I came across this quote today and took it in like a much needed drink of water. Yes, I thought… I’m chasing two rabbits. In reality, I’m chasing many rabbits.
I’ve concluded that I’m a research-aholic. I love, love, love to learn new things, to ingest all kinds of information – but my downfall happens when I am done. Rather than use that information to make any significant changes to my life, I often move on to something else… the next bag of toys that will stimulate my mind.
This happens in my Internet Marketing business, too, which is why I focus mostly on research and development of new techniques and systems. Well, I’m really good at the researching, but I’m lacking on the development side because I’m chasing too many rabbits.
So I’m looking at making a shift – maybe my strength is really my downfall…? Maybe it’s time for a change. Time to stretch and grow outside of my comfort zone in my work.
“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.” – Paulo Coelho
Other life circumstances are whispering this to me and today I’ve made a decision. I feel energized by it. I feel nervous about it. But I’m putting it out there and hoping that, like Ralph Waldo Emerson said,
“Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen.”
