This week I restrain myself to spend too much time on Internet. There have been a lot of tasks I’d been postponing because of the time I spend online.
I would like to say that this was challenging for me since I’m used to check my Gmail and my Facebook every hour… I must admit that by 3 times I went online during the evening (I kinda had to)
Now the thing is that I’m working to be a professional blogger (mainly through this blog: www.hsia.fr) and since I’m a self-employed web marketer, it is obvious that I need to spend time online right?! However, I also need to take care of my father, solve some administrative issues, spend some time playing with my nephew, serving God etc.
What I’ve realized after a week using internet « only » 7 hours a day, is that I was much more productive in my job with a limitation to the time I spent on the computer. That was a good thing.
However, what didn’t change is that I’m still so lazy that I haven’t done much of the tasks I needed to do. I did spend more quality times with my family but I could have done so much better.
This challenge was also a chance for me to get used to not having an internet connection all the time. Where God is going to call me might be a place with almost no internet connection. I then need to change my habits even though surfing on the web is one of my passion.
I’ve also been discouraged in something else: I’m soooo not ready to have a family. I feel like I don’t even have time to take care of me: (cooking, laundry, to shop…) How would I be able to have a wife and a child and take care of them 24/7.
Fortunately, God has worked within me lately and convinced me that now it wasn’t time for me to focus on that. He gave me peace and had made me patient in this area. That should help me focus more on my main purpose: serving God.
Anyway, I have good stuff for this week. A REAL challenge… Pray for me and stay tuned on my Facebook page.
