Here's the thing. It's a struggle when I want to make a quick buck and I'm miserable . But when my mindset and time frame became 3-5 years, blogging became a lot easier. People often overestimate what they can accomplish in the short term, but they greatly underestimate what they can accomplish in the long run. By making progress over time, no matter how small, you will eventually succeed. "Progress can't be done without change; those who can't change their minds can't change anything." pupa As I get older, I often find myself opinionated and reluctant to try new things . For example, when my podcast editor introduced me to.
SnapChat and Instagram Stories, I was like… GRRR....I don't understand this tool. Why do I want my messages to disappear after 24 hours? What is your request? Millennials are crazy... Anyway, I didn't realize it at the time, but I must have sounded like a grumpy old man complaining about the good old days of videotapes and mixtapes. Most businesses fail because they fail to adapt to new technologies and trends. Before the fax List world turned to mobile, Microsoft used to have personal computing and desktop software. Likewise, the e-commerce landscape is constantly changing . What worked 5 years ago no longer works today, you have to keep up with technology to thrive. So today, I am actively trying to combat my disorganized old self by keeping an open mind and forcing myself to try new things.
There is always a better way to do something. "If you put everything off until you're sure of it, then you'll never get anything done." lazy I don't like to fail. I'm an analytical person by nature, which makes it hard for me to start anything unless I know I'll be successful. In fact, I would never have started my first business if my wife's pregnancy hadn't forced me to act with imperfect information. But over the years, I have learned to trust my intuition and my abilities .
