Keeping informed, and staying in-touch with issues quickly each morning and afternoon via news aggregates, links below. Of course I’ll still be on social media, but not letting it suck me down into hours of lost-time anymore:

Weekday News:

  • Mornings: The Skimm “Making it easier for you to be smarter. … giving you all the news and info you need to start your day.” See the latest issue & sign up here – http://www.theskimm.com/
  • Afternoons: The Next Draft “The Day’s Most Fascinating News From Dave Pell”  http://nextdraft.com/.

Taking control of what I consume, and what I produce. Not ignoring the world, but making time to play and create. Creativity is going on my calendar as a to-do now, making time for what’s important.
