Two thoughts colliding with my own thinking.
Firstly, Mark Sanborn's blog "What are we making space for?".
Followed by an article that I was reading "Meet the Life Hackers" by Clive Thompson, who quotes Merlin Mann
"We'd rather die than be bored for a few minutes, so we just surround ourselves with distractions."
Well, I've been thinking a lot about the importance of a proper Sabbath as the focal point of the week - creating space and balance and a time for no distractions. I need this space, and I need to establish it and protect it.
I've also just finished reading an intriguing wee book called "Do nothing to change your life" - actually I'm going to be a tease and keep that for tomorrow, or the next time that I get space to blog.
