Time Poor Isn’t Poverty
So many of us in this social media world have been feeling “time poor.” As we see what’s happening with the economy, we’re starting to realize that there are far worse things than being “time poor,” that “time poor” isn’t the kind of poverty that means we don’t get to eat.
As we take a day to do something to shed a light on real poverty, let’s do it with gusto and generosity by thinking and acting “time rich.”
When someone needs our attention — online or off — we can take time to find out why. We move use social media move the Blog Action Day conversation forward. We can look away from our screens to talk to our families, hoping that our online friends are doing the same thing, knowing they’ll be there when we get back. What a blog action day it will be if we actually think and act “time rich.”
It doesn’t take but a second to listen, to open our minds and our time, to add rich value to every connection in our lives.
“Time rich” is being generous with the time we have and realizing that we have all of the time we need for important things. We’re more aware of what it means to connect for others who need help.
This year, we give up our “time poor” thinking to get the world to see and respond to people who are poor in devastating ways.
Have you got some “time rich” thinking to shed a light on the kind of poverty that means folks don’t get to eat?
