Entrepreneurs by nature love starting new things.
And it’s a great gift to be able to launch out into the unknown and act on your dreams.
I quit my job in 2011 before I had all my ducks in a row to start my own freelance copywriting business. And it wasn’t easy. That first year I made very little money.
But fast forward 6 years and I’m getting the hang of it. I stay booked pretty solid. My big struggle now isn’t, “How do I find clients to pay me well for copywriting work?”
Instead it’s, “Do I even want to keep doing this? I want to do something new!”
Great talk this morning with my friend Dan (No, Dan is not my invisible friend. I just took the pic after he left).
It’s Saturday and since I decided that Saturdays will be Free Days from now on I refuse to think or write about anything work related.
So instead I’ll talk about a great conversation I just had with my friend Dan Freiss.
We were talking about life, God, giftings, etc. when I told him how I often struggle with the fear of wasting my life. And how I wonder, “Am I really doing what God has called me to do?”
Do you ever wonder if it’s better to focus on habits or goals?
For the longest time I was more into goals than habits. I’d dream big and write down things I wanted to do like: quit my job, buy a house, summit Mt. Rainier.
I like goals because they inspire me. But then I started to get too obsessed with the “process” of goal setting. And somewhere along the way, the goal setting process became what it was about more than the actual goals/dreams.
