It’s been a while since my last post. Been going through some stuff in my head, from my job to things in my personal life, recently which has lead to an almost total shutdown mentally. Have been trying to keep it together. It hasn’t been easy.
Writer’s block has been the result.
I just went through some training videos I have access to as an iPro Partner and they gave me an idea of what to write about. Finally!!
As you may or may not know, I have started to make some small sums of money online in the last few months as a result of what I’ve been learning, but, I’ve been going about it all wrong.
I tend to wing it when I do things. Every post, including this one have been written in that style. I get in front of my keyboard and start typing. I’ll edit a sentence here and there, but that’s it.
One of the first things I was taught, which I still haven’t implemented, was to take the time and write out a long-term plan. This plan is to help me reach my goal, which is to be able to quit my job driving a taxi by the end of this year. By having this plan in place, I’d be able to break it down into smaller increments to achieve what I want and need to do. I’d know what needs to be done in 6 months, 3 months, 1 month and weekly. Some people may break that down even further to daily, but, with some techniques I’ve learned to manage time, the daily stuff would all be done by the end of every week.
An example of not having a plan in place for me is this. I had posted a while back that I was going to create a free product on time management using the techniques I learned, to help others to get more done in less time, whether it was a hobby or business related. Well, I still haven’t done it because I didn’t think about how I was going to do it. I wanted to do a case study, but haven’t decided whether to do it as a video, an e-book or some other venue. If I had thought it through and planned ahead, it would’ve already been out there for everyone to use. For that, I am truly sorry.
That’s just one of the few things that have held me back due to lack of a plan being put in place.
That’s also something I’ve been struggling with in my head. The “Why haven’t you gotten off your lazy butt and done it already!!” voice. I have a bad track record of saying that I’ll do things and then they don’t get completed, or end up taking a lot longer than they should have.
Bottom line, don’t let this happen to you. If you want to reach your goals, whatever they are, get off your butts, write out your long-term plan and break it down to smaller time increments and get it done!!!
Anyway, I needed to get that out there and I hope it helps others to avoid what I haven’t.
