Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it.

106 Excuses That Prevent You From Ever Becoming Great

You don’t have the money

Finances are a sensitive issue.

You might not have the money right now, but there are plenty of ways to increase your income.

If you have to scour freelancer sites to aquire a hundred dollars here and there, do it.

Any money you make freelancing, save it to put towards your dream project.

Can’t afford to do that?

Create a strict budget, and set aside a portion of your income.

Don’t believe what the news tells you, money is everywhere, and people spend it every day.

Right now, someone is hiring someone just like you.
Influencers - by Chris Brogan

There’s been a whole lot of people bitching about Klout today. My feeling is that if you base your success on a number or a system that you have no control over, you are fucked.

Do things honestly, organically and don’t forget old fashioned conversation and networking employing whatever online and offline tools you can use. We are so caught up in these silly social numbers games and it’s a damned pity.

Work on being the best you can be. If you have a good score, that’s nice but you are not a number. Numbers can be gamed, authenticity can not be.

Loved what Chris Brogan wrote today >> “Influencers” A MUST READ for anyone who is “bummed out about Klout”…
