So I’ve spent the entire day in front of a computer. And I’ll probably spend a great deal of this evening in front of a computer too.
From writing emails, to the usual Facebooking, writing this blog (as you can see) and, at some point, chatting to the other half (we’re not odd – well, not that odd – we don’t live together… though I often wonder if we’d still use MSN to communicate if we did?).
Anyway, I digress…
Sometimes we all need to walk away from the technology or it can become the centre of our lives.
Yes, I love technology. But, as I often say it’s not for the technology itself but for what it allows me to do – both in my work life and personally. But there is a danger sometimes of the technology – and the possibilities – ruling our lives. Just because I can check my email every hour of the day and night on my iPhone – do I need to?
Sometimes, we all need to disconnect the broadband – and go for a walk. Or down to the pub. Or read a book (you know, on paper not an iPad or Kindle). Take it from me, the world keeps turning.
So put down your laptop. Step away from your netbook. And do something else.
And I will. Later… I promise.
