As a result, what was once a strategic and creative outlet and a way to increase my knowledge base by following and listening to really smart people, has recently become an unwanted distraction. Heck, I just turned on TweetDeck 10 minutes ago!
In addition to the information overload, there is a bit of a 'crise de coeur' thing going on. When I read and try to digest what 'Social Business experts' such as Dachis and Altimeter are saying and doing, I suffer from both envy and performance anxiety - not a good combination.
As we approach Canadian Thanksgiving, I resolve to:
- Delegate and concentrate on the strategic aspects of my work
- Re-evaluate and pare down on the list of people I follow based on the quality, creativity and depth of the content they deliver.
- Write down good ideas when they come to me and then commit to publishing them.
