You see, I remember when email was something you only checked once, MAYBE twice per day, because you paid for your internet connection by the minute, and because it was painfully slow.
I used to be able to sit down for hours at a time and just read. No distractions. No interruptions. Just read.
I don't know if I'm just getting older or what, but I find myself utterly distracted by technology. I'm not some luddite either. In my day job, I run an IT department. Computers are my thing.
But they're taking over my life. Television, computers. Taking over.
So I'm going to do an experiment. I'm going to turn my telephone back into a dumb phone. No more email, no more internet. I'm going to turn my computer into a glorified typewriter.
For the rest of July, I'm only going to check the Internet one time per day. I'll have an hour to check emails, reply, do my Facebooking, and check the news. One hour. That is all.
I'll let you know how it works out.
