I live on an old working farm.
In one of the fields, a line of old telephone lampposts run down the middle of it.
A hawk sits on top of one of them each day.
99% of its time is just watching.
If it watches with utter focus, the 1% counts.
It doesn’t try to be busy.
For the hawk, being busy requires energy.
Which would require more food.
Which would require more busyness.
And on and on.
The hawk taught me a lesson.
Let me give you an example.
On social media, we try to follow too many people.
Which soon gets us to visit an old pal: Overwhelm.
So, instead, on Twitter, I create a list.
It is called; Watch like a hawk.
It can’t be more than ten people.
Five is optimum.
Right now, we are about to build a new website.
So the one that breaks all the rules for me is a crypto website: https://yearn.finance/
I study as if it was a juicy fat mouse.
On Instagram, I am paying attention to: https://www.instagram.com/jacquemus/
My teenage daughters love him.
He knows how to take a launch and turn it into an event.
Another juicy fat mouse.
Another one they are raving about is: https://www.instagram.com/thepangaia/?hl=en
So, I follow and watch everything single thing they do.
That hawk is smart.
