Trading your Attention
Attention is super expensive.
Trade it to the bidder with the highest return on investment.
Not to the bidder with immediate and short term returns.
Ask yourself, what do I need to pay attention to now that would yield the most profitable result for me in the next 5/10 years?
Instablog, Nairaland, and all of those other gist platforms are pleasing to read now but have very low returns in the nearest future.
“I just want to be updated” is only a good excuse if it is a profession you are venturing into.
Instead use your attention on things that you want to venture into.
Attention is the currency for the digital age.
