It's easy to get stuck in the weeds. It happens to me all the time. I get caught up in the day to day sprint of media production and dissemination, and the next thing I know, I'm looking at nothing but weeds again.
So how do we get out of the weeds and get the bird's eye view that we need to do media well? I didn't fully realize the answer to this question until I started writing this blog.
I realized that instead of trying to climb out of the weeds every now and then, why not get rid of the weeds altogether? Why not cut away the excess of my days and focus on the core content needs to be expressed and emphasized?
Theoretically, this sounds simple. Practically, this is difficult. But all of us need to address the clutter and distractions at the root and the get rid of those weeds altogether; hit mute on the noise we're washing away in; put do not disturb on the doors to our brains so we're not overloading our thoughts and dreams.
In other words, we need to do whatever we need to do to pull out those weeds, and in the process, get our work out of the weeds to and put it in the places it needs to be.
