What Doesn’t Work

Some strategies work well for some businesses, some not so much. Some people swear by the power of Facebook networking, other only in-person shows, while still other take an all-of-the-above approach. But you know what is guaranteed not to work?

Doing nothing.

When you are facing a problem, and there are several different options for you to handle it, the worst one you can choose is none of the above.

Out of a fear to fail, too many of us will freeze in place and not attempt to remedy the situation. Too many of us will procrastinate to the point of oblivion.

Even if you’re scared, even if you DO end up failing, it’s better to be able to say you tried.

Instead of doing nothing, do something. Pick a possible solution and jump in with both feet. Give it your all. If it doesn’t work out you can chalk it up to a lesson learned and an experience to blog about later.

Do something, because doing nothing doesn’t work.

    Amen! It’s so scary to jump in with the fear of defeat but you have already lost by not trying.

    Absolutely. What a timely comment, too! I’m struggling a bit, being the summer holidays here with my little one at home and a fair coming up in September that I really should be making things for. Well, I am, but at a snail’s pace. It’s so easy to put excuses in place for not bothering to try at all. I was hoping for some motivation and yesterday my team leader popped up on Facebook chat with a question and this morning I read this. Thankyou, thankyou! Your blog is always a pleasure to read, encouraging and uplifting. Keep it up!
