Paralysis By Analysis

June 7th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Do you often find yourself immersed in your Analytics data? Do you compare your site stats with your Alexa traffic details or your Spotplex ranking? Do you check Technorati a couple of times a day to see if your authority score has increased?

Do you open up Webmaster Tools every day to see if you’ve increased your link count and then click on them to see why other people are linking to you?

Do you spend a lot of time checking your inbox, your Gmail and Hotmail accounts? Do you whizz over to your CJ control panel to see if you’ve earned any money today? Do you spend hours digesting your RSS feeds, starring them to read later and making copious notes? Does your AdSense account tell you that your last login was less than 2 hours ago?

How often do you check your StumbleUpon and Digg accounts to see how many of your stories have been voted on? Do you regularly check Facebook and MySpace to see if anyone has written on your wall or sent you a message?

Do you regularly get to the end of your day and think “Hell, I haven’t achieved anything today”?

    You and me both, John! The post was borne out of the frustration I was feeling at having wasted another day.

    Needless to say I’m currently reading up on various time management sites and taking notes. In between looking at my Analytics charts, of course 😉

    What? You have no proof I do that! Me Defensive? Ok, maybe a little.

    I could have gone on but I got distracted by the alarm going off to tell me it was time to look at my AdSense stats.
