change one thing

by Frank Martin

Often there is one habit that, when recognised, and addressed, will act as a kind of tipping point. Its often so obvious we don’t even notice it. Often for those of us in our twenties and thirties, this relates in some way to technology.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m no luddite. Tech is a powerful tool, but, as the Minimalists like to say, you can use a chainsaw as a tool or a weapon, a positive, creative object, or a destructive one. Modern tech can be used to learn valuable skills like meditation, & foreign languages, organize your life with calendar and to-do apps, read all the books with apps like Kindle or Nook. Technology can also be an incredible time waster, getting us lost in youtube, two dots, twitter, facebook. The trick is to focus more on the former, less on the latter, and enforce limits on yourself, so it doesn’t take over your life.
