One thing is for sure, I’m no adept at business management & I haven’t mastered the marketing tools available for small businesses. And I guess it’s normal to one point, since I haven’t paid so much attention to expanding my brand or to building a consistent following.
But now it’s time to turn this around. Working on myLifebox this past month has been a hell of a process. And that’s how I realized that I was mostly fooling around before that.
Quitting your 9-5 job, or actually never applying for one, needs balls guys. I can’t help but think that the only way to do wonders is to set the bar high. Because we all can be decent or good at something. Particularly, I believe that if you are not focusing on something specific, people can be decent/good at many many things. And here is the normal question…what do you want? to be the best at what you do or, anyway, the best of who you can be? or you’d rather be good at many fields?
I know I put it like I strongly believe that the answer should be “be the best at what you do”. But the truth is that I’m not 100% sure that that’s the case. Truth to be told, what’s wrong with being good at many things? Not acing anything. How does that feel?
I always struggled with these thoughts. Maybe because it is way easier to just be good at many things. Think about it, putting no more than 20% of your potential effort into something and seeing results can be very confusing. You immediately think “well, that was easy, let’s keep it up that way and yay” BUT here is the trap. That is exactly the point where you should say “ok that’s great, but now I’m going to work my ass off”.
Well, that’s exactly what I didn’t do the past year and a half. And that’s exactly what I plan on doing for myLifebox from now on. Because having the potential of being something is not the same as actually becoming that something. I don’t know what my potential is, but I’m going to figure it out along the way.
