Final week, I affirmed that “onerous work is luck.”
Nonetheless, what in the event you work onerous and aren’t seeing any progress or outcomes? What if onerous work simply results in you feeling disillusioned and prepared to surrender?
Earlier than you really do surrender, it’s useful to check out the actions that devour your time and a spotlight.
Why do some individuals who work onerous succeed, and a few don’t?
I believe those that “work onerous and succeed” are open to quite a lot of pathways that may assist them attain their objectives. They’re versatile and don’t have a hard and fast mindset concerning the work they need to be doing or a inflexible definition of success.
In different phrases, those that “work onerous however don’t succeed” would possibly work onerous on the fallacious issues and ignore different variations of success inside attain.
It’s not probably the most thrilling fact, however we have now to crawl earlier than we are able to stroll.
So, let’s decelerate a bit and embrace “crawling” as a dedication to our craft that helps us persistently create one thing particular for our audiences.
It jogs my memory of certainly one of my favourite quotes from Sonia:
“Probably the most good technique utilized to crap will merely get the phrase out sooner about how crappy your content material is.” – Sonia Simone

And on Wednesday, we acquired slightly nearer to “strolling” with my editorial pointers that element the very best methods to increase your viewers with visitor posts for different web sites.
In your path to “X,Y,Z,” it simply is smart to begin with “A,B,C” — and don’t ignore the entire letters in between which are essential components of your hard-work journey. 🙂
