You Want to Do A Lot (But STOP!)

Are you doing too much?

Are you trying to do too much in your business?

There's no shortage of social media websites you can be on. There's Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, YouTube, Snapchat...just to name a handful.

But do you need to be on all of them?

The answer is no.

What do you need to do?

What do you want to do to serve, as Seth Godin says, your tribe?

Maybe you've been wanting to write a book.

And start a podcast.

And finally, start building up your YouTube channel.

And start doing Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn Live.

And start writing blog posts on a regular basis.

But wait, there's more!

You want to start writing on Medium.

And participating on Quora.

And improving your SEO.

And develop a course.

And creating a membership site.

Time out!

STOP!

You're doing too much.

The more stuff you do, the more likely you're not going to do anything well.

Everything I just mentioned is good.

But, again, are you doing too much?

Wouldn't it be better, if you really wanted to write your book, that you wrote the book most of your time? Doing the research, outline, rough draft? You really focused on writing that book?

I'm not saying that as you're writing the book, you can't be on social media.

Or you can't do your podcast.

Or you can't have a life.

What I'm saying is the majority of your time should be spent doing that one thing: writing your book.

So many people are doing too much.

What is that thing that you need or want to do?

Figure out what that is and then spend most of your time doing that one thing.

When you do, you'll gain more traction, you'll be more productive.
