This past weekend I found a new podcast to listen to it is called the Mason World Late Night Internet Podcast. This guy is truly entertaining and informative. I have been looking for new information and inspiration relating to internet marketing. I think I have found it, in fact I found a little too much of it.
After I had listened to several of the podcast, his tip on how to stay motivated was to go on an information diet. It was at that moment that I realized I was suffering from information overload. This overload was causing me to do nothing instead of making progress.
The second hint came while I was at lunch with a friend the other day, we were discussing what I had been up to. They were familiar with my energy monitor site. This friend asked me why I quit maintaining it and then started outlaying numerous good ideas on how to improve the site. I was shocked! It had been some time since I discussed the site as well as brainstormed how to improve it.
It is amazing sometimes you just need a couple suttle hints to give you that swift kick needed and get you back on track. Due to this new found motivation, I have slowed down posting over the last week on all of my sites. I plan on coming back with a firm plan and then I will proceed again. One part of my plan is completion of the book I have been reading by Yanik Silver titled, Moonlighting on the Internet: 5 World-Class Experts Reveal Proven Ways to Make Extra Cash
Leave a comment and let me know about a time when you had to step back and take a deep breath before moving on.
