How Much “Stuff” Can My Head Hold?

I think the subject line sums up where I am today.  Although I certainly classify myself as a “technologically disadvantaged” (don’t you just love labels?  I made this up for me – as much as an excuse as anything else – but pretty darned descriptive nonetheless) learner, I am making progress.  Today’s journey is focusing on learning how to market a different way – an area giving me all sorts of problems – – –

What I have to do, though, is to take it easy and not try to cram so much information and “to dos” in all at once.  Everytime I do, I get overwhelmed and then start beating myself up.  I am writing this today not only to remind myself but also you  – that baby steps in any learning process are ok.

I was reminded as I wrote that above paragraph about the movie, “What About Bob?” staring Bill Murray.  It is still one of the funniest, most enjoyable movies I have ever seen…but also, it remains one of the best “learning lessons” I have ever encountered. If you haven’t seen it, look it up and view it.  It is all about a man learning a new way of “being” by taking baby steps.

As we are all creating our new realities, are we all remembering to take baby steps?  One step at a time, one foot in front of the other, remembering to get our balance and then take the next step?

I tend to get overwhelmed when I think too “globally”… meaning all the things I am trying to create.  Sometimes I need to just peak at what lies ahead of me in my journey, then – take a breath and concentrate on JUST the next step.  So far so good… a few slips… but overall I am doing it.

My next stop is into the kitchen to find a clean cup, then find the coffee pot, then…..

  1. There are so many aspects of everything now that it is hard to stay on top of anything. I find it very hard to stay a generalist and have a good understanding how things work. Sometimes I think it is amazing we understand as much as we do.
    I keep telling myself that I have access to all information, and if I just “check it out of the library”, I can get what I need when I need it. However that is not something I have mastered.
    The new marketing is all about community. I am learning about that myself. It feels much more organic than previous marketing. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds.

  2. Everything seems to be coming at us/me from every angle and with exponentially more speed.
    I can certainly relate to the need to establish a new way of being because the capability to adapt and integrate have become survival skills !
    I find myself wanting and needing to unlearn( what is no longer relevant) as much if not more so than learn(what may prove to be relevant)!
