I haven't been on Facebook or Instagram for about 2 weeks.
I need to focus.
See, living in Bangkok, Facebook and Instagram was like the "center of the world" as most communication is via Facebook messenger (or LINE), people promoted and found events via Facebook,
and to build a personal brand, entrepreneurs, investors, and small business owners spent a lot of time sharing stories, pictures, and thoughts, on Facebook and Instagram.
Well, I'm temporarily out of Bangkok, and far away from any startup environment. This is a good and bad thing. Bad, because I may be "missing out" on events and making connections,
whether it's with customers and friends; but it's good because I have quite a few things to accomplish before I return back to Asia.
Things like, completing my book. Spending time with my family, and other essential things that must be accomplished.
And being off social media, taking a break from the "virtual world" I have gained a lot more clarity.
Plus, being in Bangkok for about 3 years, people know who I am, where they can find me, and if they really want to find me, they can call or email me (though I still check my Facebook messenger).
Since my brief absence, I still receive messages from my customers (they keep me motivated), and few friends back in BKK.
So, if you are wondering where I've been, I'm here, just not on social media :)
