‘Today’s been the worst day of my life’
Hmmm sounds deep
‘I spent all day on the computer doing nothing.’
I completely understood.
Have you ever spent days on youtube? Or watching people get knocked out on Worldstar? Or reading the Daily Mail (*shudders*)?
It gets to 8pm and you wonder where the day went.
Another day in the books. To do list extended.
Is it time to have ‘the talk?’
I realised that I spend more time with technology than actual people.
And just like my mum told me when I went for that extra chocolate bar
‘Too much of anything is good for nothing’
The Sound Of Silence
‘I think, therefore I am’ – Rene Descartes
Have you ever just shut the laptop and sat there? Put the phone away and gone for a walk?
I couldn’t for a long time. Technology allowed me to run away from my thoughts.
It was a diversion.
But if I couldn’t open space to think, then I could never find myself.
And find what I have to offer.
The Break Up
‘Out of great silence comes great creativity’ – James Altucher
The internet is a platform for creators. However it’s not where the creation happens.
It doesn’t happen on Facebook.
It happens in the silence. Which creates the idea.
The Make Up?
I’m not perfect. I still struggle to pull away.
Another video. Another tweet. Another email.
But like all good relationships, me and Mrs T have to spend some time a part.
So if you ever feel you’re getting too clingy, take a walk. Read a book. Talk to a friend.
And maybe, just maybe, absence will make the heart grow fonder……
