The internet is the life line for some of us. I am on the internet constantly. I am checking our website to see how it is performing.
So when I talked to Pamela Hamilton (My Mom) the other day and she said that she wouldn’t have access to the internet this week I was blown away. I couldn’t imagine going a week without Google! She is finishing her last week of her winter vacation. She is enjoying the beaches and luxuries of the resort life. I can understand not checking the internet constantly this week but to not have access at all?!?!
We just launched our e-book, How to Say Goodbye to the Drama and just finished the next two. We have been communicating for weeks via the internet.
We also launched our campaign with Elite Book Promotions to build up our YouTube Channel and it is really starting to perform too. All of this is exciting and we always celebrate each milestone. So when she told me that she would be off-line for the rest of the week I thought, “Wow, that’s crazy”.
The more I thought about it the more I realized that I am the one that’s crazy. I have become addicted to the internet. I spend hours on it. I am creating books or videos. I am creating marketing and learning tools. I am researching how to do things like making my eBook kindle friendly. I never take a break from it for more than 2hr of awake time. Otherwise if I am not sleeping I am checking it at some point every couple of hours. I even check it while I am at the gym.
The internet is the greatest thing.
It gives us instant access to all kinds of information. But it’s a tool just like money is a tool. It shouldn’t become the most important thing in your life. It shouldn’t be so important that when you are doing other things you need to stop and check it and make sure you didn’t miss anything.
So I hope one day I can be like Pamela and take a day or two to have a break from the internet. But that’s 48hrs off-line, maybe I will shoot a little lower, maybe I will try 8hrs…OK 4 1/2hrs…in a row!
