Today I thought we’d discuss those things you know you should be doing but just can’t seem to get into the habit. You know – those things every one says you totally HAVE to do if you want to build a business, learn a skill, accomplish a goal, etc. You’ve read about how important they are over and over and yet, as much as you’d like, you can’t seem to get on board.
For me, business-wise, it’s sending out a monthly newsletter. I know, I know, I know I should be doing this. I did finally set one up after years of reading blogs and seeing it listed on every grow your business/blog article.
When I finally did I create an email list I couldn’t get in the game and actually send anything out on a regular basis. (Sorry peeps!) I want to, I like the idea of connecting with people in a space they check daily, but I don’t want to send anything unless it’s REALLY good. And so…I don’t.
Send out email newsletter has been on my calendar on the first of every month for a while and I quietly slide that note on to the next page thinking, “I’ll come up with something to write by then,” but I don’t. And the fact that I’ve signed up for multiple newsletters to see how everyone goes about it and have yet to find one that I read on a regular basis keeps me stalling.
And so, email newsletters have so far been a giant fail for me.
What’s the thing you know you should be doing, but just can’t get in the habit?
Have any of you gotten yourself out of this situation?
