“There art two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness.” Frank Kafka
I admit it…. I am not the most patient of people. But, I’m working on it. What about you? Are you a patient person when it matters most?
You know, there aren’t that many situations in which patience is a bad thing. As a matter of fact, I could have avoided some rather sticky problems if only I have waited.
The problem is…. we can be forced into impatience by our circumstances….we’re tired, we’re under pressure, or we’re busy.
However, here’s what you must know…
The Impatient Business Blogger Always Ends Up Broke, Disgusted, and Frustrated… Always!
I am no saint. I have been an impatient blogger. I was the broke, disgusted, and frustrated business blogger… may just like you.
I doubt that there’s a business blogger in the world who hasn’t been frustrated by the 3- or 6 month mark when things just aren’t moving as fast as we want.
We start to doubt the experience entirely. We start to wonder if we should just ABANDON SHIP! After all, it’s not working… we have to get results right… we need them now!
Hold On…. Patience really is a virtue.
It takes some time to build an audience, and momentum is your friend. Most of us don’t take off like rockets. We build slowly at first, then the snowball starts to grow. Such is the essence of success… right?
So yes, right now I am going to ask you to do, what you may feel is almost impossible to do… Relax… Be PATIENT.
If you’re not finding the audience you want yet, ask yourself:
- Is my topic actually interesting to someone other than my dad, dad, significant other, my cat or dog?
- Do I give my readers more than I ask to receive from them? (Stop! take some time to really think about this question)
- Am I working on cultivating a network of like-minded bloggers, and supporting their work as much as I hope they’ll support mine?
If the answers are yes, you’ll need to cultivate a little patience. Maybe even a good dose of stubbornness. Trust me, I know it isn’t easy. Read or Watch Ted.com if you must, to keep yourself motivated while you feel impatient overwhelming you.
Are you the impatient blogger? If so, what challenges are you facing that is leading you to feel so frustrated in your business blogging efforts?
If you have ever felt like the impatient business blogger, and have gone beyond this point to a level of success in blogging we want to hear from you. What did you do? How did you move beyond the invisible ‘time clock’?
