There is so much opportunity in competitive web publishing today, it is literally overwhelming some good people.
The American population is being killed by abundance. The poorly-acknowledged nearly epidemic proportion of metabolic diseases resulting from over-eating has led to a very obese, very sick population of health care consumers.
Nearly every mainstream individual has plenty to eat. Over half are diabetic or pre-diabetic, and/or hypertensive or pre-hypertensive.
At the same time, half of America is being medicated for anxiety.
I am witnessing a parallel experience in internet business world.
There is so much opportunity to achieve with internet publishing, that many entrepreneurs, “self-starters”, hustlers, and hard-workers are facing so many choices, they can’t choose — and it’s killing them.
Many are so caught up in the short game of try-then-pivot, that they are failing to achieve at all. While the Tech Giants are cashing in, year after year after year.
If you work in the tech trenches you know many examples of this…. but may not admit that they are what they are.
You may collect a $150,000 salary for showing up and work every day and being clever in navigating the hyperactive workplace dynamic. But you see it as “not enough”.
You may be a freelancer with no “show up” requirements, secretly carrying on the equivalent of 3 “normal” jobs while 3 different payers cut you bi-weekly checks for your “full time commitment” to their companies, yet to be honest you feel “under appreciated”.
You bought some domains 10 years ago for pennies, held them for a few years, and then “let them go” because they were not worth yet another annual renewal fee. Someone else is now trading them for $4000 each.
You have it so good, you don’t know it. You’re over playing the short game, and failing at the long game.
You’re suffocating in opportunity.
