Your Journey Moving Forward

Well, 2019 was a torturous year for me.  Now it is 2020, and I am taking new actions, designed to be more condusive to the journey I want to be on.

It takes time to move things in a new direction. The steps and consistency in those steps can mean pain. But at least you will be choosing your pain, and making moves based on your own mind.

If you don’t choose your pain, someone will choose it for you. And most likely it will be to build their agenda.

So, be free and think for yourself. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, because mistakes are part of moving forward.

Be accountable, but not judgemental of yourself.

If you realize something you tried didn’t work, then learn from it and move on. Don’t dwell on anything negative.

Don’t let other people’s judgement and opinions, about what you are doing, get  into your head. Brush them off.

Only your opinion really matters about how you are living your life, and building your future. You can modify and adapt your plan as you go along.

Make plans and take actions that match your values, your priorities and how you want to live.

If you don’t establish what means something to you, and why you are doing what you are doing, someone will do it for you. And then you will be wasting time serving someone else’s agenda.

Overcoming Perfectionism for Business

image

Take a step. Do something that you want to do, even if you are not exactly sure where it will lead you. 

You have heard the phrase  “Ready, Fire, Aim,” but there an adaptation of that quote by Thomas Peters and Bob Waterman. 

“Ready, Aim, Fire. “

I love this quote. You do not always know exactly what to do or how to do it. You cannot predict what how other people will respond to your ideas. But if you have an idea, you should go for it.

It might be an idea for your blog, or a business idea you have. If you try something, then you will see how people react to it. You can always tweak it later. 

You can use the information you gather from the feedback that you get. Then you can adapt based on that feedback. 

If you wait until you think it is perfect, before trying something then you may never go for it.

The only way to know what things will work is to try something and then try something else. 

Perfectionism is the desire to do things perfectly and the fear of not being perfect. But no one is perfect and the world is unpredictable. 

Your journey to discover your possibilities will have failures and successes. You might be surprised how well an idea you have will work. If something does not work quite the way you expected then ask people for their opinions. 

If you are not sure what your target audience is then you will discover this along the way. If you do have an idea who your target audience is, then you can try to see things from their point of view.

Put yourself in their shoes and always think of the people who will be experiencing you. Think of what those people need and what their values are. 

The emotions of people are important when you think of business or blog ideas.

Entrepreneurs are pioneers of their own unique ideas. Your frontier is in front of you and all around you. 

You can give people something that will inspire and challenge them.

You discover what you can do as you go along. You have to take one step at a time. Do not be afraid to try something that you think might be a good idea. 

Ready, Fire, Aim. It can work. You can evaluate the feedback and connect with people in an honest way. 

People respond to others who seem human like they are. You do not have to pretend to be perfect. It just makes you look pretentious and above them. People like to do business with people that are real like they are.
