I deleted my Twitter account because it was a big suck of my time and was my go to non productive distraction from completing the task at hand. If you know me from Twitter and want to reach out to me, my Telegram is @jdanielricher.

I deleted my Facebook account (again) because I don't even use it really and also all that disgusting stuff Zucc does with your data. I have everyone's contacts on there that actually care about me anyways.

I *uninstalled* Spotify to reset my brain. Up to the point when I was 15 or 16, I did not posses technology. I did not have a phone. I did not have a laptop. I didn't have video games. I pretty much lived in my mind. The only way I listened to music was by going down to the library or using the family computer and pulling up Youtube, and for the longest time we didn't have internet. When I wanted to hear a song, I played it in my mind. Recently, I have become pretty addicted to drowning out my inner thoughts with music. I despised silence. It made me very uncomfortable, yet this is exactly how I lived 5 years ago.

    @jdaniel_richer Bold step to delete all three! I lose lots of time to Twitter. I keep facebook to connect with friends and family back home, but < 5 minutes per day. I remember just putting on the same CD for days and days and doing random offline stuff. Hmm...

    @jdaniel_richer
    Smart move. Walt Mussberg, famous Tech Writer since beginning of Internet quit Facebook also.

    I was off all social media for 4 years. It's a tough addiction to break. You'll need to find another dopamine rush. Sky diving, maybe?

    Nah-build some businesses. No better dopamine rush than watching your business and your bank account grow each day.
