Shiny New Object Syndrome


It’s so easy to get distracted. New shiny objects come out and they have the potential to lead us off our path.

“Maybe this is it! Maybe this will work!” These are the words you tell yourself to convince yourself that you should take this new direction.

Especially if you’ve been plodding along, doing your part and waiting for something miraculous to happen.

Stay the course.

Shiny new objects aren’t always what they claim to be.

You’ll know it wasn’t worth it when you see someone doing what you were supposed to be doing and experiencing great success.

Stay the course and forego those shiny new objects.
