One of my favorite business gurus is Jeff Walker, and in one of his blogs he talks about the benefits of repeated action, and I think his message is critical. We as business owners must take action, and by repeating those actions over and over and over again, we’re going to learn and refine. Jeff gives a great example of how he started his business and his first online videos were very rough. He was just getting content out there but over time he learned about online videos, he learned what his audience wanted to hear and he learned how to deliver a more effective message, and he found himself in a cycle of improvement.
The same can be true for the rest of us. We can improve, we can grow. The key is that we start the process of repeated action. Don’t just plan, plan, plan, plan and do and learn and refine and then do again and do again and do again. I think you’ll find that repeated action allows you to get better and better and it’s much better to take action and fall short than to live in a theoretical world and try to plan. Your progress will be much faster when you start taking action and repeated actions.
