New Year’s Resolutions for Technology Junkies
1. I will try to figure out why I “really need” 12 e-mail addresses and 3 twitter accounts.
2. I will stop using facebook as my primary means of communication with my family…
3. I resolve to work with neglected children — my own.
4. I will answer my snail mail with the same enthusiasm with which I answer my e-mail and text messages.
5. I will stop sending e-mail to my spouse. A phone call every now and then would be appreciated.
6. I resolve to back up my hard drive daily…well, once a week…okay, monthly then…or maybe… at least once a year
7. I will spend less than one hour a day on the Internet. This, of course, will be hard to estimate since I’m not a clock watcher.
8. I will stop checking my e-mail or blogs at 3:00 in the morning… 4:30 is much more practical since my friends overseas already had time to answer me by then.
9. When I hear a funny joke, I will not reply: “LOL… LOL!”
10. I will think of a password other than “password.”
11. I resolve… I resolve to… I resolve to, uh… I resolve to, uh, get my, er… I resolve to, uh, get my, er, off-line work done, too!
As far as I’m concerned, treachery will sometimes bring loyalty into question
Thought for the day
“Many of the people scolded him and told him to be quiet. But he shouted even more loudly, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’ ” (Mark 10:48 GNT).
If you’re going to make a fresh start with faith in your life, you have to face your fears. Don’t let them control you! Fear has an incredible ability to paralyze our potential, to keep us from launching out, to keep us from having faith in our lives.
God is asking you to do something greater than you’ve ever done before: He’s asking you to depend on him completely!!
