Go Deeper, Not Wider

I recently read a great blog post at Raptitude and thought that the start of the year would be a perfect time to share it. More than a resolution, maybe think of it as something nice to remember and put into action whenever possible.

The title says it all, instead of getting distracted by the new shiny thing (trend, gadget, project, etc.) we should attempt to go deeper on the things we already have or know, the things we’ve already acquired and committed to enjoying.

The guiding philosophy is “Go deeper, not wider.” Drill down for value and enrichment instead of fanning out.

Instead of buying that new self-help book, read the one you recently bought. Instead of taking that trendy class you saw online, revisit the one you purchased but never got to finish. Maybe just sharpen those skills you already have instead of learning a new one…go deeper.

The whole post is absolutely worth reading, and you might as well bookmark the site. I’ve found many of David’s posts inspiring.
