What I have decided is good for my business.
|The Shiny Item Syndrome when you can’t resist buying that fancy, or expensive, thing for your home, car, or whatever. I found that I was suffering from this syndrome when it came to trainings and programs. I would sign up for the next program that taught me a system or technique which might give me an edge for my community. I have decided that this is not a good thing for my life or my community.
It wasn’t that I was spending a great deal. I chose many free courses which I felt were helpful. I was taking trainings every week and not really getting anywhere in my business by doing this. I was spending time improving myself, and I thought this would bring my business forward, but this was not really happening. I was taking the next interesting thing and not really thinking about if this was bringing me forward.
Right now, I will taking the knowledge that I have amassed since taking all these trainings and applying it more than taking other trainings. I have decided to take part in one more Facebook challenge because it directly relates to what I want to manifest in my business, namely a marketing challenge I will be doing this week. Other than that, I will be more discriminating about the trainings and webinars that I take part in.
I decided that my “Shiny Item Syndrome” was just draining time and effort that I could be spending taking care of my community. I have added a new aspect to my business, Joint Ventures, and last week I did a challenge related to Joint Ventures. It directly related to what I wanted to create for my business and my clients.
I believe in self-improvement but that only goes so far. I will be concentrating on courses which actually gives me and my community something. Action is the key for me now, not more learning.
