I'm writing on my laptop with five different tabs open including Facebook, the Huffington Post, Twitter, Instagram, and ABC News. Listening to music, I see my Facebook wall streaming with new posts including a live video called "Why You Should Try Intermittent Fasting," followed by an article about why women are needed in political positions now more than ever, followed by a statement on how possible it is to manifest your deepest desires, and toward the bottom, an article on the importance of avocados.
All of this is well and good. I cannot deny that every so often I find myself pondering the potent power of a good avocado. I also find myself admiring women in politics. And who of you will say that you've never made a good, old-fashioned vision board?
With that said, I'm eager to slow down in the midst of all of this knowledge available to me at all times. There is a difference between gaining knowledge and merely feeding my need for speed. Sometimes I have five to ten tabs open on my computer just so that I can finally check off some things on my to-do list. Watch this webinar, try this recipe, read this post, become this person. It can be overwhelming.
