And how much time do you spend actually DOING something that adds value to an online money making activity?
If you're like I used to be (still am sometimes) then you'll find that you can spend HOURS reading and researching stuff about how to make money online and you just become so overwhelmed with information and ideas that you just don't actually DO ANYTHING. I think many can relate to this??
This is often referred to as analysis paralysis because you just look at stuff for hours instead of putting time into value generating activities. This is especially common with newbies starting out as they just don't know where to begin. This can be harmful for your business in my opinion.
My advice on how to avoid the analysis paralysis is as follows:
1) Have a written down list of things to do that will add direct value to your business and don't do anything until you have completed them and ticked them off. Your list could be as follows:
-Post these adds to my facebook group
-Type this email and send out to my list
- Reply to these comments on facebook etc. etc.
Even if it is just 3 small things like that, it gets things DONE! This helps you to make progress before you get lost in stuff on the Internet and it helps to keep you accountable.
2) Set aside an amount of time each day for completing your list. eg Spend 1 hour fro 7pm. This will help you get your stuff done in a shorter amount of time and help you to not WASTE time. It will also take the stress out of always thinking about what you need to do for your business and when you're gonna get it all done. Bite size chunks friends.
3) When you do go back and get lost in information on the internet, try and focus on only 1 or 2 sources that you trust and you know that will give you value. This will help you to be more consistent and actually LEARN. Then just implement on a consistent basis.
When I started sticking to this approach was when I really started to see a noticeable change in my results online and since then I have made thousands of dollars online..
Anyways, I hope this is helpful to anyone!!
