A Reminder

A brief note, to myself as much as anyone, to say that increasingly my Let’s Absorb This mind is being met far too early by my How Could I Share This mind. So that, for instance, three sentences into reading an article or essay, a shift takes place and my mind’s job is now to decide how this interesting, attention-worthy material just might be shared — here on this or another blog, or on Twitter or Facebook, or to co-workers. All before I have fully absorbed the piece in front of me. So I am reminding myself: Do your best to focus on absorbing — just you and the material, just like the old days — and later, when you’ve finished, when appropriate, share, share away.
