Rome wasn’t built in a day. The light bulb wasn’t invented on the first try. So how did those things come to be? Trial and error, success and failure. You see, as you begin to work on your goals, you will find times when they are not working out as you thought they would, or that they are not taking you where you really want to go. So, now what?
Here is your answer. Now that you have a set of goals to look at, the evaluation and redirection process becomes easier. In my own case, figuring out who the buyer is for my books is one of my goals. After asking some questions, and spending a little time checking out the competition, I have learned that I was looking at the wrong age group. I had been blogging and marketing toward the wrong people. Oops.
Lucky for me, since I have begun a plan, I understand to take things one step at a time and if something isn’t working, then change it. I control my goals and I control my destiny.I really like what Coach Nikki B. had to say this week about not losing focus or getting so narrow in your thinking that you can’t maneuver. Know that success in any endeavor is not necessarily easy, but it doesn’t have to be painful either, just one step at a time.(Keep in mind, us creative folks like to flow through our thoughts like paddling a kayak on a lake, taking in all the scenery along the way, feeling the breeze and the freedom of the space around us.)
The same will work for you as we travel on this journey together. Also, as you complete some goals, don’t forget to set some new ones and use your mental compass to get you going in the right direction again. ,
Well, I’ve got to go for now. Resetting my marketing today. Don’t let your failures keep you down. Make note of them, learn from them. Don’t waste a lot of time on them. There is a whole world of options out there waiting for you. Just remember, “One Thing at a Time.”
