Does this apply to you at all?
The New Yorker articles say that everytime we make a choice it uses up some of our limited willpower. This is especially important to those of us who have ADD or ADHD; we need willpower! There are so many choices. I have a new I Phone. There are hundreds (thousands?) of apps i could get. There is a steep learning curve for using the I Phone, the camera, the phone – i havent been able to get my numbers transferred to it yet- and each of the new apps. We have TV with Downton Abby and PBS and Nova and if i can figure out how to hook up the set we can stream netflix and get any movie we want any time we want. We have the computers with all kinds of programs, including games, facebook, linked in, my blog and others people’s blogs. We have e mail and texting.
How do we find time to eat or sleep and how many choices an hour are we making and how much are they depleting our will power?
So the tip is to simplify your life. For the moment, I am trying to limit checking e mail and the blog and book sale stats to twice a day. but it will take more than that. and of course, it takes will power.
