Eliminate the newsfeed

The biggest enemy of productivity is, without a doubt, the newsfeed.

Yes, the newsfeed, not social media, is the enemy.

The newsfeed is based on the following principles:

  1. Hooking people using psychological loops
  2. Mindless consumption of content
  3. Feeling of activity using “passive” consumption
  4. Showing irrelevant “relevant” content
  5. Social evolutionary behavior that isn’t social

While these are fancy terms, it’s important to understand that browsing the newsfeed is one of the most unproductive activities you can do that is also easily habitual.

Most of you already have developed this habit.

There is no hack here but you will have to completely ELIMINATE your newsfeeds – be it Facebook or Instagram.

And trust me, you won’t miss a thing.
