If you didn’t see my previous post, for the last 30 days I gave myself a challenge, that I will not go to Facebook, Twitter, and social media in general, that I will minimize mails activities and try to do something more useful.
Well, my challenge was successful. Honestly, I expected it will be.
What can I say now, after this challenge:
- You will not miss anything really important if you’re not on Facebook or Twitter – important news were getting to me in other ways
- You will feel better without so much not-necessary information
- You will have more time for other activities
- You can get Twitter followers without tweeting – for one month without Twitter, I got 19 followers.
I enjoyed time without Facebook/Twitter/Social Media, and in the moments I felt like opening Facebook or Twitter, I would take a book. I started with 100$ Startup. I have read it completely, I am not so satisfied with the book itself, but more about this in other post.
After this one, I started a new book – The Gambler from Fyodor Dostoyevsky. I read this book as well, it’s a great one.
Parallel with this, I decided to take course on Python. I started with Learn Python The Hard Way, and until now, I passed more than half.
Since I “speak” more than few programming languages, learning Python is not something hard. It’s even pretty easy. So, after I finish the course I mentioned (btw, it’s free! ), I will start with reading a new book on learning Python.
I think that 30-day challenge is a great way to motivate yourself to do things you want to do, to try something you never tried before, etc.
I will for sure give myself next 30-day challenge really soon.
