Day 10- #10DBC
This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 10
I think this whole challenge was valuable for many reasons including creating an overall plan, defining my why, and starting a regular habit which I have written about before.
I would have to say that my favourite day of the 10 day blog challenge was Day 7 where I described how I was going to actually get the work done. The Pomodoro method was really a game changer for me. I think I had heard about it before but I didn’t believe that procrastination or productivity was my issue at the time.
It is the ONLY thing that is wrong right now. I have a clear vision of what I want my life to look like and multiple potential business ideas that could get me there but yet I have taken few steps in the right direction. I am stuck in the vicious circle of self-doubt and self-sabotage before I have even validated my idea with real customers. I need to just get busy and do the work. My time is available right now and I need to use it effectively.
Maybe it’s like the concept of the curse of knowledge. I think I immediately assume that if I know something then everyone must know. Even though intellectually I know that can’t be true. Not everyone has 30 years of business experience and a MBA like me and I should be sharing that knowledge with new or struggling business owners. Somehow though I talk myself out of doing the work, every single time.
This challenge was the eye-opener because of how easy it was to write about my perfect day and the lifestyle I wanted to live but the posts like Day 4 were so confused sounding and highlighted the lack of direction on my business. Day 7 gave me a solid tactic to employ to work through that lack of clarity.
I’m glad I participated in this challenge and I thank you Natalie Sisson for providing the opportunity.
