Collecting Effort like Rainwater

Collecting Effort like Rainwater | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

SUMMARY: Although I didn’t know it when I started, the addition of sub-blogs to collect my thoughts into topical areas has helped me define a content generation system that is helping me bootstrap my way into other challenges. The big insight is this: for me, capturing many small changes is more effective than trying to plot giant changes.

 

When thinking of making a significant change in our life, it’s often accompanied by grand visions of preparation: stockpiling of resources, coordination of manpower, synchronization of swatches, and so forth.
