By day, I’m an Internet marketing professional.
By night, I’m an Internet junkie.
While I can’t do much to reduce my Internet dependency at work, I can do something about it at home. And perhaps, when I do, I’ll rediscover the gift of time.
It’s ironic, isn’t it? How can it be that I never seem to have enough time to . . .
- read books
- write letters
- keep my house clean
- mow the lawn
- do the laundry
- read the Bible
- spend time outside
- play with my kids
- cook proper meals
- get together with friends
- call my mother-in-law (Sorry, Brenda!)
. . . yet, somehow, I can always find a spare hour or two (or five) to play around on the Internet?
So, this will be our adventure for this week:
Disable the Internet access on all home computers for seven days.
We switched off the wifi at 10:00 p.m. last night, and by the time I fell asleep an hour later, I was already starting to feel some mild separation anxiety.
This could be a long week.
