You Need a Reboot, Here Is Why

There are moments in the day when you feel you are not getting ahead. Are stuck and have no idea why. You need a reboot. Return to factory settings. This is why

You Need to Purge

This is simple. You are so full of stuff and ideas you have learned or collected over the years on how to do things in your business or life in general. You really need to unlearn a few things.

This is because while some of the advice stored away has and may serve you well, some of this advice could be hindering you. Shake off some of the ideas that you have been hanging on to and start again.

There is more than one way

There is more than one way to do stuff. Whether you have been doing business for many years or are just starting, it does help to keep in mind that there is more than one way to do things.

At the beginning of the process you read as much as you can, listen to as many people as you can and watch as many how to videos as you can. Then you fell into trying to copy that process exactly. You do not have to do things using someone else’s blueprint.

It’s great to learn from those who’ve already done it but, do you realize that if you ask 10 people to explain their process, you’ll get 10 different answers. Because there’s more than one way to do things you have the right to find the way that works best for you.

That process can be very very different.

Take Some Pressure off Yourself

Sometimes the pressure we put on ourselves chokes out our creativity and holds it in such a hard grip we fail to move. Do remember like doing things in 10 different ways, happiness is also a one size does not fit all kind of thing.
What makes you happy isn’t going to make another person happy. The trick is to find the things that make you happy and build your career or business around that.

Also you do not have to do something in the best best way. Striving for perfection is the enemy of good and it can steal your joy. Do your best-that will be good enough.
