I’ve found as I get busier in life I’ve become more insulated from the outside world. I find I just don’t care as much about things I used to. Take two of my previous favorites. The Superbowl and politics.
I literally didn’t care about last night’s game. Heck, I’m in advertising and I couldn’t even muster the interest to watch the commercials. Instead I spent about 20 minutes watching them online this morning.
I’ve found politics to be the same way this year. Last election cycle, I had an i.v. drip feeding political talk shows and news directly into my body. This year, I just don’t seem to care. I’ll still vote, don’t get me wrong, but I just can’t dedicate the time or energy to it.
I find the only things I’m interested in these days are things that challenge and inspire me creatively. With so little time, my focus is on three things these days; my family, my business and the church.
