I’ve long admired Vala Afshar and Ray Wang. I mean, who doesn’t? They’re each, in their own right, the voice of the future when it comes to all things enterprise, customers, employees and “future of…” That’s why when they asked if I would join them to talk about technology’s impact on creativity and productivity and how its affecting professional and personal lives, I said, “YES!”
In this short episode (<10 minutes), we talk about the effects of digital distractions in our lives and work.
Slack, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Texts, email, Likes, Comments, Followers, et al, they’re robbing us of time, reflection, creativity and ultimately true individuality and influence. But, it’s hard to see because everything we do, is normal and even celebrated. We’re more followed and popular than ever before. There’s no going back now or is there?
Actually, there’s a way to slingshot forward. I call it “Lifescaling.”
Please watch and consider joining me on this journey?
