But I like being distracted by dings, rings, and chimes
You go right ahead and leave that leash behind
You can mute, disable, and ignore
While I jump up and run for more
Emails, calls, tweets, and texts
The simple relief from work I detest
Or the projects I promise to undertake
After a tinnnny little technology break
I know you need the quiet and the rest
To concentrate and reflect
I gotta have shiny, communication things
For my mind’s wildly flapping angel wings
This silly poem is my attempt to illustrate the classic clash of the spontaneous, people-focused vs. the scheduled, task-focused.
People-focused get their energy from socializing.
Task-focused get their energy from being alone.
So, can we stop judging each other now?
