Social Musings 101: Concentration

So how many times have you been doing a project or working on a task and then a random thought pops into your head and you think about something else. Then you think about something else, and then you start doing that and stop what you are currently doing to go and focus on some other area. Then you come back to what you started and then the phone rings and off you go to finish that. So today this is a reminder to concentrate on the task at hand and get it done. After completion then focus on the next goal or project. Okay, so this isn’t saying you cant work on multiple projects but when you work on that one project stay on the strip.

Skillshare is a great way to learn the advertising business from the outside in.

So here I am posting twice in one day. Wow. I know. Well sometimes circumstances happen to us in life threw no fault of our own that things happen to us. Some we can control and some our beyond our control. But then you ask yourself if you could and are capable of becoming someone then why aren’t you.  So what does this have to do with Skillshare and the advertising business.  Well as you can see since this isn’t an advertising site, I currently dj, and do kid’s parties and thigns along those lines. But I also feel in my hear that I can make a great contribution in the world of advertising and marketing since the profession (from my perspective) combines creativity with desire, willpower and determination. A skill set that I said to myself I possess. But then the hard questions come up like but you don’t work in advertising you work in teaching. Yes true. But I always say where there’s a will there’s a way because we all heard of stories of single moms with 3 kids who go back to school while maintaining a full time job and a family.  So I said to myself well the only thing stopping me then is knowledge. Oh do I get the knowledge that I need to get to where I want to go. After googling advertising classes and courses online endlessly I stumbled upon, tada…….. www.skillshare.com  One of the classes that was extremely helpful for me was a class by Seth Godin. Here is a link to his blog.  http://sethgodin.typepad.com/ He really brakes down what it means to be a marketer and advertiser.  Most people my self including just think, oh yes, I wanna do advertising because I’m creative. But if you take a few of his courses you”ll understand with the advent of digital being creative is good, but who are trying to reach with this creativity.  Where do they stand, what do they do, he literally takes years of knowledge and research and breaks it down for you to understand.  I know look at my own plans for my business ideas in a new light and new direction.  I have also taken other classes on there as well. But basically because of the openness of the internet you can learn anything you want. But when it comes to reaching people you better know you want to reach, how, and why they would wanna interact with you. Don’t take my word for it.  Go to the website and Check it Out.
