I’m starting to line up all of my ducks in a row and with that comes all sorts of interesting people and invitations.
And in case you didn’t know…..To get one's ducks in a row essentially means to ensure that all of the small details or elements are accounted for and in their proper positions before embarking on a new project.So it’s a perfect description really, of what I’m hoping to establish long term.
- I’ve established my profile on LinkedIn – which unbeknownst to me is also obviously a hunting ground for would-be recruiters and salespeople. (It still needs some tweaking, but it’s up there at least)
- I’m reaching and stretching (the old fear muscles) and submitting a few 'words' here and there. In doing this I'm exploring my many different writing options and choices.
- I’ve researched some web hosting platforms and providers with the aim of establishing my own website and encountered more salespeople.
- I signed up for my free trial issue of an SA based business magazine via an Adelaide based networking website. Buyer beware – because I received the phone call from the sales hat wearing person, not because my name is instantly recognisable (I can only wish that my name made people jump that fast) no it’s because of the clout that my employers’ name carries.
- I’m writing madly, every day. At work (for work), at home (for me). Ideas are tumbling over themselves in my mind. The drive home means I have to resist the urge to write notes as my mind races with thoughts and concepts and plans. I think I need one of those voice recording thingy-ma-bobbies. (now there’s a highly descriptive technical term)
- I’m commenting on a range of blogs / websites (aside from my favourites) and starting to build relationships with like minded people.
When you practice something long enough, you become it.
The more you do something, the better you get.
The better you get, the more you become.
So what are you focused on ‘becoming’? What are you doing to help the process?
