If I only had one hour left to access the internet I would definitely want to do something meaningful with that hour. When I say meaningful I don’t mean spending it on Netflix watching the office although that would be pretty entertaining. I would want to download, screenshot, save as many videos, books, pictures as I could. So, that in the future when there will be no more internet I could save myself from dying of boredom.
Since, that is now established the next question is what meaningful books, videos, and pictures do I want to save for the future? That is a very easy question for me because I know exactly where my interests lie. From a young age, I have been interested in learning more about my roots and ancestors. I have always heard amazing stories about my people, my homeland, and my cultural heritage but I have hardly ever taken time out to further increase my knowledge about my history. I know you might be thinking if I am interested in learning more about my history why wouldn’t I just go ahead and do it. However, when you are constantly surrounded by distractions such as social media, Netflix, tik tok, etc., it can be quite hard to get started. Brian Tracy explains this better than I ever could “The hardest part of any important task is getting started on it in the first place. Once you actually begin work on a valuable task, you seem to be naturally motivated to continue.” So, maybe an internet shutdown is exactly what I need to do what I want to do.
