Organic Communication: How To Keep 'iDisorders' From Overflowing

Organic Communication: How To Keep 'iDisorders' From Overflowing | Unplug | Scoop.it
Career skills require a more organic form of communication than many people today are wired for.


"Increases in narcissism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and depression are increasingly correlated with frequent use of technology.  Yet the person who can succeed in our soft and uncertain economy is still the one who can focus on one task, follow through on a commitment, and excel in face-to-face communication."

craig daniels's insight:

A great first step to integrate down time from always-on technology interaction is to shut everything off 60 minutes before bedtime. Just give yourself that little bit of space to meditate, read or talk with someone face to face about your day.


Nothing radical of painful will happen to you if you take this step but, I'm pretty sure some positive results will start showing up rather quickly.

Achieve Unlimited Happiness by Making Changes: Interview W/ Gabrielle Bernstein:

Achieve Unlimited Happiness by Making Changes: Interview W/ Gabrielle Bernstein: | Unplug | Scoop.it
Gabrielle Bernstein I recently spoke to the wondering Gabrielle Bernstein, who is the New York Times bestselling author of May Cause Miracles: A 40-Day Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Radical Change and Unlimited Happiness.


"Like any effective practice, true transformation occurs with daily repetition. Begin with a 40-day commitment and start experiencing positive results immediately."

craig daniels's insight:

In this interview Gabrielle Bernstein points to 3 important things you need to do for success. 1. Love what you do. 2. Be authentic. 3. Don't be afraid to ask for more. These are all really good touchstones to remind ourselves just what path we are on.


It's easy to let the  distractions created by media and technology move us from our path and take the air out of our dreams. I'm reminded how easy it is to get caught up in the virtual world to the detriment of relationships and interactions with people in the physical world.


I'd add one more item to her list, 4. Unplug frequently and look around at your life. Practicing mindfulness will help you to soar on whatever path you have chosen.
