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.
