Are You Busily Boondoggling?
BOONDOGGLE IS A FUNNY WORD.
THIS IS A BOONDOGGLING BLOG. (SAY THAT 3 TIMES FAST!) lol
It kind of reminds me of one of my other blog posts: Marketing Your Mindboggling Blog
Mindboggling and Boondoggling. Haha! Where on earth does my mind go?! lol
Boondoggling often means to work with little or no value, done merely to look busy. It's where we sometimes get side-tracked with other things that get in our head while working, causing us to get off course. It is also an activity or work that is wasteful or pointless, but that shows the appearance of having purpose. To boondoggle may be to waste money or time on questionable or somewhat unnecessary projects. Stop your mind from wandering.
ARE YOU BOONDOGGLING?
I think I did a long time ago...
Back in the day when I was in Brownies and Girl Scouts, a common craft was Boondoggling. We created long strips of different colored plastic strings, woven and intertwined in a certain way to make really neat key chains, belts, necklaces, bracelets, etc. I spent a great deal of time busily Boondoggling. LOL. The end result was a detailed and thick braid of colors that everyone thought was pretty cool.
SO WHY BOONDOGGLE? IT WAS FUN!
Was that the best use of my time? Maybe back then as a child, I thought so, when I didn't have as much responsibility. After all, it was great fun that has given me wonderful memories.
It may also be fun to get wrapped up in all kinds of interests when working--online especially. That is the beauty of our affiliate businesses--to have fun while we work! I understand that it is our job to implement Social Media and other platforms. However, we can delve too far into each activity, too.
THE BEST USE OF MY TIME.
But now, even though I love to knit (another skillful, yet tedious task), I feel the best use of my time is to work at WA on my businesses in order to see substantial life accomplishments. Taking the time to build upon my dream is productive and quite satisfying.--Something I would not call boondoggling.
WHAT ABOUT MULTI-TASKING?
Although some of us can multi-task to best use our time productively, for others, that can lead to being too busy and loosing focus. Trying to do too many things at once might only confuse matters, and then nothing gets accomplished!
IN LIFE, THERE'S A TIME TO HIT THE GROUND RUNNING AND A TIME TO BOONDOGGLE.
So, make the choice that when you're working on making a substantial income here, you fully concentrate on the tasks at hand to gradually develop your very lucrative business. It will happen much sooner than you think if you leave your boondoggling till playtime!
