Put all your eggs in ONE basket!
One of the richest man of all time said, “Put all of your eggs in 1 basket, then watch that basket.”
I think many people who start an online business should remember that wisdom.
Way too many beginners start like this,
“I’ll create 3 websites and try to make all of them successful at the same time.”
None of the websites is doing well and a person quits because “nothing seems to work”.
In short, he doesn’t only make mistakes on one of his websites but he makes all the same mistakes on all 3 websites.
Is there a better strategy?
Build only 1 website (at the beginning) and make it successful. You will make the mistakes only once instead of thrice.?
Later on, when your website is doing well and generating you income, you can create a new website if you want.
But you might not even want.
1 or 2 websites?
Let’s say that one website is making you $2,000/month.
Is it easier to take another website from 0 to $2,000/month or this current site from $2,000/month to $4,000/month?
The latter option is a million times easier in most cases.
If you take a look at the most successful people on the planet, they all focused on one thing.
- Michael Jordan became successful by playing basketball, you’ll never see him playing a piano.
- Bill Gates became successful with computers, you don’t see pictures of him lifting heavy weights.
- Tiger Woods became successful playing golf, you don’t see him singing..
If you want to become very good at something or succeed in one industry, you must focus.
This is especially important at the beginning when you are learning something new.
You don’t want to try to learn 10 things at the same time. Focusing on one thing is much better.
I remember what helped me to get first breakthroughs online. It was this strategy:
“Publish every single day at least one post on my website. All the other tasks are secondary.”
And that same strategy has worked also for many other people.
It’s simple and focused.
Now I am using a bit different strategy but that example illustrates you the power of focus.
All the best!

PS. Are you focusing on too many things?
Should you narrow down your focus on one thing only to make sure you’ll succeed?

PPS. Of course, there is also "another side of the coin". But that's a topic for another article :)
