Okay, this is a major departure from the high tech world, but I’m gonna do it anyway. I have been so busy these last two weeks I have not been following my feeds and news and posting as I should (and leaving the burden to Rob – who is awesome btw!), so this morning I was determined to get caught up. Instead, I got “caught” in a different way.
I follow Robert Scobles blog, just because I like his style, and he occasionally says something I agree with! I got a whole different picture of the man today, and know that his whole “Naked Conversations” theme took on a whole new meaning for him. He is having a very naked conversation with his readers.
Robert’s mom is dying, and he is blogging it. Here is a link to just one post that touched me personally. I was captivated by the simple reminder that things like family and friends are SO much more important than all the activities we tech geeks can let grab us. Read through his blog, and see if you get it. Then shut your computer off for a while and do as Robert asks. Hug a famly member and get your priorities right. I love my tech tools, but I love my family and friends more.
Thanks Robert, for the reminder. My prayer is that as you go through this difficult time, it will cement in you a permanent adjustment in priorities. I hope I can do the same.
Go ahead, quit reading now. You know what to do.
