True Calling vs. Shiny Object

How to know what's real and what's just a distraction

From time to time, every one of us gets a case of “shiny object syndrome” – that is, we get confused and have a hard time differentiating between what actions and projects are REALLY going to be life- and business-enhancing and what’s just another “shiny object” to distract us from our true work or give us the ILLUSION of momentum.

So what’s the cure?

Jess and I took a stab at answering this quandary of a question in the video below which you’ll find at our new Interwebs co-habitat, Head over there now to watch the short conversation between us, then be sure to subscribe and chime in.

I won’t always be posting here at AY every time we launch a new interview at Heart to Heart, and we’d love to make this an ongoing 3-way conversation (us two + YOU). So the more you reveal to us about what’s helpful for you, what topics you want us to cover, and what you’d like more support with, the better equipped we’ll be to serve you.

As always, thanks so much for being here and contribution to the bigger picture with your focus and participation. If you heart the interview, please tell us so and share it with friends and colleagues who’ll heart it too.

Enjoy your families, food, and friends over the Holidays.

Love you,

    can yılmaz diyor ki:48 yaşında yalnız ve kitap okumamış(çünkü yol hakkında kimseye danışmamış) ve hatta hayatını yeni sorgulamaya başlamış bi eleman gibi geldi bana. ayrıca iletişim sorunları yaşıyor, bu sorun kendi gerçekliğinin ifadesiyle alakalı yoksa yüzeysel iletişimde sıkıntı yaşamıyor olabilir. nereden mi çıkardım korkuyorum demek istiyor diyemiyor korktuğunu başka kelimelerle ve hatta ses çıkararak ifade etmeye çalışıyor. fena salladım ama.:) neyse okan elemanla aynı yaşta oluşun gözümden kaçmadı.


    That takes us up to the next level. Great posting.


    I guess finding useful, reliable information on the internet isn’t hopeless after all.
