This post suggests that we should not get distracted by digital stuff and just wander in a digital swamp because this would be similar to standing in front of a forest for hours. Instead, we should think about what we want to do and just go to places where we think we would like to spend some time.

Seth writes about how entrepreneurs should be clear about what they own and what they are good at in order to increase their business.
Seth compares this problem with a freelancer.
It is very difficult for freelancers to be clear about what they own or what they are good at, because there is a lot of competition.
This leads them to create problems for themselves when they start new projects and try to get paid for work that they don’t enjoy doing. This problem can be avoided by being clear about what you own and what you are good at in each project.

We have many good things in our lives.
Seth states that we should be thankful for our good health, our family, our friends, our education, our jobs, our cars, our homes, etc. He thinks that we should be grateful for our opportunities.
But we should not ignore the negative accidents. If we are happy with our lives, we should not be upset by accidents that do not happen or by things that go wrong.
We should think critically about what is useful to us and try to improve ourselves and our lives by doing things that are useful for us.
