This week I came across an article about “hitting the wall” with social media (via social meda 🙂). I thought it was a good read, and it was certainly easy for me to relate this to many conversations I have had about the OSSEMOOC project.
Getting to the wall seems to be an all too familiar story, the “too” problem – takes too much time, too few characters, too many choices, too much online time, too hard to organize, too … well, you get the picture.
Yet, when people stick at it and get beyond these questions and concerns by finding connections, relevance and meaning, they don’t go back. Learn to channel information, improve meaning or context, contribute and balance time & work flow in new and more powerful ways.
There are some nice tips about setting realistic goals and pacing yourself. You can read the full article at social media today. Why not apply some of these tips to the 30 day program at OSSEMOOC (see sidebar).
Make your “wall experience” a journey,
a personal journey!!!
Perhaps you will find that your journey will have this result!
