I love this quote, there is a variation of it that goes, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” It's the notion that even though we desire change, that desire is only one part, the other part is changing the way we think, then changing how we act.
Perspective is a crazy bitch sometimes. It can sometimes be mistaken for reality, but it's not. Perspective can change. We can change. It's just a matter of approaching a problem from a different angle.
When it comes to blogging, there are a lot of examples of how our thinking can get us into trouble. Whether it be pleading people to “follow us” or feeling down about our invisibility, it just means that our thoughts and our actions are not working. So they need to change. Maybe it's just a tweak, maybe it's a total breakdown and start again type thing… either way, it's not the end of the world! It's all part of the process.
So if you're feeling like you're banging your head against a brick wall, just stop. Maybe it's your thinking… and if you keep thinking along those lines, you'll keep banging your head against the wall. So stop. Think another way. You just might be surprised how it changes things.
