I just wanted to follow up from a post called ‘Time’ which I published on 6th August. The point of the post was about how valuable your time is so therefore you should use it wisely. Everyone knows this right? But it was also a bit of a name and shame post, aimed at myself.
I know that in order to build my online business and make it a success I have to keep at it on a regular basis and take consistent action. However, like most people, I also, am only human! So, at times I get distracted, I prioritize the wrong things, I give into my desire to ‘leave it until tomorrow’. We all do it, and because this blog is presented as a live case study, I show and discuss the good with the bad.
So July was a bit of a slow month for me in that my regular actions of tweeting, Quora-ing (new word!) blogging etc, fell by the wayside. This was very clear to see when I logged into my google analytics, it showed a drop in traffic and visitors to my site. So I named and shamed myself and provided you with evidence of my lazy ways;
Following that I made a commitment to myself to get my priorities back in order and get on with the consistent action I need to to do if I want to grow my business. So that was 18 days ago. I have written and posted a few blogs, got back to sharing them on social media and also been busy answering questions on Quora.
So there you have it, real evidence that consistent action, on a regular basis works! We all KNOW this but sometimes it can be so easy to forget, or so easy to fall into that ‘i’ll just do it tomorrow’ mindset.
I hope this inspires you, if you’re ever feeling a bit lazy, or questioning whether what you’re doing is worth it. Remember YES it is, so just keep at it. Also make sure you have something like this Google Analytics plugin, or any other method of recording what you’re doing, so that you can see for yourself, that your consistently is having an impact. It’s great for motivation to keep going.
Get in touch and tell me what you think, tell me about your ups and downs and how you overcome them!
Bye for now 🙂
