For the last few years, I’ve not been the most active of types. I’ve done what we we all do, talk about how I’m going to go back to the gym and get fit, but never actually doing it.
Well… I did it. Last week.
And as I write, I can feel the pain searing up and down the muscles in my arms.
I’ve started doing Les Mills fitness classes. And I enjoy them. You get a whole body workout which, because I hate cardio machines, I don’t really get outside of a class.
But however much it hurts, the pain makes me happy, because that’s an indication of success. It tells me that the classes are working, my muscles are working, and I’m beginning to get back into shape.
Internet marketing gives you similar indications of success.
No, not in a physical way, unless you’re running your business with someone and they’re punching you in the arm every time a sale comes in.
Usually it hurts in a time way, because when you start to get successful, you begin to work more. You start to see your hard work paying off and you want to do more of it.
Which is completely normal.
That’s exactly what happened to me.
…stick to your plan. Stick to your work schedule. Don’t just start doing more, because I can guarantee that 80% of the “more” you’ll be doing, will be completely wasted. It won’t be making you more money, it will just be taking up more of your time with things you don’t need to do.
P.S. If you need a plan. Here’s the best one I ever made.
