You always see all of these affiliate blogs offering the advice “just do it!” While I see their point that the only way to see success is to try things, accumulate data and try again, i’m not sure it’s always the right advice for every situation.
I would currently like to concentrate a percentage of my efforts on a long term business model. I have no lack of ideas. In fact, ideas constantly pop into my head for longer term business models. The problem is that I’m smart enough to know that not all of these ideas are great nor practical. I’d say for the last 6 months i’ve been in a mode where I come up with ideas for long term business models but don’t act on them. The reason I haven’t been acting is that I don’t 100% believe in the concept or idea. I’m not afraid to take a leap or make a move – I just want to put my efforts towards something that I truly believe in because confidence get’s you through the tough times.
I think that all entrepreneurs should be able to tell a good idea from a bad one even if they came up with it themselves. It’s true that you need to do SOMETHING to move forward but leaping from project to project with no direction or plan in the name of doing something isn’t a good strategy at all.
