Downtime


Sitting by the pool, listening to the children play and the planes take off overhead. The sun is shining, it’s 27 degrees with moderate humidity and lovely north easterly breeze. In other words, perfect Sydney summer day.

And yet here I am on my iPhone, writing a blogpost, reading in Smartr the awesome articles being shared by the people I follow on Twitter.

It’s the last day of 2010, and even while on “leave”, my brain still gets no downtime.

It’s at this point you expect me to make a resolution to put the technology away in 2011. But I won’t. I don’t do resolutions.

As with all we do, I just need to find some balance.

As I strive for that in 2011, I wish you all the same.

Happy new Year.

  1. Short, sweet & well-put, Gavin! I am also striving for more balance – not just for the new year, but for life. Now officially in my 40’s, if I don’t do it now, I will miss all the fun life has offered me while I’ve chosen work.

    I hope that means I’ll see more of you.

    Cheers & happy 2011,
