New efforts

As new technologies and new ideas are created, some things that are old still make sense.

Text or call?

Email or stop by?

Facebook or Twitter?

Write a letter and send via the postal service?

They all present a different way of connecting. I love technology and the opportunities it brings but wow, always being on? There was a time when you could be by yourself creating, meditating or working on a project but today there is so much opportunity for interruption – good and bad.

As I have written this, I’ve had several email alerts, phone calls and texts let alone who knows what’s happening on Facebook…….

So I make a new effort:

– to respond in a timely manner

– to NOT be always on

– to have patience with everyone

– to ask for patience from others

Going off to practice and be disconnected for a bit.
