hurry up, slow down! — 1 Comment

  1. Ah, your time off blogging might be a sign of things to come. I spent a lot of time over the last 10 years of social, sorting priorities, dealing with time management issues that are reactionary not chosen. No knock to my digital friends, there is just not enough time in a day for me to have a life with 5 kids, a wife, a dog, clients, events, coaching and all of those things on the list of what’s important. So I had to choose.

    Just because some uncreative headline somewhere on the web says I need to do these 4 things to get more social sharing, because others are blogging, post, retweet, meeting, yada yada yada, to mean seemed like one huge digital treadmill and I decided to step off. If others derive from digital absence means not worthy then so be it. I smile as I see the social pioneers who were single and carefree when all this started now have their “time” managed by kids, relationships, and priorities.

    As I write this I’m listening to Scott Simon discuss the death of his 84 year old mother (follow him at @scottsimon where he tweeted from her death bed ). He says we are all dictated to by the calendar, and realizing life is short, even a life of 84 years, should regulate how we spend our time. Choices may be different with that perspective. You may decide to enjoy the moment instead of tweeting it. I won’t go into my choices, suffice to say, having it all is someone else’s phrase to selling books, but choosing all that you want is a more practical reality.

    the picture above says it all, and your frequency of digital engagement may well change, so be it, that’s your book of life to write. It’s the only book that matters in this digital life. Bless your family and your smiles.
