Seth Godin often prompts me to think different. And this morning was no different, he essentially asked the question "what do you do when you start your working day?
" Do you consume online media or do you create. I believe the morning sets the tone for the day so how you start is important, and most days I start by consuming online media. This has got to change for me. I consider myself a creative and I need to seize this important and productive time to create something. This is how I intend to flip my mornings around, I will start my daily online activity with an act of creation. Depending on the time available it will either be;
- with a short time, I will reflect upon my learning and my professional life and post a tweet that I believe would have value to those who follow me.
- with a longer time, I will use a pomodoro to add to my blog.
I will consume online media through-out the day using my netbook or smartphone. This is what I do already, so... I hope this new way of starting the day will add to the collective intelligence of everyone's day rather than my just lurking within the collective stream.
