On being selfish

In real life I’m selfish; I think mostly about myself in many of the things I do. On the contrary, on the internet I’m very selfless. I stop to answer a question on Stack Overflow, or post on a forum. When I figure out something complicated, I write a detailed post in my blog so that others can find my post via Google and not have to go through the trouble I went through.

I need to reverse these. In real life I want to strive to be selfless. When on the computer, I want to avoid wasting time on Stack Overflow and the like when I could be working on something more productive or otherwise bettering myself.

Time for a role reversal. Internet self, meet real life self.
