Analogy of
Shiny Object Syndrome

This relates to some of us and
our attitudes towards

Some of us never see any
results because we bail
way too soon.

Let’s say you sign up for a luxury
cruise to blah blah
land.All of a
sudden the ship has issues. So
the Captain
issues orders for
everyone aboard to begin
working on
the ship immediately.
At first you don’t mind. But after
awhile you get tired of all this
labor you were not suppose
be doing.
Then, much to your
delight off in the distance you
see a ship
and you think I’ll jump
off of this one and swim over to
ship and get a ride so I
won’t have to work so much.
Over the side you go and start
swimming toward the shiny
of that ship except you don’t
make it in time and they
you by.
You look around (like
looking into your inbox) and here

comes an even bigger ship,
bigger than any you’ve ever
before. Off you go
swimming as hard as you can.
You pretty much make it to the
this big bright shiny ship but you
think it
would be way too hard to
get on board because it’s so tall
might not get to the top and
that would be a failure in your

So, yep, you give up on
this idea because here coming

straight toward you comes a
smaller vessel.
You think I can easily

successful with reaching a nice
solid deck.
So off you go swimming as hard
as you’ve ever swam before…OH,
did I mention this little boat was even
shinier than those other big
Yep, you jumped off the first
boat while it was still miles
shore. Everyone else who
stayed on board that ship will
success because they
endured the all the hard labor
and made
sure the ship they
were on made it safely to a

You see the person that jumped
off the first ship started to swim

in circles chasing one
opportunity after another. They
were chasing
one shiny ship
after another. Never making it to
shore because
everywhere he
swam there was some sort of
obstacle he didn’t want
to deal
