Do YOU have agency, or control, over your actions? If I told you I knew for a fact you didn’t, would you believe me?

If you believe, continue to read.

Look around are you safe? Safe, comfortable, calm, attentive, receptive, open, ready.

If so, continue to read:

In the coming days and weeks, your thoughts will often turn to the consideration of important decisions you have to make, and important problems for which you have as yet found no solution. Even when you are not consciously thinking about these topics, your mind will continue to deal with them so that, when your attention returns to them once more, you are going to be surprised and delighted at how many potentially useful ideas you are able to come up with; and some of these ideas are even likely to catch you by surprise at times, emerging into your awareness while you are thinking of something else.

They might even enter your dreams at night, or you might wake up with some of these new ideas in mind; but regardless of how they make their appearance, they are going to be very helpful and beneficial to you. Of course, You will always try to make sure that you have sufficient information on which to base any final decisions, and you will always want to check out these new ideas to make sure that they are practical, just as you would check out information from any other source.

You will also continue to be aware that sometimes the best decision is a decision to wait or to secure additional information before acting. But nevertheless, you are going to be surprised and pleased at how much more clearly and creatively you are going to be able to think, and at how much more confidently and effectively you will be able to deal with the issues and problems which lie before you.

Social Media Is an Action Word.

Social Media Is an Action Word.

You have probably heard of at least one of the following social media platforms:

LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Bumble, Twitch, Tumblr, Snapchat, WordPress, Tinder, YouTube, Twitter.

I don’t know if you noticed, but they all have a word of action in the title:

Twitter is the sound a bird makes when talking to other birds,

Twitch is a short sudden jerk,

Snap is the act of capturing the moment,

Chat is the act of talking,

TikTok is the sound of a moving clock,

Insta is informal for instant, and

Gram is old school for you got mail.

They all have this in common, because socialization requires action. To communicate one’s interest a bird “tweets”, to share one’s interest a person “snaps” a moment they experienced, and shares it with the ones they love. Therefore, every one of these media platforms are told we use as social animals to connect with one another.

Twitch is a sudden movement, or jerk, that is required when playing games with other gamers, and is likely a reason why it is called that. The ability to have quick reaction times when playing games gives one an advantage against another.

TikTok, pronounced Tick Tock in English, is the sound of a clock and if you are familiar with the platform you know that the recording limit is a few seconds tops. Lastly, Instagram is the instantaneous transference of a message, and in this case the message is visual.

I don’t really like Facebook, so I will not be talking about it, but feel free to add your take on it’s relevance in the comment section below.

These platforms are appealing, because they give us the ability to express our interests with other people, who’s opinions matter to us, in turn reaffirms our belief system and gives us validation increase the feel good chemicals in our brains; the one’s that give us pleasure.

Since these social media platforms give us pleasure we associate them with that feel good chemical, oxytocin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and we seek it often in attempt to retrieve the same feeling we had initially when we first used the platform. Unfortunately, with all addictions this is a craving that can never be completely fulfilled.

Therefore, social media platforms have grown tremendously as a source of revenue for companies, and as a source of connection between one another, giving us a collective conscious creating culture, order, and a sense of meaning to our sometimes chaotic existence.
