I’m tired. I’m tired of the same information about what I should and shouldn’t do to help grow my business using social media tools. I’m tired of other people telling me what coding languages I should be learning if I want to grow my web design company. I’m tired of people scoffing at each other for calling themselves or others experts, gurus, whatever. I’m tired of the judgment calls, the negative ‘#fails’ that seem to come out at every turn these days and just complaining in general.
Yes, the internet gives us a voice. Yes, it gives businesses good insight into what customers are saying about their brand and/or products. Yes, it allows for more connections and relationship building. Yes, there is tremendous potential. Yes, it’s a ton of work to get up and running. Yes, it is possible to screw things up pretty easily and yes that screw up can easily spread if you’re a larger brand. But really, where is the use in pointing out yet another#fail unless it’s accompanied with a lesson? It’s so easy to point out flaws and grumble out our distaste at others actions. But to what benefit? How does that get any of us anywhere?

I’ve listened and listened. Now I’m tired. I want to do, not talk about doing. The beautiful thing about the internet? I can DO just that. I can choose seek out other doers, turn off the complainers (I do realize I am being one of them right now…) and make things happen. Today, I choose to DO and to create…
What are you tired of? What do you choose to do about it?
