With the amount of time that I've been spending surfing around the Internet nowadays, especially since I began this blog, I was starting to wonder how I ever manage to get any of my work done either at the office, or at home. I was scared for a little while this morning as I sat at my desk in the office, that there was a matter or two that needed to be attended to, which I had either forgotten to deal with, or which I had not been able to complete because just when I had started to do it, some idea suddenly popped up in my head and I had dropped everything and rushed off into cyberworld, looking for material to build up on the idea that entered my head.
I looked into my desktop diary with that lingering ominous feeling. Surely that task that I was supposed to have completed last Friday... But to my utter surprise and delight, I found that there was in fact nothing which I had not completed well in advance of its due completion time. What I then realised was that I was dealing with stuff at work briskly and getting them out of the way, in order to allow me even more time to browse the Internet, read the blogs of others, write my own blog and just generally revel in the wealth of information that is out there. Blogging has actually had a positive effect then, because not only is my work getting done more swiftly than it was before, but also, all that time that would have been spent unproductively worrying about my non-existent love life is put to good use. And I am a much happier person for it.
