When trying to build an online business, it is easy to get sidetracked and derailed. That is why you have to be intentional, your success depends on it. I know, you are thinking, but I am a pretty strong willed and structured person Frank, I will be alright.
Guess what? You can be the absolute most strong willed person alive, and you can think that you will stay on task, and maybe for a while you will. But, sooner or later, you will find yourself slipping. It may start of small, just a few minutes here and a minute or two there. The next thing you know, you are totally off track and that post never got written, or that keyword research is still waiting on you.
The point is, the more structured and deliberate you are, the better your odds of success are. I have had people here tell how they even time themselves, not a bad habit to get into, in order to make sure that they accomplish what they set out to do. It is totally a good thing to be driven, but pace yourself. It is great to be motivated, but you can burn yourself out quickly. You must feel it out, adjust your pace if you are finding that you are in over your head. Likewise, if you feel that the tasks you set for yourself are too easy, then tighten that belt a bit.
It is not a race here, I know that everyone wants to get rich like yesterday, but it will take you longer and you even run the risk of giving up if you do not pace yourself correctly. You currently have at your disposal, the very best training available, the most supportive community and you have so much more going for you right now. So, learn now how to pace yourself and don't give up and never quit.
You can easily get discouraged, or sidetracked, or just feel yourself run out of steam. This is your life, it is your investment and we are here to try to make sure that you make the very best use of it.
