60 seconds of your time............

Your attention span sucks. Nothing personal, but it's true.
The bad news? It's getting worse.
As we go further into the future and technology grows faster than we can evolve, we can not keep up. We are trying though. That brings me back to the first sentence. Our attention span sucks because of all the information we are offered. If you go to a website and it does not catch your attention right away....guess what?? CLICK! Next site please.
If a news story can't get you interested in the first 30 seconds....you will move on.
This is both a blessing and a curse. It helps us weed out some of the loads of crap we find on the net. It also causes us to miss a lot of what may be good because the people providing the content just don't get it yet.
As someone who writes blogs, does radio, and makes video content for you tube, I can tell you the points I am making today are always kept in mind.
Today's blog goes out to the people trying to reach others as well as you click happy surfers out there.
Remember to get to the point and remember to give 60 seconds to a site.
We have a vast amount of knowledge available to us and we don't have time for any bullshit.
Nothing is going to change our lack of attention, face it...
The good news?? I kept this blog short.
