My Digital Divide

I cannot be trusted when I use a digital device.

I sit at my computer with a thought of looking up some detail or sending a short email and while I am there my mind decides that I can do 2 other things really quick on Amazon or YouTube. And before long I have forgotten what I sat down to do.

Today I instituted a personal rule.

I will write down all of the things I need to do with a screen. I will then decide which screen is best to use. I will sit and do those tasks.

I will keep my bullet journal open and any new thoughts of potential actions that need a screen I will capture in my daily log to be processed later applying the same rule above.

Technology is an improved means to an unimproved ends. Thoreau
