Yes, we (hubby and I) sort of made that deal recently. Cause we had enough of giving I-have-no-time excuse and keep on delaying. So we thought setting a deadline for ourselves will eventually push us to do things.
Last year we told ourselves that we’ll have a few new start-ups this year, fulfilling our many more passion in life. Okay, read the sentence back, I said “A Few”, not just “One”. Oh so ambitious eh?
I even wrote that down in my new year list early this year. But instead of “A Few”, I wrote “At least another”. Lowering my expectation and give myself rooms to not feel bad if I don’t have “A Few”.
Well, look at us now. It’s August, half of the year is gone and we only have less than 5 months for 2011. Yet we don’t have any new start-up yet. All of them is forever in progress. Not good.
I tried to comfort myself, at least I did restructuring both sites that we have now and the business plan is clearer for the future. But it doesn’t cover the fact that we fail to launch new stuff.
So, this is the month of making things happen. Either now or keep on delaying.
My progress so far, creating coming soon page. I made two kinds, but decide to stick with the soft approach instead of the bold one. This is something that I’ve been wanting to do since 2 years ago, but the I-am-not-good-enough mentality killed it.
This post itself is to remind me that I have decided to take my 1st step. Keep this kind of momentum and bring it til the finish line.
