The Price We Pay for Progress

Written by Leigh Butler

Why am I so frustrated?

I'll tell you why I am so frustrated in two simple words - The Internet. I frequently go torepparttar Internet to find information, but once I get there I just don't know where to start.

Search engines use to work really well when I wanted to find information on a topic. But these days it's very likely that you will get over a million results when you search for information on any given topic. I've even tried narrowing my search to no avail. Talk about frustrating!

Checking my email is no less frustrating than searching for information. Spam seems to berepparttar 102019 king ofrepparttar 102020 Internet. I receive email from people and places I've never heard of before. I've tried getting new email accounts butrepparttar 102021 spam seems to follow me wherever I go. Talk about frustrating!

Then there are those annoying pop-up and pop-under windows that seem to appear out of nowhere. Who came up with that idea anyway? Talk about frustrating! Pop-ups do a wonderful job of diverting my attention away fromrepparttar 102022 information I went torepparttar 102023 website to look for.

Oh. And of course there are those websites that have words and pictures dancing around torepparttar 102024 sound of my favorite tunes. Not! It's a shame that inrepparttar 102025 time it takes for those pages to load, I can surf to five other sites.

You may wonder why I continue to surfrepparttar 102026 web if it is truly such a frustrating experience for me. Better yet, why do I run an online business if being online is so frustrating?

You Don't Have To Be Perfect

Written by John Colanzi

I don't know about you, but I wasted a lot of time in my quest for freedom. I worried about making mistakes. That was my biggest mistake of all.

You spend your youth being graded by your teachers. You take endless tests rating your performance.

Your peers rate your dress and your actions. You are being conditioned to live in a world of A's, B's and C's. You judge your worth byrepparttar opinions of others.

How do I know?

I've been there.

Every time I wanted to make a change, I would hesitate. What if I made a mistake? What if I looked stupid.

You know what? It doesn't matter.

If you want to accomplish your goals, you must decide that it's ok to make a mistake. You are not being graded anymore.

No matter what you do, some people will not approve.

Once I realized that, I was free to experiment. I could test new ideas. The feeling was liberating.
