Pay for It

In Singapore, I visited a club where you pay for every filler word you utter on stage. $0.50 per an “ah”. Guess what: Most speakers are pretty good at keeping their “ah-count” close to zero.

“I’m spending too much time on my phone, but don’t know what to do about it!” says everyone and their uncle.

Well, what if you paid for it?

Here’s an idea:

Set yourself a “target” amount of minutes of “screen time” you allow yourself this week. Call it “screen budget”. For every minute you’re over – pay a fee.

If you’ll have trouble figuring out how much and to whom, get in touch – I’ll give you a good price and my account number.
