Stay Up All Night Night Day
What time do you get to sleep on a week day? It seems more and more people are losing sleep due to being up all night on their cell phones. Is it ruining our daily sleep and making us less productive? What are your thoughts about it?
I beleive we need a day without cell phones like back in the days before they were invented, everyone did their own thing, now everyone is watching what everyone is doing, copying what others are doing and following what others are doing!
The 3 tpyes of people in the world, ones who wait for things to happen, one who watch for things to happen and one who make things happen. Well with so much data, content, photos & videos online. Now here’s my version of the quote: “Thier’s ones who follow things to happen, ones who watch things happen and ones who copy things to try to make happen”
Phil Lim

Have a great day, now we need take you to listening to what’s about to happen, songs of the day! 🙂
