Get a Life! Part 3 - Mass Media Growth & Electronic Addiction

Dear Friends,

The 5 Mega-Realities:

1. Population growth
2. An expanding volume of knowledge

3. Mass media growth and electronic addiction
4. The paper trail culture
5. An overabundance of choices

This week's segment is about Mass Media Growth & Electronic Addiction and a few Life Saving tips that you can apply.

(Taken in part from "Get a Life! Living and Working at a Comfortable Pace in a High-Speed World".)

#3 - Mass Media Growth & Electronic Addiction

As we spend more and more hours tuned to the expanding array of electronic media, we are exposed to tens of thousands of messages and images. Like too much food at one sitting, too much data, in any form, isn't easily ingested.

Life Savers:

Refocus on your priorities. What issues are really worth of your time and attention?

What sources give you information that supports your priorities? What sources would you be better off without?
You don't have to keep it up!

Tomorrow morning, when you're getting ready for work, rather than switching on the radio or TV, what if you were to quietly envision how you would like your day to be? Include everything that's important to you - the commute, entering your office, sitting down at your desk,
easily handling tasks, communicating with co-workers and taking breaks to recharge your energy. Wouldn't your day go a little better?

If you want to get a life, it is pointless to sit in your arm chair with the channel changer, intellectually resonating with the world's problems. Action is invigorating. Go help
out in the soup kitchen, or volunteer to answer the phone during pledge week at your public broadcasting station.

You can't fix the whole world, but you can help a small part of it.

Your ability to make a real, if small, difference in an area that you identified as a priority immediately gives meaning and value to your life.

Next week we will discuss:
