We're all busy, and there's all sorts of things to keep us even busier, so when I find any tips on saving time, using time, and enjoying time (vs. being overwhelmed by lack of time), I take note. Bobbi Newman, the Digital Services Librarian at the Missouri River Regional Library, keeps a blog worth watching, and recently she posted about how she finds the time to keep up with web 2.0 technology. I particularly liked her first tip...
"I don't try to keep up with everything. There is so much going on, I think it would be impossible to try to do it all and have a balanced life, so I accept that there will always be something I don’t know about."
It's reasurring to know that someone who presents on the topic of web 2.0 also feels the pinch, the need to step back before getting overwhelmed by the rapid-fire innovations surrounding us. Check out her entire post, here: http://librarianbyday.wordpress.com/2008/06/09/how-do-you-find-the-time/
And also be sure to read her colleague's blog: Passion for 'Puters. We've posted about Robin Hastings in the past, and she's a MaintainIT Project contributor, too. Expect to learn more from Robin and others in the next Cookbook, due out later this summer.
