I think I’m going to try a new personal rule.
Unless there’s a specific task I must complete: No computers after 8:00pm.
My vacation was so wonderful and part of the reason for this was the complete absence of internet, e-mail, and news. So I’m going to try and turn off my computer at 8:00pm. This will, hopefully, keep me reading, moving, cooking, and expanding my mind more than I would with a monitor or television.
It’s such a strange balance. I love the internet… but I find it draining as well.
I think I’d much prefer a simple life. These computer goals stay right in line with dreams to rid myself of excess possessions. I’d love to get rid of all those things I just never use. Organization, cleanliness, and escape from technology fit well together. Maybe not ‘escape from technology’ as much as a lack of dependency on it.
How would you rate yourself on organization, cleanliness, and computer/television usage?
