The Most Important Part is the DO!
Often times we find ourselves loving the "planning" phase of something, but when it comes to the actual "doing"... not so much.
We plan a diet, a workout, a productive week of building our website.
Then instead of DOING we just fall back to analyzing or more planning.
The number one way to get to where you want to go is to DO. Yes, planning and research is mega important, but the MOST IMPORTANT PART is the DO!
With regards to your website, sure, plan, research, but then WRITE, CREATE, PUBLISH! And immediately after this step, especially early on, don't get lost in analytics, simply get back on that train!
Plan, research, WRITE, CREATE, PUBLISH!
Same with YouTube.
Same with basically EVERYthing.
If you're in a workout program, sure, you'll plan out your workouts, you'll schedule when you're going to go, but then YOU HAVE TO DO, right?
And you don't jump on the scale between every set checking your "analytics" right? That can actually discourage you.
Plan and then DO and you'll see results over time. You'll see definition, or in the case of your business, you'll see sales / conversions.
And if every morning you start your day checking for clicks, STOP.
Especially early on.
Don't analyze more, DO more.
Research goes hand in hand with writing. But paralysing your momentum with constant analysis does not.
And just like how you'll see results from a workout over time without even checking the scale, same applies to your business. Take a look at your work with friesh eyes. If you find yourself reading a post you wrote and it's making you fall asleep, then re-think your writing approach.
Add some energy. Follow what you see the leaders doing.
But the most important part IS THE DO.
So make today a day with lots of DOING!
Same for tomorrow.
Even more the next day.
