Kicking The Can Doesn't Work, Disposing of It Will!

Last Update: June 09, 2021

Hello my friends, hope you had a nice weekend. Are you as guilty as me of kicking the can down the road? Meaning that we keep pushing a situation on and on, knowing that it won't work. I call it procrastination, we tend to keep doing the same thing over and over, hoping that eventually it will work.


The typical phrase is "Just Wait and See" because we feel for sure it will work. On my previous post I mentioned not to play the waiting game, because you could be waiting forever. When you kick the can for so long, you will run out of road before it's too late. Again your time is valuable and you must use it wisely.


One day the can will talk back to you letting you know that the end of the road is near and we have not figured out what to do.

Stop Kicking The Can and Dispose of It!!

We need to stop using the same excuses to prove a point, when in reality our strategy never worked, but it's better to "keep kicking it" rather than confronting the situation. Either it works or it doesn't work, that's the bottom line. What is your attitude towards getting stuff done?


I said this before, but when it comes to building an online business, we need to trash all that does not help our cause. We need to get rid of all the cans that will make us waste our time. Let us start to complete our tasks, find something to do each and every day.

It will be a shame if after all the hard work, we get to the end of the road and we have nothing to be proud of. Just take one day at a time, but let's make it count!

Eugene Hunny, I'm back n I looked you up to tell you how much I missed you. I Hope all is well with you and life surrounds you with beautiful thoughts. You have your garden put out? I didn't plant a dang thing this year. I'm watching that lil "Tea Cup" of mine grow. She has to be the best comedy show I have attended. 18 months and it is obvious that she has my genes dances, pulls a joke, smiles and talks more than me. We sure have a time.
Just checking in. Write me something outrageous lol.
Talk to you later

Your story reminds me of something Albert Einstein once said. He said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing (like kicking the can) over and over again, expecting the results to be different.

I have not been can-kicking, but have been involved in a 6-month remodel project, converting my garage into an office. It's done! Now I can work out here!

To see the finished product, look at my blog called "Napoleon Hill Was Right: Think It, Believe It, Watch It Happen." Take a look, as I am very proud of what my ideas have created.

Good job Fran, I'm glad you have a new place to work. I also read the Napoleon Hill book at least three times. We must believe in ourselves but we should not waste too much time on unproductive tasks. Say hello to Lucinda.

I am one of those that kick the can and procrastinate, Eugene.

Your post is like a kick on the butt for me. Get off my somewhat lazy ass and do. I try as I learn new things to implement what I learn, but progress is very slow.

The thought that I could be waiting for nothing or forever is also a scary one. Especially in this environment that requires a little bit of waiting to see results at times.

Should I be impatient I might end up making unnecessary changes and never see results. Or even not see what needs improvement, because I throw my can too soon in the bin.

How do you then know when it is time to make changes?
How long should you wait or not wait for that matter?

Affiliate marketing is a tough can.

Thank you, for a very needed push.

Ntlhane, the waiting game in Affiliate Marketing is a cruel one, we never know when is the appropriate time to get rid of something or continue kicking the same can. Strategies don't always work fast, we are supposed to give it some time, but the question is how long?

I get my answers from Google Analytics. I know for sure that when I started to put videos in my content, my traffic went up right away. People just love videos, no argument in that. We just need to try here and there, but the content will always be the foundation and it must be something that people need to solve their problems.
