I really like automation.
It’s something that I enjoy setting up, it’s something that saves me time, it’s something that gives me benefits whilst also using some of my core skills.
But, when things aren’t going your way, automation can also be your enemy.
Because, when things aren’t going your way, they weigh you down. You feel the weight on your shoulders, you feel it within your brain.
That weight, that heaviness; it makes it harder for you to keep going. It means the simple things that you need to be doing, they just don’t get done. The tasks that you need to complete take twice as long.
Because of that, the weight increases. The struggle continues.
The thing is, most of the time, when we feel like this, we don’t actually need a solution. We don’t need a way out.
We just need to feel like we’re moving forwards.
And that’s why automation can sometimes be your enemy.
That’s why, sometimes, you need to force yourself to do some easy activities.
Set yourself a simple target.
And then just watch yourself as you hit those targets.
Especially when it comes to bringing new clients into your business.
I’ve got a little something planned about this – how to escape the everyday struggle by setting yourself the right targets.
It’s coming soon…
