I’m a newspaper reader. Everyday, I read pretty much the entire Knoxville News-Sentinel. I start with the Sports page mainly because my brain is not always active early in the morning. I then proceed to the comics page and whatever is around that. Then I look at the national news and end with local news and editorials.
But now, I’m trying to simplify. And it is hard. I put so much information into my little brain everyday, that I sometimes fail to focus on what is important. So I’m asking myself as I begin reading: Does it matter?
That doesn’t mean that I won’t look at the sports section, but I am sure to do more skimming. That doesn’t mean that there is not room for entertainment, but maybe not so much.
My time is limited, so I need to try to make the most of it. The best way to do this is to “simplify, simplify.”
