Tunnel Vision

Losing cell reception in the Grand Central tunnel is liberating. One can dive into their own thoughts for about seven minutes without being interrupted by a push messages, SMS, or calls.

Yet there’s always a few passengers though poking their browser’s refresh button trying to force a single bar of reception.

Internet connectivity is like water, free and accessible everywhere. We can drink a lot of it, all day, but only so much as our body permits. Remove it completely and we die.

The Internet works the same way. Turning off the Internet makes you appreciate it more. We should be thankful when we’re forced to disconnect.

The Internet is the modern day railroad, a massive transformation in the way we communicate and get stuff done. Creation, distribution, marketing, and disruption literally sit in the palm of your hand.

But we still need more tunnels, more opportunities to unmoor from the anchors of technology so we can recharge and appreciate its power. We need to use the Internet judiciously.

Technology is always on. Our brains require sleep to rewire. Take a break every once in a while. It’s ok to be thirsty.
