After I graduated from college I got rid of my television.  What is life without television like?

  • When I do watch television, I find it to be:

    • Frighteningly bad.  So many of the television shows never actually go anywhere or teach anything or even have very good production values.
  • I have lots of extra time each day.  Hours.  What do I do with this time?
    • Work on my business (takes up most of the time)
    • Workout – instead of vegging on the couch after work I walk to the gym
    • Read books. Currently reading “Autobiography of a Yogi”. Interesting.
    • Visit people. Jeremy and I have a weekly brainstorming meetup. I meet up with other friends for golf, chess, bbqs, etc.
