On renewal and priorities — Break from Blogging, June 4 3, 2005

In 48 hours, we have seen posts from Lawrence Lessig and Joi Ito reminding us that life is about more than blogging, about more than presentations, about more than being on the road 250 days a year.
What have we gotten ourselves into? Two of the most invigorating minds of the digital generation have declared that they need to focus on what is important, or focus on renewing what made them so driven to begin with.
Perhaps we should all step back and realize that running at the redline for as long as we have been (I have only been running this hard since 1999) is not for us, either personally or as a society.
Maybe it’s time to declare Break from Blogging day. I suggest June 4 3, 2005 (a Friday).
Walk away from your computer. Go outside. Go for a walk. Write a long journal entry, ON PAPER. Read a book.
Just don’t blog. Don’t read them. Don’t write them. Just be the person you are.
UPDATE: I am an idiot. Friday June 3, 2005
