This weekend I am traveling to a conference. The trip involves about 24 hours of which 18 is in the air.
Granted I will probably spend part of that time watching some movies–I looked up Uniteds inflight movies and am eager to see the Peanuts film again.
Still it’s a unique time. There’s no phones and no internet access (not in economy anyway). It’s a time I cannot be contacted nor tempted into the distraction of the Internet. So I’m bringing some books and my notebooks for recording notes and hoping to use it profitably.
Maybe we all need from time to time to put ourselves in airplane mode and do a deep dive into an important subject rather than the shallow 30 second skim we usually get in a given day.
