Super Bowl and Time Management

Yes, I have been ignoring the blogosphere the last few days.  If you somehow haven't heard, the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl Sunday night.  Since then, most of my computer time has been for soaking up anything and everything Packers with a little trying to keep up with my podcasts.  Anyway,  I'm back... And the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl Champions!  Woohoo!!

I have noticed these past few days how I've been too busy.  Too much of my time is taken up reading the paper and scouring the web.  Enough so that I'm actually considering discontinuing the daily paper and just getting the Sunday edition (or I think they make you get Sunday and Wednesday minimum - because of the ads, of course).   I have read the daily newspaper since I was a kid almost continuously so that would be a much bigger change in my lifestyle than it sounds.

I need to scale back on my computer time as well.  I don't follow nearly as many blogs as I used to, but some of the inane timewaster sites can go.  Yet I browse those while listening to podcasts.  Hmmm, I'm going to have to give up something I enjoy, most likely.  I have an addictive personality with big OCD tendencies, which is probably how I got into all these things.  Giving something up shouldn't be too hard for me once I put my mind to it.  But deciding what goes is gonna be a killer.

It is difficult making choices although I now read newspapers on line, picking and choosing stories to read. I also have a cull of blogs every few months.
One thing I cut back on was facebook. I came to realise that fb contained a lot of rubbish and wasted too much of my time.

Unfortunately, I can't blame Facebook. I've treated that like poison since it came out. With no morning paper I could sleep in later. I read it mostly on breaks at work. I could pick and choose articles online later, but I'm trying to trim that list as well!
