This month's Big Question: Where is your time spent?


I found this month's Big Question quite thought-provoking. It was like jamming my brakes and pausing to gather my thoughts. With so many new tools and technologies, it is definitely easier to update myself and get better at it.

And now for the answers:
How much time do I spend and how did I find time for all the relatively newer things like reading blogs, twitter, social networks, etc.?
Unfortunately for me, my organization still has most of the sites blocked in office. Except for Google and a few other sites, am cut off from practically all sources of knowledge. So, the only way I can catch up with the world is when I get back home and connect to my computer. Thankfully some of the blogs are accesible and so I catch up on them when in office. Infact most of my knowledge is gathered through the blogs I read. However, when am back home, I catch up on all that I missed during the day.

What am I doing less of today than I was 3-5 years ago?
I just remembered I have a television at home!

Am glad am not stuck to it any more. But books are something I cannot give up on for anything else. There's nothing like settling in with a steaming cup of coffee and a great book :-) I do find time for that.

Do you have less of a life with all of these new things?

Life has certainly changed.

Now, I know that there are so many ways in which I can be on par with others in my field. So in that way, life is certainly better - to know that you are connected all the time. I also believe in giving optimum attention to everything in life. If I spend most of my time blogging or tweeting with no time for anything else, I know life is getting lopsided. I like a fair share of everything. So life is certainly richer - never lesser.
