Furious Activity

I realize my need to tame this data maelstrom. Newsletters, Facebook groups, Twitter feeds…I have volunteered myself for more information than can possibly be processed. This only serves as distraction. It’s so easy to lose focus, lose hours to chasing rabbits down those rabbit holes.

This robs my productivity, which is what I value most. So, I seek to calm this. Unsubscribing from newsletters, unlocking Facebook fan-pages, little things that actually feel very hard.

I want that connection; connection with the globe, with community. What I’ve done, though, is illusion. There’s no community gained by absorbing details of events beyond my influence.

Instead, focus upon my area of influence; on being effective. Have impact, make good things happen.
