Participation means giving someone a part-to-play-in
One person’s inspiration is another person’s distraction
Some say that you should make your goals public, others say you shouldn’t. I probably sit on the keep-it-to-yourself end of the spectrum.
But one goal that I will make public is my desire to focus.
I was thinking today how what is one person’s inspiring is another’s distracting. I have to be careful about how much inspiration I let in: TED Talks, upbeat ‘you can do it’ LinkedIn posts, people going crazy over Gary Vaynerchuk or Michael Hyatt, or talking about personal branding.
Hey, I love that stuff. But for me, what is another’s inspiring, is my distracting. If I’m not careful, one little bit of content, and I’m off tangent and off focus.
Thus, this year’s goal is to add nothing more to my three goals (one for each of my three current projects). My goal is to focus.
Wish me luck!
No, this isn’t like 28 Weeks Later.
It’s been 5 years since April 2011, the month that I stopped blogging after doing it for 2 years, and also the same time that I was already drifting away from social media, and from the wonderful relationships that I had built with about 50 people through this blog.
What has happened in the last 5 years? In chronological order: Continue reading “5 Years Later”
So, after pretty much 5 years of not writing on this blog (actually, I deleted it), I have painstakingly resurrected it and am now ready to begin, again.
But where to begin?
Here. This moment. My fingers on the keyboard, putting something out there.
It’s good to be back (again).
Just get to the next
An ounce of action is worth a pound of pondering
