How To Manage Modern Life

Recently, I stumbled across a very wise man while listening to a podcast. His name is Dr. Ned Halloway. He’s recognized as the top ADD & ADHD psychologist in the world.

He opened my eyes to a big problem that 90% of businesspeople and entrepreneurs have.

Welcome to the world
of ADHD

ADHD can be good, if you learn how to harness it… crippling if you don’t.

According to Dr. Halloway, we’ve lost the ability to stay on task. Most people are chasing their tails all day, distracted by their electronic gadgets.

Rarely does good focus happen at work.

Instead, our best ideas happen in the shower. That’s because, so far, nobody has invented a waterproof smartphone.

Dr. Halloway says, “thinking” is a dying art.

He believes we must create conditions where our brains can work best. These days, no matter where we are, we can be reached.

We’re constantly being interrupted and distracted, and most of it is a result of our own actions.

We’ve become addicted to interruption. We like it that way. We’ve become conditioned to it, to the point where “we need it”.

Our phones are like a jar of M & M’s. Or worse… cocaine.

There’s something irresistible about an unopened message. We’ve allowed ourselves to be seduced by that jar of M & M’s.

We’ve become conditioned to constantly checking our phones for texts and emails, even when nobody is trying to reach us.

Dr. Halloway calls the process
“screen sucking.”

Google and Facebook call it “brain hacking.”

Brain hacking is very dangerous.

Recently, ’60 Minutes ran a segment about ‘brain hacking.’ Silicone Valley is hard at work to make sure it continues. They want us to stay addicted. It’s worth billions to them.

Silicone Valley doesn’t care what brain hacking is doing to our minds. They want us hooked on Facebook. They want us on Google.

And they’re winning the game.

All day long, you probably say to yourself, “I’m just going to quickly check my email or Facebook. An hour later, you’re still there.

Are you addicted to your
smartphone?

We’ve allowed technology to take control of our lives and behavior.

For most of us, the thought of closing those boundaries is unthinkable.

Putting our phones away is like trying to stop smoking.

I urge you to take the test.

Put your phone away for an hour or two. Turn it off. Put yourself “back in charge.”

It’s important you realize how much brainpower you’re giving away.

If you’re always available, people will take advantage of it. They’ll snatch every minute you have.

Dr. Halloway says, establish boundaries so you can take back control of your life.

Go ahead, take the test. See if you’re addicted. If you are, today’s the day to start making changes. Your income and sanity depend on it.
