Reduce

Written on January 6, 2020

Tonight I deactivated my Meetup account. I wasn’t the most active Meetup user. I did use it a few times to meet up with developers in Germany which was pleasant. But overall it wasn’t something I actively used and all it was doing was filling up my inbox.

So tonight, I deactivated my account. It isn’t the first time I’ve deactivated my account on some platform and I don’t think it’ll be the last. It’s funny how in the past decade it was about freely giving out emails to try or gain access to things. But now, I feel the need to reduce and be selective of where I give my attention.
