“The problem with the internet: it prevents us from boredom and all its many advantages.”

Alain de Botton (via his Twitter)

I sometimes wonder when I will get a day when there is no computer, no screen time, no email to answer, no jobs to do.

A day when I don’t know what I’m going to do. When I can just take things as they come. And maybe even think up something new.

Sometimes I wonder if all this new digital work is robbing us of creative down time. The best time.

  1. Absolutely, Phil.

    You have to unplug, if even for a few hours a week just to nap, draw, write, catch up on yourself.

    It is impossible to unplug. once you’ve made yourself constantly available, it becomes an expectation.
