Shiny Object Syndrome – Do You Have it?


Strolling through a garden center display, I stopped. How exciting, and unexpected, to see beautiful and shiny objects glinting in the garden.

Captivated by the reflections and the unexpected shimmer, I momentarily forgot why I was there: to buy plants. This is the type of place that draws me to dream about perrenials, shrubberies and roses.

As ultimate show stoppers, shiny objects can divert us from our path and draw us in. Social Media Land is a Shiny Object Syndrome paradise. New apps, new networks, new connections all distract from the foundation that needs tending.

With a steady stream of new, new, new!!!! it's easy to get diverted from what works. How do deal with Shiny Object Syndrome?
