How Technology Has Caused Us to Procrastinate More Than Ever

The technology industry is focused on making our lives better through convenience and automation. Why else would there be an endlessly line of created products with the goal of increasing efficiency and user ease? Other products are ridiculously expensive when they’re launched but their prices hugely dip when a better version gets released yet people still clamor to buy such products even if they know the price difference later on. Technology has indeed become one of us.

Due to technological advancement, we all end up procrastinating more than ever because tasks and activities that we used to do manually are now being automated or at least done in a shorter amount of time with less effort. Even though part of the goal of technology advancement is to give us more time in order to allow us to do more during the day, some of us are getting the wrong notion of it. They end up wasting time instead of taking advantage of it. Technology’s over-stimulation has led us to underutilize our cognitive abilities.

Technological advancement is a gift to humanity but if we tend to use it the wrong way then it may take a toll on our lives in a negative way as well. This is why we should be weary about these interactions. We shouldn’t let technology dominate our lives but rather see them as tools that can make our lives more convenient. If we have activities and tasks that require immediate attention, then we should recognize that and not be distracted by any form of technological interventions.Focus on the task at hand by turning off notifications, put the mobile phone on silent mode or shut off gadgets if necessary.
