I am a fan of Toby Keith, the country singer. He has a song called “A little less talk, a lot more action.” It’s a good theme to follow in many areas of our lives!
I can’t tell you how many people I talk with, and when the subject turns to making money online, everybody seems to have a plan! They are going to do this, and they are going to do that. After their current project is finished they are finally going to get into e-commerce. This is the year that they are going to build a website for their business, even though their top competitors all had websites 5 years ago. Another guy is complaining about not having money for the rent, and he wants to set up a blog to earn some extra money, but he’s been talking about doing it for 3 years now.
The thing is, if you are all talk and no action, you won’t ever make any money online! You need to put together a plan, and even better than that – you need to follow it! Set up a schedule with deadlines of when you must complete the tasks! Build in penalties for yourself if you don’t follow through. Build in rewards for yourself when you reach milestones! You build the site, maybe you get to buy yourself that new digital camera that you’ve been wanting. First sale on the net? Go out for a night on the town! First check from AdSense – hey, that calls for a party! In other words, it doesn’t have to be work, it can be fun! I know that the things I do to earn money online are almost all fun for me. Sure, at times they are work, but overall they are fun activities!
Remember, if you just talk and talk and talk, those checks won’t be in your mailbox! Take a few hours per week and get some things done. You’ll be surprised at the results!
