All this kept me thinking about my digital forward motion. Simplicity, right? So, how about if you and I take this moment of the year when we're wrapping things up to unclutter. How about
- unsubscribing to e-lists we're part, clutter our mail boxes and we waste precious time everyday to delete the messages without even opening them?
- making some participation priorities? What is feasible right now for us in terms of connections, active participation, conversations? Which lists, blogs, communities should we contribute to? Which nodes of our network really add value to us, personally and professionally?
- deciding for online spaces that help us be more productive and efficient? Which spaces are only time consumers and don't really add any value to us?
- dumping old concepts and embracing the new? How about making a detachment exercise?
It's also time to rethink my google reader architecture. How can I make the most out of my reader?
As for my detachment exercise, I started a big one. My husband is ripping all our CDs and we'll have a Media Center at home. This means we're giving all the CDs away. It's a big step for me, but time to move forward. It's my biggest challenge now, to overcome this feeling of attachment mainly in a period of moving, in which we need to decide what stays and what we let it got. I guess it's a perfect moment to just let certain things go.
How about you? How could you make your digital life more pleasant, productive and efficient?
Let us remember. Simplicity is key. It lightens our souls, let us connect even more tightly, and make us laugh more often. Which digital practices will you box and let it go? How can you make even wider, open online spaces without sacrificing what matters to you?
It would be great to hear your tricks and ideas.
