Why selling everything might be too much

I get it. Trust me I REALLY get it. You want to sell EVERYTHING YOU KNOW. The thing with your Thing is that when you realise you’ve got this better, quicker, smarter, cheaper, more detailed, simply ‘better’ way of doing something, you want to help–and you want to give people EVERYTHING you have.

Look out the window…

2

Looking out the window gives you time to think and ponder. I use it productively to come up with ideas and solutions. For me sometimes thinking too hard about something doesn’t give the best solution. A watched pot never boils and all that :)

One of the things I love about social media is the insight it gives you into how other people do their Thing and live their life (not technically snooping if people are sharing, right?).
