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…..
