Advertise what you’ve really got

2

We’ve just stayed in an AirBnB townhouse on holiday and there were a couple of features–specifically 2 very nice red deckchairs in the cute garden filled with cactus plants–that made me want to stay there. But when we arrived, the lovely deckchairs were no where to be seen…

What are you waiting for?

I ask this question a lot.

I ask myself, I ask my clients, and I ask (in my head!) this on behalf of people I see who are stuck, or afraid, or unsure. The reason I ask this question a lot is that sometimes there isn’t actually a ‘good’ reason to wait. There may well be an excuse (or lots of excuses) but very often, when it really comes down to it, there isn’t actually a real reason.

Buying Time

2

Buying Time is a concept that works really well if you’re half Thinging and half doing what you’re good at right now. Buying Time also works really well if you’re not doing your Thing yet (even if you don’t know what it is) and instead you’re stuck getting paid for something you’re just good at. Buying Time is also something I do so I can take time off from my Thing and do something else (holiday, anyone?).
