Just a little thought for the day... when WAS the last time you did something huge? Something you were afraid of doing? Something you'd been putting off as you didn't think you could do it? When was the last time you thought "You know WHAT? I don't care if it doesn't work... I am going to try this anyway"?
If it's been a while that you scared yourself with a HUGE action for your business then I'd like to challenge you to do something today that is big. Something that you've no doubt been thinking about for a while... pondering... retreating from... making excuses about...
It might just be that you need to pick up the phone to a client, or supplier, or editor, or advertiser, or affiliate and just ask them for something - or even just have a chat. Maybe you've not been out networking for a while... or not booked a speaking gig... or not blogged...
I am not necessarily talking about doing something huge in terms of budget, but BOLD in terms of being out of your comfort zone. I am not going to tell you what it is either as I am sure you already know what it is! :)
Make sure the HUGE action is aligned to your business goals, and make sure it's not on your usual 'to do' list (that's cheating!). Also make sure your huge action is authentic to you too. This is not about doing something out of character for the sake of it.
What this is about is ACTION.
If you want to get better results in your business you're going to have to shake it up a little with some XL sized actions. Now you don't need to do this everyday but you do need to make your actions a little bigger or a little bolder all the time.
It's not enough to claim a small victory and rest on your laurels. You have to keep climbing. Business success is a ladder, and stepping on the first rung (even if you are afraid of heights!) is just the first step :)
