Kelly, I bought the fire sale and it was awesome. I always wonder though if people think that it is a way to capitalize on someone's misfortune. But, the flip side is that you are helping someone and you give the buyers a chance to help someone as well. I hope most people think the latter.
I appreciate your suggestion and I think I'll do just that since I'm feeling a lil overwhelmed. I'm used to jumping right into things but now, I'm taking my time to lay the foundation. I'll b in the accountability forum. Thanks again.
Let's here it for a fresh commitment to Following Through!
You could post your weekly projects on the forum and come back to report your progress - the extra accountability can be just what we need.
Hi Kelly, thanks for sharing your story. I have to confess that I'm guilty. Sadly, my issue is not, not doing--it's not sticking with it. I'm finally learning so much more about my info-holic syndrome My creative mind gets bored when I don't see instant results. I also need to find "that passion" because I love many things. I have however made a commitment to myself that this yr w/b different and I w/have to follow thru... no options, my ultimate goal must b fulfilled which is to retire fr my JOB w/in 5 yrs. I know its doable. Now I w/ DO IT! Thanks again.
Kelly, your comments are so right on, and I am guilty of being the shiny object follower too. Thanks for a dose of common sense, which according to Dr. Phil "common sense is not so common any more"--he is pretty quotable, but I like that one a lot.
Bright Shiny Object Syndrome is something that I have to work on. I know that I have this problem - as I know that many do. This is the year that I don't buy anything unless it's something that I'm going to use right then - and keep at it!
I love this and I'm so glad you brought Tracy to the forefront with this! and she's right - no more excuses!
Great things to add Tracy!
Three things I didn't mention during the interview.
1. 5 people that helped me with the fire sale are NAMS attendees
2. My mom asked me this question. "If it was that easy, why didn't you do it sooner?"
3. From conception to finished "product" less than 48 hours.
So, I kinda don't have any more excuses to get things done. How about you?
