I think I’ve started to develop an Internet myopia, where may sense of gratitude relies heavily on the Internet. I wake up in the morning and the first thing I do is check my Facebook and feed my chickens on Castle Story (a new dangerous addiction). I get home from work and peruse my Google reader while eating chips. Once I’ve done my regular design blog browsing, inspirational reading, fashion gawking and Googling any other topic which comes to mind I start watching random YouTube videos, often revisiting old ones.
It becomes an endless search for satisfaction or maybe for something to fill up time or a distraction… Before I know it I have a headache, some form of eyes train and have lost 3 hours, which could’ve been used to meditate, study, make a proper meal, exercise(!) or create.
As a result, you’re not really distracting yourself from what you’re running away from – it will come back to bite you. Most of the time it’s not filling your time with something useful, something which can improve your life. Hey don’t get me wrong the Internet is an endless resource for inspiration, but sitting around all day looking at what others are doing is not going to get you anywhere unless you’re doing it.
