My only experience in social media is this blog and e-mails. I don't have a cell phone, even though it would be very convenient at times. But, I am not willing to give up my personal space. I do not want to be available every minute of the day. I need time to think my own thoughts and, to be honest, I don't want to hear every detail of anyone's life. People can find me if they need me. I still find the house telephone a disruption- especially when many calls are advertizing. I need to find a way to turn off the ring. It disrupts my plan of the moment. That's why I love e-mail, where you can answer when you wish- or not!
A 2016 Neilsen report discovered that the average person spends more than 10 hours a day with media- radio, TV, and all electronic devices. Not much time left for reading!
It appears that discipline is more important than ever.
Bill Gates reads 50 books a year
Mark Zuckerberg reads at least one book every two weeks.
Elon Musk grew up reading two books a day.
Mark Cuban reads for more than three hours every day.
Arthur Blank, co-founder of Home Depot, reads two hours a day.
These busy people make time to read and so can we. It's important!
