Can you REALLY follow through?

14 replies
It is so common to see online entrepreneur start a project and fail to follow through. I have a question as much for experienced and newbies.

What are you doing to make sure you follow through the project you start? What worked for you and what haven't worked?

I have my own ideas, but I want to make this post more about the community than just myself and hopefully make people think more about it .

Let me know your though

    Personally I break the project down into small chunks and set deadlines for every chunk to be completed by and publically state when the project will be launched...

    It forces me to get moving....

        I've completed every project I've set out to complete....

        So I guess it's an 100% record

The problem when you look at a whole project at once it seems so overwhelming and you keep finding reasons not to start it. When you look at a small portion you think that's not that bad, I'll just get it done.

          Before you know it, you've completed a project and it didn't even feel like work!

          By results I mean how successful your project became AFTER it were done? Have you got a decent amount of opt-in or sales?

          No matter how much project you "get done", how have you follow through getting results from them afterward?

            After the project gets done I force myself to write a list of task that NEED to get done the next day....and don't stop until I do them....that keeps me motivated and going.

            In terms of time invested vs reward I am perfectly happy with my results so far

      Very good system, I use it too. People often need a push to get moving.

      This is definitely a good idea right here.

      I read somewhere that it's very good to make your goals public because then people will hold you to them and you feel like if you don't do it you will let everyone down.

      Listen to this man.

        I think you're looking at a project a little narrowly, the "follow through" to which you're referring is part of the project.

        For a lot of people you have to pick a niche that interests you. Additionally, you have to do your "due diligence" in researching keywords that get the desired results.

        Hope this helps,

    Follow through is important, and it is perhaps something that I need to work more on. I am glad that you put words to that.

    Here's what I do...

    1. 3 major tasks a day.

    2. Rise at 4 a.m.

    3. Goal is to complete 4 tasks by 8 a.m.

    With each task...

    1. What do I need to do?

    2. When will I do it?

    3. How long will it take?

    Then I do it.
