Spelling Tuesday

“He respects Owl, because you can’t help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn’t spell it right.” A.A. Milne

I am reading the book I recommended last week on procrastination. Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time I stopped when I got to the suggestion, “resolve to take one full day off each week during which you do not touch your computer, check your BlackBerry (or in my case my Ipod touch,) or make any attempt to keep in touch with the world of technology.”  I do remember a time before email and computers…did we get more done? were we more relaxed? did I procrastinate less? 
Could you do this? I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t want to do it every week, I do most of my writing on my computer, or even for an entire day but I do think I could modify this and cut down my computer time/web browsing and email checks. Generally I stop checking email after 7:00 p.m. but now with my Ipod touch I can lie in bed and check my email until I go to sleep. This is a bad habit I  need to break. Tomorrow, monitor how much time you spend with the world of technology? Could you cut your technology time and get more work done? Will this help you find time for creative writing? Now get back to work!

  1. I am not sure that I could do this. I have thought about going offline for an entire day (gasp), which would help me get things done. I do miss the days of reading an actual newspaper, etc., which you would think would be easy to go back to (just get off the computer) but . . .
