I recently saw a great Goalcast video on my timeline of Lynn Gribble talking about your cell phone and how it increases your anxiety. It caught my interest as I am on my computer or my phone almost all the time. I need to do a better job of balancing my time with this. I definitely think using your phone and social media is not a bad thing, you just have to set limits. Just like anything in life, it can become an addiction if you don’t. I have also noticed recently that movies, music, and entertainment have lost creativity. We rarely sit in our thoughts to actually think. Most of the movies that are in the theaters are just remakes or comic books. I am desperately waiting for someone to come up with something creative like Forrest Gump or Jurassic Park. A movie based on a creative idea and is brand new! I think besides us as a society not sitting in our thoughts, we have also lost our imaginations along the way. We see everything right away, we don’t have to wait, and we are programming all of our day with actual activities or not giving our minds rest as we scroll along mindlessly everyday. Check this video out, and see how it challenges you or makes you think. This is a great devotion or community builder to do with your staff teams. If you have never heard of Goalcast, check their videos out at Goalcast.com for more awesome devotions and community builders.
I will add this video to the Leadership Tools section. Check out my website for more awesome ideas.
