Monday Motivation for Small Business Owners | NJ Brand Strategist
Monday's are tough! We're still in weekend mode but our list is long with things to do. Let's help each other make the transition a little bit easier. On Mondays, I will share a tip or trick to help ease you into the week. Hope it inspires you to take action and jumpstart into your day.
So...how many of you have purchased or signed up for an online course? You were super excited about the topic and ready to dive in. You start off strong...reading the content, watching the videos, doing the homework. Then you got distracted because another course or webinar or download comes available on another hot topic. You consider buying that too and maybe you even do. Now you have 2 courses that you have to finish. This pattern can repeat endlessly, especially if you are active online. It can almost be an addiction leaving you with a shelf full of virtual courses that never get finished.
I know this FOMO (fear of missing out) feeling very well because a few years back, I would buy - buy - buy all sorts of courses. But the reality was I never finished them. I never applied the information. I was hungry to learn but I could never completed the work.
I made the decision to NOT buy anything until I finished what I was currently invested in. It's a simple step but I am hoping as today's #mondaymotivation, it will inspire you to stop and pause. Think about what you are spending your money on or listening to online. Focus on what you already have bought and finish it first. Apply the knowledge. Practice what is being taught. Study the impact it has on your business. Once you have mastered it, then move to the next thing on your list.
A little focus can go a long way. Have a great week!
