It’s Sunday afternoon. I should be taking a nap, I suppose, but I’m not. I’m sitting here.
I realized that I have writing that I could be doing for four blogs (two of my own and two where I guest). I have an ebook that I’ve started which talks about 10 principles of developing followers. I have a pile of reading to do. And I have 45 minutes (or did).
As I looked at all the possibilities and the constrains, I did what any normal person would do. I asked my twitter friends.
They were very helpful.
Of course I took their advice, but as I was eating my snickerdoodle, I realized that I was giving them too much responsibility, responsibility that belonged to me.
I need to decide which project. I need to sort through the options. I can ask for counsel (and probably should), but I’m the one that has to turn away from twitter and pick one project and work on it.
Too often I spend time sorting through the list, trying to decide which project. And getting none of them done. And then blaming (implicitly) other people for being so interesting or so demanding or so inviting or so something.
Instead, I could take some time and pick one and get it done.
Kind of like this.
Got to go. Thanks for helping me think. Enjoy your coffee (or tea) and cookies (or biscuits).
