I really enjoyed watching this documentary on my lazy Sunday today. It’s only 13 minutes, but as we’re living in a time period currently where so many people have hard time disconnecting, it’s something I can relate to. All of my work is online. I spend 80% of my day doing emails at work and when I get home, I run this blog and I definitely can’t post from paper and pen. I think the most I’ve ever gone without the internet was a day or two at the most. Even when I was traveling in Japan, I had access to internet through my hotel. It’s pretty amazing to see these 5 individuals give it up especially since their professions are all about it and I realized that the struggles they face are ones that I would face if put in the same situation. The fear of missing out on something is HUGE. Yes, it’s embarrassing, but I blame it on feeds. I am glued to the feeds on my social network and even if the blogs I read don’t have one, I will rewind all the way back to the last post I read for fear of missing out on content that I could use as inspiration to write a blog post here.
It’s a hard cycle, man. It was an informative doc though so if you have some time to spare, I recommend watching it.
