    What do I think? I think that this is a really good piece – specifically, the associations you’ve used to get the point across regarding FOCUS and METRICS. The book you’ve recommended sounds like a winner. The athlete has to conquer his or herself prior to going out on the field of play to compete against another opposing athlete. Very good, +B.

    For instance, I measure how time and energy I spend working on different aspects of the site, and when I saw that blogging was taken up far too much of my time, I realized that I needed to stop doing it everyday.

    Once I saw the metrics, I knew I couldn’t keep it up long term, but there was a big dilemma: how do I “blog without blogging??? How do I keep such great content churning without taking away from the executive and marketing responsibilities???

    It took me a LOOOONG time to figure out, but with a little bit of inventiveness I finally had the idea to do all my blogging for the week over the week-end instead of daily. Normally I would draft a post at night and finalize it in the early morning (sneaking away during work hours if needed), but now I just bang those babies out in one session…like an assembly line or something.

    This also eliminates transition time: I no longer have to shift between blogging and networking, etc. etc., which is a big drag on efficiency, and I owe it all to the metrics
