All I can say is WOW! It's amazing the amount of cr@p that I have accumulated over the years...
Software apps, plr stuff, graphic packs, mini-site templates just for starters. 99% of this stuff has never been used, and I guess will never be used.
So out it goes. All up it was well over 15GB. These were all items that I purchased and downloaded because in itself, they seemed and probably are great little tools. However, the accumulation of this stuff has also cost me untold sums of money and of course, wasted time reading sales copy and downloading.
So, after 10 years online, I confess that I am a cyber hoarder. I see things, I read the copy, and I buy it... believing that I will eventually use it. At first it was because I thought that / was convinced that it was something that I needed to make money (shiny object syndrome)... then later I accumulated with the intention of using and applying.
Not so my friends. Never happened.
The lesson is that you should not buy stuff that you don't immediately need.
I learnt a few years back that the best way to deal with info overload was to only learn on a need to know basis. In other words, if your business requires you to write an article, then only then do you invest in an article writing course.
The key to this is to start out with some sort of plan. Understand the steps involved in executing the plan... and then acquire skills and knowledge as required when executing the plan. All the rest is a waste of time and money in my opinion.
Don't sweat on missing out on stuff. The reality is - and experience has shown - that most widgets become obsolete very quickly and there is always a newer, better widget being released.
You will always be better off simply reinvesting your money into the marketing and promotion of your website and products.
If you are like me, you probably have a hard drive full of valuable, but useless cuber junk. So let me ask you: Has it made you rich yet (i am talking about the stuff you haven't used)?
Food for thought.
Have a great day!
