Delay, delay, delay. Just do it
Well the new website has been up for a few weeks now, yet the blog has remained dormant. I keep telling myself that I need to get writing, when I don’t write I get stuck, but it just hasn’t been happening. I have written down lots of ideas for blog posts, I just haven’t acted on any of them.
Then I suddenly recalled the solution to this problem of “writers block”. I am not sure where I read or heard this little tidbit of wisdom, so I cannot properly reference it, but it goes something like this:
The best way to get over writer’s block….wait for it…is to start writing!
So, here is post number one for the new business site. I am officially started.
“Start writing” is also a solution for your business
The advice works! The original plan was to hit post after that last line, but then the light bulb went on and I realized how important this is to do in your business.
Too often we get “business block”. We fret over wording something just the right way, or whether our price is right, or if our “thing” is complete enough to offer. We get so stuck in our entrepreneur heads that we think, and think, and think, but never do. The writer’s block advice applies perfectly:
The best way to get over business block, is to start something in your business.
Maybe not as eloquent as the writer’s block bit, but it still works. If you are stuck somewhere in your business what would happen if you just moved forward and did it?
Stuck on a price? Pick a number and go live, then see what happens.
Not sure if a program is ready for delivery? Sign people up, deliver it, and adapt on the go.
Have nothing to offer in your business? Offer something, anything. Just have something people can buy.
Beta test your ideas and see what happens
I have had a great deal of success in my business by repeatedly beta testing ideas. In fact most of the offers on my website started out as a “let’s see what happens” beta test. The beauty of the internet, or paper, or radio, whatever medium you choose is that they can be changed. If the offer didn’t work either adjust it, delete it, rip it up, or take it off the air.
None of our decisions in business have to be final, we can always make adjustments as needed, we just have to convince ourselves that this is true and stop worrying ourselves into stuckness.
What part of your business have you been stuck on that you could put into action right away? What is stopping you from just doing it?
