Getting Unplugged

Since marijuana is more productive than being addicted to Blackberries, it is time to figure out how to be more unplugged in a Web 2.0 world with digital everything ready to pounce on your focus. Especially since every web application is another ‘shiny thing’ to lose focus on.

I thought I’d create a list of how to get unplugged so that I could focus on just one thing at a time.

Than I ran into Brian Oberkirch at LikeItMatters and concluded that I didn’t need a new list: just use his list of 17 things to get unplugged. It’s called: trimming the attention sails.

If you work in a digital world, this will get you back to analog in a hurry.

I’m not doing all of them, but it’s a great list.
