Media Diet

This is an ever-growing list of media that I consume.

Why make this list?

I don't remember when it was that I realized I was spending too much time-consuming media (and information) that did little to nothing to enrich my life. I decided to be more purposeful and selective in how I invest my time and attention.

Keeping a list of the different media and information I've consumed helps me keep an eye on how I've chosen to use my (not unlimited) time and attention.

Here is how it works:

  1. The list is divided up by calendar year.
  2. Something gets added to the list When I finish a book, long-form article, audiobook, graphic novel, film/movie, season of a TV show or podcast, etc.
  3. Things only get added if /when I finish them. (i.e., If I start them but don't finish them, they don't get added to the list.)
  4. When it comes to music, I only add albums that I've listened to from start to finish. These are albums I sit down and listen to without doing other stuff or things that I listen to lots and lots (i.e., I listen to it repeatedly for a long time) while doing other stuff.
  5. Podcasts are included when I finish a season of the podcast, or if the podcast is an ongoing thing (i.e., no seasons), I'll add it if I listen to it consistently throughout the calendar year.
