I got an email from Missy who owns G34media, a small network of 4 blogs and she asks:
I found your blog through a post on â€œHow to Make Money Onlineâ€ over at ABW.
This post caught my attention, as im suppose to be working right now, and instead im at your blog procrastinating.
I would say i have a â€”fear of successâ€” not failure. It is the classic â€œmiddle class syndromeâ€.
My modus operandi is that i tend to take on too much, right now im managing 4 blogs. Plus i get paid to write on another.
Sometimes i want to chuck some of the blogs, and just concentrate on one, but then i feel like im giving away future income.
What thoughts have you on my blog network?Should i concentrate on one or two blogs and sell the others, or just keep them, and write when i can.
Would love feedback from you.
I’m not sure if Missy expected that it’d become a full-fledged post, but I think many internet marketers are in a similar situation.
Here’s my take:
Procrastination is something that happens if we don’t have a clear goal/outcome in mind, and may not have a game plan in hand.
If you don’t have visibility of what you are going to achieve (like getting into your car and not having a destination in mind), it’ll be natural that you might wander around aimlessly (eg. spend endless hours in forums, reading blogs, filing a twitter every 5 mins) – yes, you’re right, you are a digital slacker.
Just think back for a moment about why you got into internet marketing?
To spend more time with the family? To generate multiple time what you’re earning now? To achieve financial freedom?
In a universe of nearly unlimited Internet Marketing products, one thing and one thing alone will determine your online success.
Although you might already be bombarded each day with a barrage of emails and irresistible offers, here’s a tip to help you achieve your 2006 goals over the next 70+ hours.
Focus, Focus, Focus
I call it a tip (some might call it a trick). The mind can only fully concentrate on one task at a time. Have you ever been in a race (whether on land or in a swimming pool or some other situation) and you found yourself watching the competition? (more…)
