Whats Real

doors and windows and what’s real from Derek Sivers yesterday. He doesn’t post much at the moment, but if he does, I read.

It’s a nice piece about the difference between the real world (or at least what the “real world” wants it to be for you) and the world your can create for yourself just by being mindful, creative and cogniscent of what’s important.

I find Derek’s description of that world pertintent as I am transitioning away from social media. Social media isn’t all of what he’s describing, but I’m sure it’s most of what he describes. Derek describes this world:

…an infinite dark room filled with psychologically tortured people, trying to get attention. Strangers screaming at strangers, starting fights.
