He was born in 1974. He had a good job and Family. But, he just passed away. I knew him.
Seeing his Obituary, I was nudged to think about live in a digitally connected world.
Technological inventions push different services at us all the time. Engaging and interesting services. They make us more busy and more connected. Have you thought of the cost of being always connected?
I am thinking of it now. I am connected 24/7 as I have a phone that is connected to the web. I wrote an article a few days ago on Why Every Blogger Needs a Smartphone. If these devices get the best of us, they can distrupt our lives and cost us a few of the things that should matter to us.
What is more important, things or people? When we love gadgets and use people, what does that make us? We sometimes want our family to understand that it's work. Finding the middle groud between our virtual/business relationships and people we care for is vital.
As I continue my participation in the 30 day challenge to pick up a good habit. I want to include one more; Live a richer life by limiting the number of times I am connected to the virtual world and connect more with people in the real world.
How do you balance being connected online and spending time with people in real life? Someone could make use of your approach.
Be part of the conversation and leave a comment. Thanks!
P.S. Logging off now. I need to make some vegetable soup. It's been a while I used the Kitchen.
