How to Get Out of Your Own Way By Relentlessly Focusing on One Thing
Many of us aren’t reaching our full potential or achieving the massive success we should be because we’re not sticking with one thing and seeing it all the way through. We drop things before they’ve really taken hold, and we change our minds based on evidence that only exist in our minds. What are some of the false things the voices in our heads tell us and how can we debunk them? On this episode, I talk about something very important, which is focusing on one thing so that we can see it through.
You can put something out into the world and still reserve the right to make it better. -Dana Malstaff
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
We can’t do everything at once, or else we dilute the effectiveness of all those things. The market gets confused if we’re about too many things.
Even if something is not perfect, it’s better to put it out there, and get some sort of feedback, instead of only listening to the skewed feedback from the voice in our heads.
We have big, beautiful voices, and important things to say, but if we’re not consistently saying something repetitive to the audience, nothing will be memorable.
When it comes to creating great programs, we are very often our own worst enemies. We stop ourselves from finishing things, because our fear gets in the way. We’re either afraid that we’ll have to stick with one thing forever, or worried that the thing we’re trying to launch isn’t good enough to put out into the market. The truth is, the most successful people make it because they shut the fear out, and they are relentless about that one thing till they see it through. It doesn’t mean they don’t have other things going on, but they know that in order to grow something worthwhile, persistence and consistency on one thing is critical.
