Start Your Experiment Today

January 4, 2010

Become More Successful By Trying Something New.
To invest in yourself, just take the next step…

“When I was young, I observed that nine out of ten things I did were failures. So I did ten times more work.” (George Bernard Shaw)

I think we’ve all come up against ideas that we’ve shelved because we’re afraid they just won’t work out. Redesign my website? Start my own email newsletter? Hire someone to write new prospecting letters for me? No way! The timing is wrong. What if it doesn’t work out?

But what if we changed the way we thought about failure?

Failure is life’s best teacher. Untried ideas are always “possibilities.” But possibilities don’t close the deal, get the referral, or form new community relationships. They’re simply unanswered questions. And we can’t learn the answers to those questions without experimenting.

It might seem crazy, but right now is the ideal time to launch a new project to improve your business. What you learn now will pay you exponentially when the market improves. You’ll already be in motion while others are just starting to learn.

Make a commitment today to identify ONE idea that you’ve been kicking around and write down the very next action you’d have to do to get the ball rolling. Even if that next step is simply brainstorming, invest in yourself and start the experiment today.
