I’ve resolved to significantly scale back my Facebook time. I’ve also gone and cut off about half of my ‘friends’ there. At the end of the day, about 10% of the time I get useful information from my friends about what’s going on in their lives. There’s maybe about another 10% of interesting local or global news shared. The other 80% of the stuff on Facebook is filled with garbage and black-holes of time. Don’t get me wrong, the 80% is fun and a nice stress release. But I need to heed my own words of advice and grow up.
I’ve also resolved to spend more time with my wife and children. This would be more quality time and not just time occupying the same geography. For the last 3 years, I’ve been finishing my MBA and was just used to being in ‘Daddy working’ mode. It is now time to re-acquaint myself with my family.
