Recently I had a choice to make on another online program. Take the course, or don't take the course. The course would have been beneficial in that I would not learn anything business-wise any where else, given the fact that I am not going back to school. Please, not at this stage in the game, and not for business.
The deciding factor was finances. This course was pricey. Okay, I would learn things I didn't know, but the question hung on me: Would the cost translate into actionable usage? Would it benefit me in ways I would see in concrete form. Or, would it benefit me in time, with more help, needing more learning? I just couldn't justify the price at this point. With plenty of other ways of getting information at my fingertips right now, I passed on the course. Next time around I'll rethink it.
Someone would be making money, not necessarily me. For now I'll just Google whatever I need to know.
But the course presenter sent out a free and informative video workshop with good thoughts on moving ahead and making things happen. A big take away for me was the idea that we need to make a decision first, and that decision, what ever it might be, is a commitment. Once we make a commitment, we take action.
"Once we take action, the Universe bends to support you," the presenter emphasized. That statement struck me, reminding me of the book I read a while ago The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace Wattles, from 1908, I think.
I get that. Making decisions is like saying there's no B.S. now, you've got to get things done. Take charge. Act. Be a doer. Push it. Do it.
Having made the decision to move the blog, I've taken action and responsibility. When it's ready I will send you over there to take a look, but not until I figure it out with "Mr. Google."
Making the commitment was the easy part. Kicking out Mr. Resistance is the hard part.
