On this week’s episode of his Akimbo podcast, Seth Godin answers a listener question about focusing – more specifically, how to focus when there are so many ideas that appeal.

One way is to to blog; not as a way to just share ideas, but also to get rid of them – to stop carrying them around.

I suffer from creating, collecting, and carrying around many ideas. They probably weigh me down more than I’d like to admit. 

So you’ll be seeing more ideas on this blog. Partly because I want to share them, but also because it’s a good way for me to get rid of them – to lighten my own load and to focus. 

In one way it sounds selfish, but I hope it will prove to be the opposite – more ideas to give away to others, and more space for me to focus on doing good things for others.

Let’s keep getting rid of ideas.
