Setting your own pace
It can be exhausting trying to keep up with everything. All the blog posts to read, the tools to try, the processes to adopt. It's the bitter sweet way of the web.
On one hand, it's a privilege to have access to so much insightful and helpful information from experts and peers. On the other hand, where's the time to digest all the content and then implement it? Similarly, as you get your head around one way of doing things, another post pops into your Twitter stream and you feel like you have to start again.
In 2016 I'm not going to try and keep up with everything. That's not to say I won't keep reading and learning from all the wonderful resources and people I have access to. It is to say however that I won't be putting any pressure on myself to know everything and to try all the things.
I'll be focused on what I'm doing as a content strategist at GatherContent. I can evaluate my own processes and methods, I can determine what is successful for us and what isn't. And in between all of this, I'll read and learn, but I won't feel the need to act on all the information that I consume.
I'm going to set my own pace.
