Do you prioritize your day's experience?

Let's go back in time to the year 1970. The number of options for you to fill your day was very limited.

Look at the picture depicting the options you had in the 70s':
  • Movies

  • TV (depending on where you lived)

  • Radio

  • Theatre

  • Sports

  • Music

  • Hobbies

  • Work

  • Mail

  • Books

I have not listed all of them. I am sure there could be more to add.

Look at the picture depicting today:

  • TV

  • Internet

  • Blogs

  • Social networking

  • Wikis

  • Groups


  • email

  • Video games

  • Theatre

  • Cell phone

  • ipod

  • Movies

  • Movies at home through DVD/HD

  • Sports

  • Hobbies

  • Books

  • ebooks

The list can go on and on. The point I am making is that today we have much more options in front of us and that can be overwhelming. Moreover, unless we choose carefully, we may end up wasting time in activities that may not be yielding fully to our well being and happiness.

We need to take charge of the experiences we can have day to day by prioritizing and developing a hierarchy of fun and valuable things to do.

Think about it next time you reach for the remote to watch TV. Do you have better options? Are you stuck in one way of entertaining yourself? Are you stuck in one or few ways of networking? Are you stuck with one way of getting information or knowledge?

Think hard and act now! It will spell the difference between having a wholesome life in contrast with a boring, routine filled life?

What do you think?
