Why are some of us able to jump right in and start executing when we have an idea, and some of us are paralyzed until we sort out and understand every nuance (and potential nuance) of a project? If you are reading this, you are probably in the second category like me. But what is it about those people who don't have to research every possibility, examine every possible flaw in an idea or project, follow every possible chain reaction to its conclusion? I love and hate them at the same time! LOL!
I've spent thousands of dollars on therapy and one of the 2 or 3 ideas that really sticks with me is the importance of just doing it - whatever it is.
I believe that all types are important. I'm not diminishing the importance we "thinkers" play in the scheme of things, I just know that I have to balance my natural inclinations with actually getting something done. I've thought of writing a blog for a couple of years. I've also wanted to learn internet marketing and web site development. But how many possibilities are there for a blog subject, a blog name? A product to market? It's an infinite amount and I could infinitely think about it without doing one blasted thing.
But, this fall I decided I had to shake off the cobwebs and TRY some possibilities, not just think about them. I thought, heck, I'll just pick a topic I really know something about and start writing about it. So two years after first thinking about a blog, I picked "procrastination" and here I am!
I figured I can't be the only one that struggles and I have learned a few helpful ideas along the way. The thing I enjoy most in life is sharing solutions and information so it is turning out to be a good fit. Nothing is more fun to me than hearing someone ponder how to do or find out something I know about or know how to find out about and getting the information for them. Aaahhh, bliss.
So let's help each other JUST DO IT. Thinking is good, doing is better. :)
