When the results of our “art” don’t arrive in the immediate term — what do we do? Give up our art because…
No one is reading it? no one is watching it? no one is seeing it? no one is buying it? All these questions and reasons may be valid — but the question is — What do we do now?
Keep creating and keep getting better and know that it will generate fruits in the long term. That’s the courage to keep creating because you’re an artist in the first place.
An art to writing a blog, creating a video, creating a podcast, to help someone in need.
Entrepreneurship is not about grinding and hustling and wracking your health. It’s about making your life and other lives better. It’s a myth that you’ve to grind all the time to become an entrepreneur and fulfill your desires. You can work all day, all week juggling many things and not get anything done.
How do you make better decisions? You have all the valid data points, you have done the impact analysis of each options and you have run through the data many time and still unsure about it? That means your intuition is saying something — listen to it.
If you work in any way in the online business industry(startup founders/entrepreneurs/coaches/therapists/etc), and don’t know “WHO” is your specific audience — what I have learned is that “speaking to everyone is speaking to no one”. You just have to find a few believers and when you do — the 99% of the non-believers won’t matter.
Warren Buffett wrote in one of his letters to Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders: “We can ask our CEOs to manage for maximum long-term value, rather than next quarter earnings. We certainly don’t ignore the current result of our businesses – in most cases, they are of great importance – but never want to be achieved at the expense of our building ever-greater competitive strengths. “
Here is my take: It’s not complacency, it’s long-term thinking over short-term scarcity thinking. This same rule applies in goal setting. Let’s say you set up a goal to achieve something in 3 months, but sacrifice sleep, relationships, and friendships. But, if achieving the same goal takes 3.5-4 months without sacrificing anything — I’d choose the longer period.
I know how hard it can be for Introverts to question and challenge other’s ideas and beliefs. I often see introverts accept their boss’s instructions without questioning them. Do you ever felt helpless after that?
I used to be like that.
If you want to grow and own your voice, you get to question things from curiosity. Best teams are only created when the best ideas win and introverts speak for themselves. It’s possible.
