Getting in front of the wave

I feel like I’m behind the wave. Six presentations or speeches in 3 weeks has taken a toll on me, and most specifically, email. I’m still digging through email, so please bear with me as I get through it. If you’ve anything urgent, and I’ve not responded, please email again, I’ll get through the archives as best as possible.

Maybe I should start to read Tim Ferris’s book, which is really about time management, the Four Hour Work Week, when you read his list of accomplishments, you may question how much you’ve really done in life. Apparently, he announced at his Friday’s party that he’s already going to be a best seller. I’m pretty skeptical of self-help books, and I’m a believer that if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. I’ve met Tim a couple of times, and I’ll see if I can talk to him more when he comes to PodTech this week. Author aside, what do you think about books like this?

The speaking will take a back seat for a while, I’m going to focus on building out the Web Strategy Video show over the next few weeks. My next engagement? I’m heading to Singapore to speak about Video and Audio for the enterprise at the IX Conference.

While I sit at an out door patio in the sunny bay area catching up on email, I can’t but help be thankful I’ve cut IM out of my life. But then again, email is for old people like me.
