Mobile Phones.  Since the beginning of these coming to existence, we have benefitted from them and at the same time, they have caused us issues.  

You’re probably reading this from you phone right now after browsing for 2 or 3 hours without realizing.  And now you have no time to do the actual things in your life that are important.  Like play with your child who’s trying to drag you off this device but instead, you want to quickly run through your feeds on Insta or Twitter to ensure you’ve caught up with the world.  

Why do we feel like we need to do this?  Catching up with the news, trends and latest photos on our feeds – the funnies we want to share with our friends who are most likely following the same page as you anyway.  Or you want to find that meme or video that you can resonate with.  

I realized that people have become prisoners of their phones – which is why they are called cell phones

Did you know, that the average person using a phone takes at least 2 hours away from their day?  And its getting worse month by month.  New apps, new ways to communicate, new ways to share media.  

Relationships fail due to phone usage.  We know this – lets not sugar coat it.  Phones are ruining lives.  Family time.  Why?  Because we cannot control the time we spend on the devices.  Nor can we control our minds and where they take us.  

Talk to Coach Qadir.  I’m going to help you help yourself.  Empower you with knowing that it isn’t so bad cutting down your phone usage.  Capture those special moments, thats ok – but don’t obsess with selfies to a point where you forget the main reason for your existence.  Your life purpose.  See my as your treatment center for addiction.  Let me help you.  

I look forward to having a conversation with you just like I have been with my clients who I am helping give back so much time into their lives.  

Start your journey today and get coached by me.  Coach Qadir.  

I have a gift of time, and I want to share that with you – should you wish to take it.
