In this post I’ll be looking at the question of how I got stuck writing my blog and setting up a business so soon after just beginning, why that happened and what I decided to do about it.
I posted my first blog and then went very quiet. What happened?
I’ll tell you exactly what happened, I got swamped with information and choices of where to go and so I got stuck. I had so many things
I could do I ended up not really doing anything, or at least not seeing anything through. I was reading so many things on the internet and
getting so many emails from all the different people I’d subscribed to telling me how to be successful in business that I got confused. I got lost in the middle of it all. It was like ‘white noise’ going on all the time. I ended up with a lot of half finished things and nothing really moving.
So, what to do? Now I’ve decided to just tackle one or two things at a time and see how they go, and then when I know how to do those reasonably easily, and then I’ll add in something else.
The first thing on my list is to write again on my blog, and this is it! Box ticked!
It’s simple really, but I’ll probably forget this lesson again quite soon and get stuck again. Maybe next time though I’ll realise what I’m doing a bit quicker. I’ll keep you posted!
The thing that brought all this home to me was a perfect example for me to see. I had been working away, trying to do loads of things at once, writing sales letters, phoning people, arranging a visit to various contacts, booking a conference, writing an email for my autoresponder, trying to write articles, listening to lots of training, getting confused with conflicting advice, rewriting the sales letter because it needed more ‘benefits’, then putting hyperlinks in it…. and then taking them out again, etc. etc. etc. Frankly I was driving myself nuts.
Then I got a call from someone who had seen a simple post on my Facebook page who said she wanted to join me. She hadn’t read my sales letter, she hadn’t subscribed to my emails, and she didn’t really know much about the product involved. But she knew me and she wanted what I had written about. She didn’t even ask me much about the product, or the company, she just knew she wanted to join me on my journey and to make it her journey too. Wow!
Don’t get me wrong, all of the things I was doing are going to be useful. Not everyone is going to respond the same way as this lovely lady. But she taught me a very important lesson. I don’t have to wear myself to a frazzle to make things happen. In fact if I do that I’m likely to get stuck and not get anything finished and out there at all. The best thing I can do for myself is to take things one step at a time and allow the process to unfold.
Phew! What a relief.
Let’s catch up again soon
