Who Can It Be Now?

Visitor or resident? As the French say, ça dépend…

Depends on the time of day, the day of the week, and the hat I’m wearing. If it’s a weekday morning, I’m at work, and I have enough coffee in me, I’m on that blue/pink Resident/Institutional side where I’m creating using those Microsoft tools we’re tied to at work. If it’s the evening, it’s the other diagonal at Personal/Visitor in green and purple where I’m using more Apple product and connecting with friends and family, consuming news, books, school updates, and language learning resources, rather than producing.

At least that’s how the past couple of years have gone. If I go further back, my workday is producing. My evenings are producing AND consuming. Looking at this graphic, I realize how much I’ve been on autopilot and consuming, rather than consuming, THEN PRODUCING. I’m looking forward to shifting this and expect to redo this in a year or so and see what’s changed. For me, this was a good exercise to more consciously do something with what I’m consuming, rather than just let it marinate in my brain. I was also surprised to see that my Personal-Institutional divide was so starkly divided by technology hardware brand. I’d like to look into that more.
