2012 will be about simplifying.

Less of…

  • Hacker News. Only consume digest and links recommended. 
  • Twitter. Only consume via mobile. It is distracting otherwise. 
  • Pinterest(?). Pin, do not visit site unless looking at a board for a specific task. 
  • Reddit. 
  • Facebook.

Use that time instead to…

  1. Read books, actual books. 
  2. Make things.

More concretely…

  • Mobile sites, games, apps, sandboxes.
  • Paintings.

Make a point to unplug for 7 days / every season. Refresh the fact that the world goes on without you.
