Off the grid

June 30th, 2009 · No Comments

I haven’t made any post for a few days because I was completely “off the grid”. We spent a few days in a small resort near Port Townsend in the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. No Internet connections, no emails, no computer access, and no web surfing.

We swam, played tennis, and spend some quiet time sitting there, reading, and doing nothing.

I felt relaxed, peaceful, and re-charged. I think for any knowledge worker who spends a lot of time in front of computer and on the internet, he/she should take an internet holiday once every six months (or even more frequently).

In the age of Twitter, Facebook and Instant Messenger, a lot of folks are struggling to find quality quiet time for themselves without interruption.

Turn off your computer, get off the internet, go out for a walk, chat with someone in person, put away your iPhone/Blackberry/Smart Phone, start an “media diet” for a few days – you’ll find peace, new perspectives, and sanity. 🙂
