Great. By being more popular online (and getting more people to your website), you destroy the world, in a small way. Instead of looking at this as a negative, I thought I would share some tips on how to reduce Internet time. It’s quite easy to cut an hour of surfing time each day by following a few simple steps:
1. Invest in a RSS Reader – it cuts load times, surf times and puts all the information from your favorite sites in 1 place. Google Reader is my choice.
2. Keep social networking to your mobile. Using Facebook/Twitter through your smart phone not only reduces the time you spend online, but means you are not browsing in a zen like state waiting for something to happen. I find I am far less inclined to zone out if I keep it to the mobile.
3. Schedule your day. Make time for the Internet and stick to that time. Senselessly browsing hour after hour wastes a lot of energy and kills your productivity.
If you can manage these 3 things, you will find there is more time to play, connect with real people and get out on the trails. Simple…
