I found the fantastic personal website of Derek Sivers yesterday. Just from the brief look I've taken around the website, I can tell that there is a bunch more reading to be done. While browsing I stumbled on to his post about daydreaming. While short, I found it interesting as I've largely stopped daydreaming. There is always some form of stimulus between computers, phones, and TVs that there is no room for boredom. Even when I can get hooked on a book, which feels like a productive use of time, I am still consuming information. The final line of this post has been bouncing around in my head since I read it:
We’ve all had plenty of input. It’s fun to let your mind direct its own entertainment.
Less input, more output.
And, since I don't think I've actually committed to it in writing, my plan for these posts is this.
- I will post everyday for 30 days straight.
- After that, there will be no fixed schedule but this is where all of my shorter posts will live. The main blog is where all longer form writing will go.
