I finally spent a few hours getting my social media consulting site set up last night (blancastella.com). In the past week, I have been ultra left brain focused on getting all my accounting in order, which includes doing my bank reconciliations to the penny on computer software. When I do that, my brain somehow feels happier and organized. It is great to be creative, but creativity without order is not good.
What happens to me when I get in this ultra organized mode, I go into this zone, completely focus and tune out from distractions. I hardly twittered or looked at Facebook and no tweet-ups. (The South Florida tech community has constant tweet-ups.)
So I was less than my usual chatty self and got a lot done. But I missed the connections. All this technology and social media integration has become a big part of my life. I suppose I needed the silent time to move forward quickly at another turning point.
Last week, I was going to a social media meeting in downtown Miami and saw this building. From the ground it looks complete. But if you look at the top, it is still under construction. I snapped a quick picture and the thought later came to me that this is how I have rebuilt my life, from the ground up.
It has taken a huge effort, persistence and attention to details. Those are not very fun things for my creative right brain. I believe the effort is paying off and just today got a phone call for a new social media client. It feels good.
