Every Startup, regardless of its misty origins or enthusiastic support, reaches a point in its preparation when something tangible has to be done. All the thinking, dreaming, research, and what-ifs have to be set aside in favor of Action. As obvious as it is, nothing gets done without Action.
This Blog is a startup, of sorts, for a new phase of my life. I’ve retired from active work. I have no job. It’s wonderful!
It’s time to step out of the offices and the storefronts and stretch my legs as a writer of business wisdom. Not that I have any particular store of it. But what little I have gets to go on display and will attract its share of raspberries and huzzahs. And I’ll get to do my share of new research to stay ahead of everyone else.
So, what Action for me? I’d say concrete Goals and Plans.
Some would say this should have Mission, or Purpose at the head. But this is a small endeavor, for now, and such higher ideals will only get in the way, one more time, of what really needs to be — Action.
So, an Initial Action is to write this post. My Initial Action Goal is to write another dozen. A secondary Goal is to compile a list of 100 potential topics to write about. My Action Plan is to write posts, research blog enhancements, activate various affiliate programs, and participate in selected promotion activities to increase readership.
Simple. Direct. Effective.
What Goals, Plans or Actions would you recommend?
