Conquering Self-Defeating Attitudes about: Losing Your Zeal
This is the second post in this series about conquering self-defeating attitudes. This one deals with how to hang on to your initial zeal. Whether you’re a writer, an author or internet guru, this could still be you.
“When it comes to my internet goals and objectives…”
#2 – I start something, then forget why It was a good ideal
All too often, I’ve started out with a lot of zeal when working on a new ideal or online activity; then I end up changing horses in the middle of the race. For some reason or another, what seemed like a good ideal at first turns into: “Why am I doing this again?”
TIP: To avoid having this happen to you, try and have a clear cut understanding beforehand, how exactly the project or online activity will benefit you. Write out your plan of action and your objectives and keep them handy. Don’t just document the more obvious things like: “Promote my e-book on Tuesday mornings.” Instead, add specifics.
For instance, in outline form, under Promote my e-book, you may want to get really detailed by including instructions such as: Submit a free press release to Prlog.org. Tweet the title of my e-book on Twitter, or Tumblr. Notating the exact details of your plan of action can help prevent you from losing sight of the big picture.
