We’re so creative, so much more
We’re high above but on the floor
It’s not a habit, it’s cool, I feel alive
If you don’t have it you’re on the other side
(K’s Choice -Not an Addict)
I remember defending fiercely I was not.
But I was.
I used to be an addict. Since I had my first experience with it in the early nineties, I was sold on the spot -immediately and completely drawn into it. I saw what I could be with it, what it meant. And allthough it started with an innocent first try, it soon grew to be one of the biggest obsessions that took over most of my life. And you know what they say: It gets worse before it gets better.
But that’s an easy thing to say.
Just try it.
Finally -after fighting it every day for 25 years (!), I managed to end it, or at least control it. I admit I have my weaker moments, but overall I’m in control. Since people keep asking me what my secret is, to overcome one of the worst habits most of us seem to want to control, let me share it here with you how to control email.
Yes. Email. I’m talking about your Inbox addiction
First things first. How can you recognize the symptoms of your Inbox addiction? That’s easy. You spend way too much time checking your Inbox to see if anyone is reaching out to you, asking for your help, including you in a conversation, all that. Worse is, that you actually start reading ALL those mails because you’re afraid you might miss something. Although you consciously know that most mails are not urgent or even important, you still fall into the trap of pampering your ego, feeling all so important about being wanted. Well, anyway, however serious your case is: shake it, get rid of it. Just kill it.
Get help. I know I did. Here’s how: iloveheadroom.com.
And the rest is history.
