It’s taken me a long time to figure out that trying to do everything, all of the marketing, all of the writing tasks, isn’t really a recipe for success, it’s a recipe for burnout.
And it wasn’t until I took a year-long coaching program from Pat Flynn, that I realized that doing less but better was a much more successful recipe for reaching the goals that you want to reach.
I mean, if you have to try to go all out on 10 different things, you’re naturally going to spread yourself thin.
Maybe one or two of those things will hit.
But because you kind of do this half-baked version of all of them, you are going to be less likely to have the success than if you had focused on just one or two things.
So, how do you embody less but better?
It’s really just writing down everything you’re doing, and evaluating it.
And you might find it helps to have someone else help you analyze it.
To look at all the things that you’re doing and apply that 80/20 rule.
To ask the question: what is the one thing that would take 20% of my time that would get me 80% of the results?
Because if you keep focusing on that, by doing fewer things but doing them more effectively, you’ll enjoy more success for you, your publishing, and the rest of your life.
