Attention and the Web Worker (or Affiliate Marketer)

I waste too much time.

I know this, but I’ve been working on it. My time is pretty valuable and I’ve spread myself pretty thin between ReveNews, AffiliateFortuneCookies, GeekCast, this site, my affiliate sites, my consulting gigs… not to mention my baby, wife, family, dogs and Nascar watching.

Attention is a particular problem for people in the affiliate marketing industry because we don’t have one job where we work for one person.

One of my favorite web personalities is Merlin Mann (who I suggested as an Affiliate Summit keynote candidate), and his new vid hits on this attention problem.

So, this video is more aimed to general web workers, but it’s definitely appropriate for those of us in performance marketing:
