Entrepreneurs live on a roller-coaster. Things are screaming fast up or spiraling out of control down. You are about to take over the world (or you already have, in your mind), or the world is eating you alive and you are guaranteed to not make it another day.
How do you manage the insanity? With everything being an extreme, how do you keep your center?
For me, it’s writing. It’s this blog. If this serves no other purpose, it’s to bring me back to center on a regular basis. Writing helps you get out of your head. It helps you slow down and step back from the immediate crisis of the minute and think about the big picture. Not only do you have to focus on the big picture, but you have to design your thoughts around in a way that is suitable for public consumption. Which means you’re going to apply some reason and rational thinking… two things that are hard to come by when you’re in either the pit of despair or the throne of world domination.
If you are an entrepreneur or success-oriented person and are afraid of start a blog, why?
Are you worried about your ability to put a sentence together in public? … Hmm, How is this different from your posts to Facebook and Twitter in front of hundreds or thousands of friends and followers? Do you really think you can be successful and make an impact on the world, without being able to write something for the public to read?
Do you think you don’t have enough thoughts and ideas? Grow up. Don’t ever claim that you want to be successful if you can’t come up with one new idea of something to write about per week.
You don’t have time? Please, stop whining. We have all the time in the world. You are in charge of how you spend your time. You have time for everything that you make time for.
For myself and others that write blogs, I can tell you that we have all be surprised by the value we’ve received from starting. Just start already. You won’t be sorry.
