Last week I was on holiday. For the first time I decided that I’d take the laptop the ground-rule being that I would avoid email and IM – thus focusing on reading the flow from feeds and twitter. In the week prior I had subscribed to absolutely every feed where I had been linked to from other articles. Well it was great and I learned so much:
How to make your own magnetic whiteboard with paint alone … oh and then you can make it interactive if you wish with one of these
That I must actively use Skype V4 – on my home PC due to corporate policies.
That maybe I should try these productivity tools – I need a change I’m not 100% with the way I work today.
But most of all that I need to keep reading. I need to read more off topic (i.e. away from collaboration). Now these are things that I have long known I needed to do. I’m also having had time to reflect wanting to use my time better, working from home more rather than the office to allow more time for exercise in order to increase brain function.
