There’s a new Twitter in town. With new functionality, a new look and feel and lots of new chatter about the future of Twitter and online communications. Maybe you were a part of the live press conference? Or maybe you stopped everything you were doing to follow along?
This is fine. But I can’t help but offer up a thought… What if we paid as much attention to:
- Tuning into the United Nation’s Development Group’s Webcast
- Following the National Conference on Citizenship online
- Hearing about our kid’s day at school
- Listening in to the TEDxChange Event led by Melinda Gates
- Read the newspaper
- Go vote for the 2010 Elections
Following Twitter’s news has a place in our life–but there are so many different aspects to life outside of the Internet and technology. I feel it’s okay to follow the hype–but let’s not get caught up in it. I say this as much as a reminder to myself, as I do to my fellow bloggers and readers. Where we place our time and attention, influences our thoughts. And our thoughts can become our actions.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
So I ask you: What are your thoughts?
