In the early days of social media I was very anxious. I thought that if we didn’t move quickly, we’d get left behind. Things were changing and they were changing fast and we couldn’t miss our chance. I’ve learned that you rarely get one chance at something and that it’s better to wait for moment you’re prepared than to jump at an opportunity too early and show up to the party early.
When you’re anxious you make other people around you anxious and then you start getting sub-par work. There are absolutely times you need to raise the warning flag and rally the troops for immediate action but those times are the exception not the rule and I think many of us are getting used to always being in crisis mode.
So as is becoming my habit from the road, here’s another video. I’m pretty sleep deprived this week, but I think I’m still pretty coherent.
