Questions You Might Think About at the End of the Year:
What is your vision for you and your books?
What will be your next activity, how will you publish and promote it?
What steps are you taking immediately to implement it?
What is holding you back from going that next step?
What will happen if you would start today – bringing your vision to life?
Does procrastination make anyone happy?
I stopped ten years ago to watch TV – and it saves me at least 10-15 hours every week.
Would it be a big loss for you to miss those dump sit-coms on TV (which consist to 50% of advertising) and instead write blogs and articles in order to improve your career as an author?
Jonathan Gunson wrote: “Success is based on patience and the willingness to devote decades of your life to building an audience as a writer. Something a lot of new self-publishers don’t (want to) seem to understand. One of the most common questions I get is: “I published a book, but can’t figure out how to get it in front of people.” That’s because it takes time. Time that includes daily attention to promotion … for years.”
“But if you are wanting an income from books, then give it the time it deserves. Every other profession requires an internship, a journeyman level, then eventually a master of expertise. Same with writing/publishing!”
Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin Group, a worldwide brand, …. said in an interview:
“Most of us have barriers that can pull us off track – and in some cases, stop us flat. When your vision is in play, they become mere detours – something that you will figure out, how to quickly redirect and keep on going.”
The mega success that Richard Branson has enjoyed had plenty of hiccups, you can count on it! But Branson had this big picture – now what is YOUR big picture? May we help you to achieve your goals?
