Now that the Mardi Gras parties are over, Catholics (and others) are looking at 40 days of Lent, with self-denial replacing wild exuberance. Well, here's a modest proposal: why not give up some seductive technologies that may waste more time than they save? bMighty.com came up with 8 likely candidates.Even if you don't practice Lent, it may be time to ask yourself if you really want to keep doing all the technology stuff that currently fills your days. The key, of course, is not to get rid of the technologies that make you truly productive, just those "indulgences" that actually get in the way of what really needs to be done.
DON'T MISS: 8 Tech Indulgences To Give Up For Lent Frankly, once the bMighty editors started looking, it was all too easy to come up with possible suspects. We started with the obvious: How much time do you "invest" in checking your e-mail every 37 seconds? Is that really necessary, or are you just trying to reassure yourself that you're really busy and important? Similarly, how many e-mail accounts to do you maintain? How many e-mail accounts do you actually need? We think the answer is 3: One for work, one for personal stuff, and one to give out when you've gotta supply an e-mail address but don't really want anyone to bother you. But that's only the beginning. You also can find out: Which social networking site may be more addictive than helpful? What online service seems quick but can suck up hours of your time? What to do about information you thought you wanted, but really don't? Where is the place where you can get the most work done? Check it out. You'll feel better if you do.
