I unsubscribed from almost all of my newsletters this morning.
I'm road tripping from Seattle to Houston, and I haven't checked my email for almost a week now. I was surprised to see how many of my emails are from newsletters, and how little I missed reading them.
I get such cool newsletters too- one on the future of the automotive industry, one on the ins and outs of what goes on in China, one on VC deals and where funding is headed.
These things all feel important to stay up to date on, and I get a kick out of being sophisticated and knowing about what's going on in the world.
But none of them are my core focus right now. And when it comes to what I really need to be doing... I'm not doing it.
I'm starting to realize my day-to-day is one big distraction. I've designed my day to AVOID doing the work that matters to me.
Why? Because I'm terrified!
But maybe I'm ready to start acting despite the fear instead of faking it.
