preach the importance of an action mindset, and against worrying unnecessarily in our pursuit of a better life.
