Since my trip to Paris and my mum’s last few days in London, things have been moving at warp speed ahead. With deadlines coming ever so closer, and admin building up, blog work being neglected, it seemed I was finding very little time to do what I was supposed to be working on-that is my client work. My mistake was simple and that was I was trying to do it all. All with the help of some people.
One thing I noticed about our entitled millennial world is that we’re very careless with our time. To contextualize sort of the idea I’m talking about-after having a long rant session with Sade one Saturday evening, it was apparent to us that so many of the people we deem as ‘successful’ were actually in this trap of emotional instability. To be a blogger, you have to be quite resilient since much of your life is available for the world to see. We are open to criticism and at times, it may not be the most constructive. With this in mind, Sade and I spoke about the nature of how many bloggers that we know of spend endless hours comparing themselves to others, taking comments to heart and lamenting over the opportunities they may not receive even though they are fully aware that not all collaborations are made the same. That nature tends to suppress productivity and in turn bring the industry down, and worse, bring your peers down. This is just a single example of a greater picture.
