Taken from one of my "Bits & Pieces" facebook Live presentations: I typically see online business success as a little like a puzzle with 4000 or more pieces. If you leave it on the shelf, still in the box, it will never get done. It is all about the long game, preparation, planning, strategy, and guidance.
You need to prepare a place suitable to work on it. Your bed, made or unmade, is probably not a good choice. The kitchen table? Better, but you may not have time before it is needed for something else. A card table, set up in a quiet corner of a room, where it will not be in the way is a winner. A separate room, just for puzzles, with a door that closes, would be fantastic.
Setting out some time to work on it every day, or almost every day, is a good beginning. Sticking to that plan will move you forward. So you begin with the edge pieces and work your way inwards. Sometime you have patches that you just can't seem to get. You work around those, tackling other bits and leave the problems areas aside until later.
But you are always referring to the box lid, aren't you? It is your guide to how things fit together, to what pieces you will need next, it keeps you on the right path. Have you ever tried making a puzzle without the lid?
Keep the 4000+ piece puzzle in mind when you are building your online business!
And that's just another piece of the puzzle!
