Media diet – startup style
As promoted in the 4 hour work week a media diet is a nice way save time. For entrepreneurs a different type of media diet is required.
A business trends diet
Here’s how – avoid all business related articles as they pertain to new strategies & trends.
Here’s why – We already know enough to be successful. Our problem is doing the stuff.
Unless we are just starting in the business world – we’ve heard every strategy and the fact is that most ‘new’ business ideas are simple derivatives of business theories which have been around since the birth of commerce. Cables channels and tech stuff is the worst. Who’s got the time to read 86 posts from techcrunch every day? – not me.
We ought just trust our judgment and make the call that we know enough to get moving…and the rest we’ll learn on the job…. So in the spirit of this blog entry, ignore the articles you were about to read and get back to your stuff.
