- The miracle of scheduling
- The miracle of integrated calendars
- The miracle of “Setting App” on your phone, to actually choose to put it on silent, DND, turning off all notifications, as well as down-time.
People who do not understand these miracles, call themselves addicted to the internet.
Everyone on the internet is doing fine.
And looking wonderful in their stories.
Which, of course, is a great thing.
However, bring me a successful person and I will show you the number of times they failed. Success is a numbers game. Zero exceptions. You can, of course, inherit wealth however what you do after that – become Mukesh Ambani or Anil Ambani is up to you.
So when you think it is only you who is scared while everyone else is already writing their autobiographies, remember that scene from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. where Ross is broken and shattered seeing Rachel going, and he says in a hoarse queer voice, “I’m fine!” That’s exactly the voice of the internet is. Trust your process, look up to people for inspiration, however, never ever mistrust or doubt your hard work. Because, no one ever clicks a selfie while feeling sad sitting in their balcony. Everyone will put a happy selfie, that perhaps a fake one just to join the bandwagon of impressing the social media that they are also like them.
Yesterday was the first time in almost 3 years that I didn’t publish a blog.
Not because I got lazy, rather because Internet services were taken away in my hometown, where I was yesterday.
So what were the great things that came out of that massive Internet cut?
First and foremost, I didn’t have withdrawal symptoms on not being able to access the internet. That was something to be proud of.
Secondly, thinking about scheduling my blog posts one day in advance. It rules out the perils of anonymity.
What do you think?
