Do you know that feeling? You have to do something, but somehow you just don’t do it? That’s procrastination. We all do it.
And the funny thing is, we often procrastinate tasks that benefit us in the long-term.
For years, I wanted to write a book. But I never started. For years, I wanted to run every day. But I didn’t. And to be honest, I can go on for a few hours about the stuff I always wanted to do, but never did.
I was a true procrastinate hero.
And if you look at the world today, it’s not a surprise most of us procrastinate.
Don’t be an idiot.
And while we’re at it, a personal brand is hugely overrated. It suggests that you can advance your career by creating a reputation.
But don’t fool yourself. A reputation, or personal brand, is something you don’t fully control.
A lot of people try to tell you that you have to “enhance” your brand. I’ve heard it since 2004 when I got my first sales job while I was in college. The advice was, “work on your personal brand, and you can make a promotion very quickly.”
I often talk about how I like to learn from other people. The primary way I do that is by just studying them.
In most cases, you don’t even need to contact people to learn from them. That’s why people write books and blog posts. That’s also why entrepreneurs speak at events or create courses.
It’s far more effective to use a medium that allows you to reach a lot of people to spread ideas. Otherwise, people would spend their whole lives to do 1-on-1 conversations and emails.
When someone writes a book, they can reach everyone who is interested.
And yet, a lot of people believe they should randomly email people and ask for advice. Why? You can get most of the advice you need by reading the person’s book or blog.
