Sometimes You Just Have to Slow Down

By Ian Fernando

Every now and then I get an email that says how I get to do so many things and have it be successful. Well, today I will talk about how do just slow things down. I swear I think I have ADD with it comes to ideas. But sometimes you just have to slow down and look at your task list and re focus.

I have been releasing too many things and sometimes I look at my task and say slow the frig down! I have even been slacking on my own campaigns my margins have dropped from what my average is. So now I am looking to re organize a couple things.

So I have to SLOW DOWN! Every idea does not have to get implemented but can be done in time. Lately I have been doing a lot of reorg and trying to see where my focus should be.


With all the work I am doing, affiliate markting, product creations, info marketing, social marketing, going to conferences, blogging, and maintaining all these can be a bitch! SO I am telling you to slow down and not do alot of things at once. I am going to be slowing down myself, if you noticed my blog posts has not been consistant. I will be writing on my blog though because it gives me a break t just write what the hell is on my mind.

How I am concentrating my ideas:

  • I have written my daily tasks
  • Task that are incomplete, I carry over to the next
  • I write weekly goals as well, these goals are much larger than my daily tasks

I also have been doing a lot of partnerships because I need more time to focus. The past product and current product I am working on are all partnered. This gives me more time to do what I have to do and help me focus on certan aspects of marketing.

Sometimes sitting in front of your PC can stop yu from focusing on yur current project or idea. I personally have to start focusing and completing projects and campaigns. I need to maybe get rid of a monitor or even pc. I have 2 PCs on all the time one PC just for monitoring and stats, while my other monitors have other windows open like tweetdeck, email, winamp, etc.

Maybe I need to just remove the clutter and just have one window open on what I am currently doing. But I can get easily distracted, if an idea pop ups I write it on my whiteboard and the I start working on it, slowly. I then realized I digress and I refocus myself.

My mind just keep working and it is good but also bad when I am trying to do some keyword research which isn't the most fun but needs to be done. So I have to slow my thinking a bit well not really but be more focus on what is currently working and stick with it.

So I am going to SLOW DOWN some of my marketing ideas and FOCUS more! Focus like a Ford Whip!

What is your advice? How do you work with having waytoo many ideas? How do you keep yourself calm on a daily basis?
