Have you watched the “Social Dilemma” on Netflix yet? It explores the previously unknown, ignored, and dangerous human impact of social networking, with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations.
I spent two years doing the same, most notably, with many of the players featured in the documentary. While social networking and gaming have rewired our brains and bodies, what the documentary, and most other experts and approaches leave us without, is a solution.
I’m not a believer in abandoning tech. Nor do I believe that trying to get back to previous, pre-tech states is in our best interests. Instead, I set out to understand how to rewire the rewiring that made us beholden to the whims of popular tech. I wondered if the same techniques used to distract us could be used with the same tech to make us more creative, open, and happy.
Turns out that the answer is, yes.
I call it LifeScale. It’s about snapping out of the digital construct we’ve built for ourselves, to assess, truly, where we are in life and how it aligns, or doesn’t, with our aspirations. Then, we can scale our lives forward and upward…intentionally.
Before COVID (BC), in January 2020, I was fortunate enough to speak at Crea Digital Day in Geneva, Switzerland. In a very special presentation, I shared some of the secrets to LifeScaling. Now, I’m sharing them with you, here.
Thank you, mercí, to my dear friend Arnaud Grobet for making this amazing event come together and for the unforgettable memories with friends and family while in Geneva. #CDD20
