In this day and age, in this world of hyper-connectedness, in this moment where it feels like the communications industry is overwhelming us daily with gadgets and apps and new, shiny objects we must post and tweet and talk about, what inspires me most is…
It inspires me that offline will always win. Online can never replace sitting on a deck overlooking the lake, hand-in-hand with my wife. It can’t replace shaking someone’s hand and looking them in the eye. And it will never replace being there. Being present. I mean REALLY present. I’m both comforted and inspired by the fact that offline relationships run deep.
There is nothing like logging out of email, Twitter, Facebook and all the others, shutting the laptop, leaving the smartphone at home and engaging in real life. Real. Life. It is far more inspiring than anything online life can provide.
