In January 2019 I vowed to commit to taking action in my business and my personal life. At first, I started the first few months great. Yet like most of us, I started to lose some of my enthusiasm as difficult decisions and disappointments occurred. I struggled with making decisions for fear of making the wrong one. Yet I realized that taking action is the only way I will make progress so I did. Yes, we all worry about making the wrong decisions, losing face, losing money or other important but not relevant things that keep us up late at night. But in order to have a different life, we must do things differently. I know how it turns out when I don’t take action, so I decided to find out what happens when I do.
I was in Florida for the first quarter of the year visiting family so it was an ideal situation for stepping outside of my comfort zone. I networked with new people as well as those I had not seen in a long time. I spent time communicating to others how I solved problems by providing online business support for business owners as well as forming new relationships.
In the past, I had not done much networking so taking this step was huge for me. You might be asking yourself, what does she mean by “take action”? By this, I mean making immediate decisions quickly not haphazardly, with confidence. In the past, I was slow to make decisions or worse over-analyzed the ones I did make. So 2019 was a year of decision making and choosing to take action.
It’s December and because of this commitment to taking action, I have worked with more clients, earned more income and collaborated with other business owners on projects that generated income for all. Was this easy? No. Did I make mistakes? Yes! I never said I would take perfectly intentional action. Stepping outside of the zone of the ordinary to move toward extraordinary takes action and commitment. Perfection is not necessary when there is consistent action.
