Energise your innovation – just get moving

Don’t let the pace of change, in any form of digital media or content creation, hold you back from being creative, from expressing your ideas and input to the change you want to see in your newsroom.

I pore over content and my feed reader, trying to perfect comment, and content, so that it is comprehensive, definitive, and unable to be questioned. I feel the need to cover the issue from all angles, as if I must attempt to encompass the breadth and wealth of thought out there. And yet I’m overwhelmed by the quantity of more, better, reasoned, experienced content creators out there, and so hesitate to speak.

The speed of change is so quick that, even if I could reach that point of perfection, it would be out of date within days, hours, or even minutes. So, inspired by this post by Bryan Murley from Innovation in College Media, I commit to not being overwhelmed.
In that post, Bryan harks back to something he wrote in 2006.

We can’t allow ourselves to get so overwhelmed with the pace of change that we become immobilized by the sheer volume of change that is taking place.

And with that, I welcome you back to the earley edition.

It is not that comment will be spurious or ill-formed, but I will shoot my thoughts and ideas on digital innovation from the hip with confidence, within reason and, hopefully, with an accuracy that will make my contribution to the crowd worthwhile.

Read on, friends.
