So, the Olympics are over. And since I’ve been checking the online newspapers pretty obsessively both because of that, and, it’s been a slow summer, I figured it was time to break my habit.
Not write the newspaper-adresses into the browser when I’m bored. Not check every five minutes (really, it doesn’t change much). Not have it on in the background. Plainly – just try to break a time-consuming habit.
Already, I feel myself be more effective at work.
I don’t mind telling you, though, that it’s been surprisingly hard.
Yesterday alone, there was 20 times (at least!) that I typed the address of a news-source into the address bar. Which is also why, I’m coming to realize that this kind of action is definitely necessary.
This decision came just in time for the backlash over the report over the July 22 reports. Instead of reading the news reports on the report, I went straight to the source, and read the report itself.
I figure I’m going to give this a go now for two weeks, and then I’m off for two weeks with very little internet time. By the time I get back to work in September – a new habit should be formed.
