K.I.S.S. COMPLICATED AND OVERWHELM GOODBYE
Let's be honest here…Business is HARD. If you are receiving information from people telling you that entrepreneurship is "easy," then I highly recommend you reconsider who you are following and hanging out with because they just might liars, LOL. Now that's not to say that entrepreneurship is impossible, because it's not. If you can understand the process, are committed, and willing to do the work then you too can be an entrepreneur.
But remember I said it is hard. It is hard because you are responsible for doing everything. Yes, you are the CEO but you are also the Copywriter, Marketing Director, Strategist, Receptionist, Executive Assistant, Mail Room Supervisor, Financial Analyst, and Custodian! Seriously, these are the hats you will have to be able to wear if you decide to leap. So then how the hell are you supposed to accomplish anything and even better… do it well? You need to K.I.S.S. it. You need to KEEP IT SIMPLE SWEETIE!
Bishop T.D. Jakes once taught on the "Beauty of Simplicity." It is literally about removing the fluff and getting crystal clear on what is important and then pouring your energy into it. Simplicity transforms the complicated to clarity. And when you are clear, you make moves because you know exactly what, when, and how to do something. When you are clear, the struggle doesn't hinder your progress because you instinctively seek the solution. When you are clear, you don't get sucked into distractions because you are intentional about the use of your time. In other words, when you have the clarity you gain FOCUS.
And here are some steps to help you FOCUS:
1. You need to sit down and have a come to Jesus with yourself and figure what tasks move you forward.
Ask yourself this…" does dedicating time to this task lead to more money and/or opportunity?" In other words, is it a "seed" of potential? Stop wasting your time with endless nonsense that is incapable of producing fruit.
2. You need to understand your areas of resistance and then decide if you are going to push past the resistance or give into the stagnation.
Resistance is part of the process, it comes to give you the option to become your best self…and/or settle and give into self-sabotage (ouch).
3. You need to stop allowing perfectionism to keep you procrastinating.
PERFECT DOES NOT EXIST! Therefore continuing to wait for the "perfect" time, "perfect" design, "perfect" post is a waste of your time. Business is the process of refining, refining, and then refining some more. So go ahead and do whatever needs to be done and fix it as you learn and grow.
Building a business is hard, but it becomes even harder when we are spreading ourselves thin trying to do all the things with no direction, structure, or intention. It is not complicated…it is SIMPLE, but it will require you to shift your perspective and start doing things differently.
