Firstly, I want to say thank you for reading my content, and I hope what your reading is enjoyable,
and inspiring :).
Today I’d like to discuss the idea of perfection, and why just making a start, and focusing on progress
is better for you, AND your business.
Everything we do begins with a decision, so if we decide that we want to eat that extra slice of pie
then we’ll eat it. Subsequently, if we decide to start a business, then we must start it. Sadly, human
nature shows us that we will make more decisions to NOT to start something, particularly online markting,
than we will find reasons to actually begin.
This is because we find it easier, more comfortable, or less painful not to begin a project, than it is to
get it up and running.
One of the biggest reasons we find for not doing anything, is because it is not the perfect time.
Sorry to burst your bubble ladies and gents, but sadly there no such thing as perfection. It simply
does not exist. What does exist though is PROGRESS, and we should focus on that completely.
For so long, I felt that writing anything simply wasn’t for me, I always dreamt of writing a book,
but always thought that it wasn’t the perfect time, until today that is.
This morning, while my daughter and me sat together eating breakfast at 7 a.m., I took the
decision that today I would start writing a book, and start an ebook, AND write a blog post,
while also commenting on two other people’s blogs.
Guess what has happened? Yep, you got it, I wrote two chapters so far of my book, I’ve
commented on two other people’s blogs, and I’m writing this blog post. By throwing away
the I can’t write attitude, and by chucking out the it’s not the perfect time to write a book, I’ve
been productve instead of just busy, but I’ll write about that tomorrow, as that is another subject.
So, by concentrating on just making a start, I’ve achieved about 90 per cent of my goals for today
already, and that’s before I stop to eat lunch, then I’ll start my ebook after lunch, so by the end of
today, I’ll have achieved every last one of my to do list, simply by making a simple decision, and
then taking the necessary action to ensure I’d be happy with my day’s work.
I genuinely wish you all the success you deserve 🙂
