Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop to visit with me. I have recently signed up and got involved with the Twitter experience. My Twitter address is http://twitter.com/secondchancetol/ for anyone who may like to follow me. As with everything there is a learning curve. My new experience with Twitter has been helpful in various ways.
After setting up my account with Twitter and becoming acclimated with the twitter process, I began the process of following and being followed. During the past week my followers have increased from 15 to 121. With each new follower I received an email notification. In response I took the time and energy to both follow each of the individuals and then to leave each of those individuals a direct message. The process was time and energy consuming.
Time flies. It’s up to you to be the navigator. Robert Owen
As the week unfolded more and more of my time and energy was being used to manage the twitter process. When I realized that my time and energy were being depleted I decided to make some changes. I made the decision to make the twitter process work for me, rather than allowing myself to be driven by the twitter process. Consequently I made the decision to limit my twitter experience and process to individuals and organizations with similar motivations — to encourage, motivate and empower.
I made the decision to be empowered by the twitter process, rather than be driven by the twitter process.
I resolve to be empowered by the process, rather than depleted and distracted by the process. I can learn from the process and then make the process work for me. I can celebrate the process, because I know that I am a work in process. I do not have to be bogged down by the process because with everything there is a learning curve.
“Insist on yourself, never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only a half possession…Do that which is assigned to you, and you can not hope too much or dare too much.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
