Since I’m off today I figured I’d move forward with a post that provides you with a little context about the situation here. I’ve got a situation where I believe I’m going to outsource some work for this site. Mainly because my site is like a puzzle where I’ve finished flipping the pieces.
Kind of a cool too, because I’ve spent hours upon hours of my life working on this thing and it’s about time I’ve put it together.
It’s like that big Haley’s Comet puzzle I finished as a kid, where I invested a lot of time flipping over every piece of the puzzle and organizing them so I could begin the tedious, yet fun task of putting the puzzle together with my parents.
Truth is– I realized that much like how my parents helped me put that puzzle together, sometimes you need help when it comes to your business development.
In addition, the elephant in the room is actually pride.
Pride Kills a Content Project… If You Let It
You see, when you have too much pride in your work you can easily become short-sited.
This goes for the day job too, but I’m going to limit this puzzle scenario my person communications blog.
And I say that pride goes hand in hand with short-sitedness because when you neglect seeking help you sometimes take on unnecessary burdens.
Kind of places you in a situation where you think you have to be better than what you are when you take on too much work by yourself.
For me, when I tend to chase perfection, so my work sometimes becomes less work, rather. It becomes a thorn in my side to make sure my thoughts are properly displayed.
The end result is– I feel as though I’m not as good as I thought.
Sadly, that will eat away at your desire to succeed when you think like that. Mainly because you’re spending too much time trying to be perfect while not realizing all you need is a little help.
So that’s where I’m at with this site. Moving forward I intend on building a body of work by enlisting talented people to help me.
It only makes sense too, because now I understand that having great people in your corner only produces great things.
Check out this YouTube video. He’s the creator of Kaplan University. In his effort to become a successful entrepreneur, he learned that money and manure are similar. If you collect a bunch of it you start to smell like shit. But if you spread it around, beautiful things start to grow.
Kind of fits in with this spring season on the rise. I’m noticing colors changing and the world getting brighter.
Moving forward with this puzzle of mine, I believe I’m going to cling to the manure-money parable.
