Sometimes I post weird things on my blog in the belief that... for some person, somewhere, it will be the exact right thing at the exact right time.
The post I put up yesterday was about how if you want to be exceptionally well-paid in whatever field you are in, you need to stop associating your getting paid with your doing the thing. The more you get paid for who you are rather than what you do, the more you get paid.
But, personally, I didn’t like the post. Not because of its contents, but because I didn’t think I expressed the idea very well. I think I might need more like 10 blog posts to express the idea in such a way that a new reader, uninitiated to marketing-think, would just get it.
But I posted it anyway, even though I immediately knew I didn’t like it.
Because my opinion doesn’t really factor in. It could be the exact right thing, expressed in the exact right way for some person. And that could mean I just 10X’d someone’s income with that one tip.
I didn’t like the post, but maybe someone else did.
Another reason is to simply train myself to not try to get everything perfect and just ship.
I am naturally inclined to try to make everything as good as humanly possible before exposing it to the world.
But as an entrepreneur, I also know that more often than not, “Ready, Fire, Aim!” is the name of the game. And so, the more practice I get to let go of that bias, the better.
In a similar way to how I posted yesterday’s post without really liking it... I’m posting this as well. I like this post more, but one of the reasons for posting it is that it is probably the exact right thing for at least one person.
Have you been working on something for... forever? If you had to ship it tomorrow, what would you do today?
Something to think about.
