Ladies and gents, the times they are a changing. Time freedom is the new money. I am excited about all the alternative ways to earn a decent income while not trading your time freedom for money. I’m not saying that you don’t have to work- you do, I’m talking about the WAY we work. How we spend our time and what we contribute to the world. I have tried lots of different endeavors since I quit working full time at a traditional office-type job. We made sacrifices to keep one of us around to raise our kiddos.
Do you need a Digital Detox?
I recently had to replace the screen on my cell phone which required me to leave it at the Apple store for a whole hour. They told me to come back at 5:15pm. No problem I thought- I would just wander round the mall. Holy cow was that hard! First of all, I had no idea what time it was because I use my phone as a watch, second I probably reached for that thing like 20 times out of sheer habit knowing full well that it was not with me and third I had this odd feeling of being cut off. Cut off from what? I decided it was time to seriously take inventory of how I am using technology in my life.
