I was sent on a mission today...
My mother-in-law needed me to drive out of town to pick up some products she ordered from a local merchant, the only issue was...The 'local' merchant was about 50 miles out of town.
No worries, I love to drive so off I went....Usually I try to listen to personal development material on these longer drives to turn my car into a rolling university (that's an old Jim Rohn saying and technique lol). So I started to listen to one of my favorite podcasts 'Darren Daily' by Darren Hardy.
In one of the programs he spoke about showing up, regardless of whether or not you complete the task...The important thing is...Getting into the habit of actually SHOWING UP!
This is what I do before I go to bed every night...
I write 3 tasks I want to complete when i wake up the next day...So for example, last night I wrote down;
- Create my latest Scavenger Hunt promo for CTP
- Email my lists to let them know about it
- Write a blog post about it on CTPtalk.com
Bam! I hit all three and have this HUGE sense of accomplishment because...I took 3 swings today and planted some seeds of success.
However, take a look at what I wrote down on Sunday night....
Urgh....Only 2 of 4 completed! (Sorry @PixiePost I'll do better!!!!)
I may have 'failed' at completing all 4 tasks I had written down but it didn't STOP ME from taking more swings the following day.
And this is the nugget I hope I will share with you today...
The HABIT is what is important!
Sure, we should shoot to compelte everything we have written down, but at the same time life happens. Things go sideways.....Sometimes you don't get it all done. But you STILL SHOW UP!
This is why I write down the 5-500-5000 formula when I first got started on Steem, because engagement was critical. I knew as much as I would have loved to create content everyday, I might not be able to. But I COULD engage everyday.
I knew that my success or failure on the blockchain was a direct result of whether or not, I showed up every day! I didn't have the big crypto pockets to dump into Steem Power, but I had the hustle!
And this is where YOU can step up and take swings everyday.
No matter what happens and no matter what is thrown your way, you MUST show up everyday! Even if it's just a simple 'Loved your post Jongo!' comment here or there...You must stay top of mind!
And that happens because...You engage! You may create. Or you share something on the blockchain or social media...The important thing is that you take swings! Everyday!
Each of us has 1440 minutes in a day. Combine that with the scary truth that each of us is bombarded with thousands of marketing messages each day as well...
We have limited amounts of time for our attention and lots of people pulling for it!
If you aren't taking swings everyday and developing the habit of DOING SOMETHING....You will become obsolete in the industry you want to succeed in....
