Getting Sucked into the Notifications
Oh my goodness, it is so easy to get sucked into reading and responding to all the notifications. So much great information is being shared that it is a real part of the learning process. That being said, however, it's important to know when to pull the plug and get back to work on why I'm here in the first place.
Unfortunately, I can be a real procrastinator. Not a good thing when you're trying to get a business going with lofty goals looming on the horizon. I don't know, maybe I'm ADD when it comes to buckling down to do this work. Or maybe it's fear. Or maybe I'm overwhelmed.
I think I'm going to opt for the fear with a good dose of overwhelm mixed into the pot.
My biggest fear right now is writing the About Page and the Getting Started Page. I want to get it right. No, perfect. I keep telling myself that there is no criteria for perfect, no benchmark by which my articles will be judged. If I write from the heart, I should be okay.
I have to start someplace and come to the understanding that this, too, is part of the learning process. I bet if I were to ask Carson or Kyle how their first site looked and how long it took them to get the polished look that experience creates, they'd tell me it didn't happen overnight. That it took months, maybe even years.
I've been down this path so many times. Just a few steps left to launch and, boom, I throw my hands up and walk away. Too many excuses as to why something won't work. I used to be so good at solving problems. What happened? When did that skill go dormant?
It's time to take a different path. It's time to go write something. It's time to launch my website. It's time to overcome fear that has no real basis and overwhelm that can be controlled by taking one step at a time.
Fair warning to the wonderful WA community..... I'm sure I'll have lots of questions as I go through this process and I'd like to thank you in advance for your help.
