No matter what, don't do nothing.

April 27th, 2010

Seth talks about the paralysis of unlimited opportunity.

He couldn’t be more right.

It’s easy to get sucked into the buzz of opportunity.  There is so so much opportunity.  The horizons are unlimited.

However that can be just as paralysing.

Which way do I go when I can go anywhere?

If it is [paralysing].  As Seth says, create artificial limits and most importantly don’t do nothing.

Doing nothing is the complete opposite buzz kill.  The more you do, the more opportunities you create.

(Note: See previous post Success formula for next decade. The fastest learner (and applicator) wins.)

Marketers should learn from this…

So should entrepreneurs…

Actually just everyone should.  But those groups in particular!

    This is such a great post Ben, really resonates with me. We often have so many opportunities either created by us or brought to us we can get bogged down in which way to go.

    What works for us usually is to imagine our biggest restriction is not a factor (resources). Once we work out what we want to do we bring reality back in to see what we need to work it and go from there.

    But we are guilty of prevaricating more than we should of at time, just overwhelmed with options.
