OT: Dig one Deep Well, not infinite shallow holes - Stop Wasting Time

In this age of miracles and distraction, discipline is key. 


I truly marvel at the age we live in now. I can take my time and space and directly share it with you in your time and space. 

But, I know that I am not the only person whose time and space you are tuning into these days. There are many, many others competing for bandwidth in your world. Now that the Internet, youtube, media and promotion are available to anyone, recognizing quality over quantity is the biggest issue. 

Information becoming knowledge wisdom being diluted by your need to be entertained is more important than ever. 

The information age is dead and we are now in the "Distraction" Age. 

Dig one Deep Well, not infinite shallow holes - Stop Wasting Time.



Same Amount of Time Spent, but when Focused and Disciplined, we discover the true gems, when we dig deep in any subject, than just merely scratching the surface.


This is analogous to the image above, where instead of digging many small holes, we concentrate our energy on the same path and dig a very deep hole, that eventually strikes water - or oil!  

This is the real challenge of these times. Filtering through the morass of information is really needed now, otherwise you run the risk of being entertained into mediocrity, or even worse "stupidity". This is a shame. It is easy to understand why you may be doing this and it is easy to fix.  Not only is this inefficient, but it is a waste of time, and our time is much shorter here than we think.


Note: The above is an excerpt from Sam Geppi at http://www.samgeppi.com/ I added a sentence or two to it.
