A couple of days ago I had to go to a hotel because the water was turned off in my building. I grudgingly left behind my beloved desktop Mac and packed my laptop. I grumbled that I wasn’t going to get any work done.
Surprisingly, I got a ton of work done with time to spare for exploring the resort and going out to a nice dinner. My computer was such a pain to use that all I did was my most necessary work. The stuff for which I have deadlines. I spent very little time on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. I didn’t write any blog posts. It was just too darn hard to type and switch between applications. I did my work and was finished.
I started to wonder whether I should use my clunky laptop all the time, but my wrists objected. No, I’ll still sit in front of my Mac and tweet and blog and so on, but it was certainly an interesting lesson.
