These days I graze. Not food so much but words. I used to just read, read books, the paper, but these days I graze all over the place and it’s nearly all online.
I read the SMH online in the mornings over breakfast on my work iPad – when will the SMH charge for the app and will I pay it? I read twitter feeds often during the day and Facebook updates less often. I read som ebooks online although I still read the majority of books in paper. But I also Google frequently all manner of things during the day, read my feeds which include overseas papers and magazines, look at YouTube and graze of a huge scattering or smattering of “stuff”
I am definitely reading fewer books though, and that kind of upsets me. It also means I am not writing much either and that bothers me also.
I feel distracted – flitting from tweets or feeds or links or news stuff – and am not completely sure what to do about it.
I do get to the end of the year and start thinking about what I could do better…and in this area – I would love to…..
Love to what?
I think read a little more judiciously, get through a few more books, allocate some time in the day for just checking twitter and other feeds, instead of allowing myself at times to be distracted and just…well graze a little too much.
I don’t want a scattering or a smattering but a bit more depth….
