I woke up this morning with a powerful realization. I have felt for a few days now that I have been getting more and more frustrated with what I’m trying to do online. My realization is rather simple, but profound, at least for me. So here it is:
The more time I spend finding resources about doing things online, the less time I spend actually doing the things I want to do online and creating the things I want to create. There is an almost infinite amount of information available about virtually any topic on the web. Some of this information is terrific, some of it is worse than useless, but I just can’t look at all of it. There’s just too much of it, and if I try to look at all of it, or even everything that seems interesting, all I will ever do is read about blogging, or any other topic. I’ll never actually get to writing the post.
So at least for today, I am committing to myself to focus on doing, starting with this post. In the long run, I don’t know how ongoing to find the balance, there is very interesting and very useful data out there. For now though I’m just going to focus on doing.
How do you balance what you do online? Please comment, I’d love to hear your methods.
