Yesterday a rare thing happened. I had a little time to kill. I had my 13 year old daughter with me, and I decided it would be nice to chat over coffee at Starbucks (hot chocolate in her case). I enjoy sitting with my daughter in such a relaxed atmosphere. It gives us a chance to connect – something many parents find difficult to do with their teenage children.
As I sat at the little round table listening to my daughter chat away, I noticed something was written on the back side of my coffee cup. Upon reading these wise and revealing words, I decided to post them here for you because they tie in perfectly with a point I often try to make – that we have more time than we think we do. Here, then, for your consideration, is what I read:
Americans spend an average of 29 hours a week watching television – which means in a typical life span we devote 13 uninterrupted years to our TV sets! The biggest problem with mass media isn’t low quality – it’s high quality. Cutting down just an hour a day would provide extra years of life – for music and family, exercise and reading, conversation and coffee (and writing! -me).
