Whatever you do today, please read Om’s current post, Relax, Chill and maybe Blog, responding to the New York Times on the Web’s 24/7 culture. Om addresses the detriments of drinking too much coffee, spending too much time in front of your computer screen, or on an airplane, and generally — never “hitting the beach.” Did you know: “if you don’t sleep your heart works longer hours and has to pump more blood and is under stress.” Om knows this now.
Those were my issues, and I think those are some of the issues of folks who are bloggers, start-up founders, journalists, corporate lawyers, cab drivers, Wall Street analysts, and presidential candidates. Now those are issues many people in Silicon Valley deal with on a day-in-day-out basis but refuse to acknowledge. Do yourself a favor: get yourself checked out by a doctor.
And take time to hit the beach. I just bought two cups of coffee — both for me, because I’m writing today. Now I’m going to pour one of them out, and go for a walk.
