This has happened to everyone.
Meltdown, overload, too much information, brain malfunction. All sound familiar?
I mean, they donít call it information superhighway for nothing. This millionaire is an expert at creating his own products, this millionaire is an expert at creating sites that sell, this millionaire is an expert at getting free traffic to his site, this millionaire is an expert at getting high search engine rankings, blah, blah blah.
You get idea, Iím sure.
I am sure you have heard saying ďToo many cooks spoil brothĒ. Well, Iíve expanded that a little. ďToo many net gurus cause brain freezeĒ.
Think about it. If you have been marketing online or researching how to market online for months or even years you have, no doubt, learnt a hell of a lot of valuable information. But once you have that knowledge what do you do with it?
I donít know about you but there have been times when Iíve felt so overloaded with all information running around my head that Iíve not been able to even switch my pc on for days!
I read so much about what this expert had to say and what that expert had to say that I just didnít know who to follow anymore. I became so overloaded and overwhelmed that my brain just froze. I didnít know what to do and who to follow so I did what comes naturallyÖabsolutely nothing!
I remember actually holding my head in my hands feeling totally lost and stressed out to max because I so wanted to succeed but there was just so much information to take in that I hadnít learnt yet how to cope. I donít know if you have ever felt like that but it was a pretty exhausting and eye-opening process for me.
As I sat in front of my pc and opened my email address that receives all ezines that I subscribe to I thought: There must be an easier way. Why does this seem so hard?
And then it was like a little light bulb going off in my head. I was making this way too hard on myself, putting myself under way too much presssure, and it was all absolutely unnecessary. As it usually is, answer was right in front of my face :O).
Why did I have an ezine inbox with over 400 ezines it in a matter of days? What for? So I can sit here over two hours and go through them all, day after day?
Is my time not more valuable than that? Did I not have more important things to do?
Of course I do. Iíd spent so much time working harder and not smarter. Thank goodness I finally figured it out.
I went through 400+ ezines in my email directory and was ruthless :O). I kept my subscription to emails I new were good results pullers and high content publications, unsubscribed to ones that were just filled with ads, and kept my subscriptions to newsletters and ezines that I gravitated to because I liked their style, their input or their quirkiness.
