But it’s better than TV

At the local health food store lunch buffet, they offer stir fried tempeh (a traditional soy product originally from Indonesia).
I never get it. Not because I don’t like it (Okay I’m not a fan), but because there are always so many other things on the buffet that I prefer.

That’s why I don’t watch TV. At all. When I am on holiday, I hardly switch on the TV. I hardly watch TV at home. There are so many other things I would rather do in that moment.

Broadcast TV was a great choice when:

a> there weren’t a lot of other options; and

b> when everyone else was watching the same thing, so you needed to see it to be educated.

Now, though, you could:

  • Run a little store on eBay or an online catalog
  • Write a daily blog
  • Write a novel
  • Start an online community about your favorite passion
  • Go to meetups in your town
  • Volunteer to tutor a kid, in person or online
  • Learn a new language, verbal or programming
  • Write hand written thank you notes each evening to people who helped you out or did a good job
  • Produce small films and publish them online
  • Listen to the one thousand most important operas
  • Read a book or two every evening
  • Play a game of Scrabble with your family

None of them are perfect. Each of them are better than TV.
