Who Should You Listen To?

social-listening-B2B

I love to learn and it seems there is no shortage of courses, how-to’s, and articles on anything and everything you can think of. That’s actually a good thing because it ensures that you will always be up-to-date on the latest news and skills in the marketplace.

Sometimes though all that information can turn into white noise and lead to a serious case of overwhelm. One article tells you to do one thing, this class tells you to do another, and yet another guru tells you to do something else. How do you know who to listen to?

If you try to read every article, take every class, and listen to all the experts you will find your head overflowing with information; that can lead to paralysis by analysis: trying to take in so much that you actually end up doing nothing.

As I stated at the beginning of this post I love learning, but I also know there is a point when I’ve taken in all I can and then I have to figure out how to make it work. At that point I have to start determining how I’m going to use the skills I just acquired or put into practice the article I just read. The bottom line becomes how can I make the information I’ve received work for me and no one can help me do that better than myself.

No class, article or how-to is going to be solely responsible for my success; they can help contribute to it, but ultimately the person responsible is the person I should listen to more than anyone else: me.
