Decisions, Decisions

Ever have a big task you know you need to get moving on but it’s so overwhelming you don’t know where to start?

You start with one small action.

For example – we’re moving into our new home office and its pretty much mass chaos. The picture really doesn’t do it justice. My other half worked hard on it this morning while I was working hard at my laptop. This is just one corner (my creative communications corner in the cabin).

It was even more of a mess just two hours ago. I kept looking at it thinking of all the things I needed to do FIRST to bring it all together. I was overwhelmed.

I took a break, then made one small decision: a small table I had in here was more appropriate for the new house. After I made the decision, I acted on it and carried the table to the new place.

Once that small decision was made and the task was done, I started moving the remaining pieces into place. I have a long way to go – but I’m much farther along than I was.

When you’re not sure where to start, or even what you need, decide and act.

You’ll feel like you’ve accomplished something rather than spinning your wheels. Every time you decide and act – not only does it get easier – things start falling into place.

So – what’s one marketing communications item related to your business or service you could decide on right now and follow up with action?

Writing and publishing a blog post (it will never be perfect)?

Creating a social media page for your business (you’ll always be improving it)?

Finally tackling a business plan line by line?

If you’re not sure where to start in your marketing communications efforts – step back, look at the big puzzle as a whole, identify one piece of that puzzle, decide and act.

If you’re not even sure what you need – make the decision and ask for help.

Use the contact form below and send me an email – tell me about yourself, tell me about your business – just start typing (don’t worry about grammar, punctuation, sentence structure – no judgement here – just let your thoughts flow) then hit send.

I’d love to hear your story.

P.S. I’ll update this blog post when my creative communications corner is done. 🙂
