IN YOUR DIGITAL LIFE?
Me. Well, I recently moved and do
not have an extra outlet at my bedside so I've been recharging my iPhone at
night beside my desk-in another room. The difference is noticeable. Before I
used to wake up in the middle of the night and look at the email. Then
before I got out of bed in the morning I'd check my email and chat. Now, I open
my eyes, step out of bed, open my curtains and greet the morning sky (and
usually sun) with a big stretch and thanks to the heavens for giving me another
day. I put on the coffee and then....I go to the door to pick up the morning
paper from the stoop. I breath the fresh air deeply. With my cafe con leche in
hand, I move slowly to the desk, unplug the phone and check the email, but
rarely respond unless there is an emergency. (Is there ever really a marketing
emergency that can't wait till I get to the office at 8AM?) Then I move
outdoors to read the paper and laugh at page 2 of The Key
West Citizen. The Citizen's Voice is a barometer of the tribe-these days it
consists of those of us strong enough to weather the summer in Key West. Late
this winter it'll document the 2 cents of the snow birds (as if we really care,
right?). But besides being informative it can be amusing! You probably aren't
up to speed on the impact that cruise ships, ghost tours, street musicians, and
the chronically homeless have on a small island community such as ours-it's
just outrageous! (tongue- in-cheek). If only the world had such troubles. And,
I often LOL at the ever humorous page 2 Crime Report-stupid is as stupid does.
After indulging in this "real time"
experience, I awaken and go to my office refreshed and connected for another
day! Then I fire up the Mac, the apps and the mail and wonder....what did I ever
do without technology?
How does your day
begin? With a smart phone or a sun
rise? With a café con leche and a laugh? I hope so!
