What’s the biggest blocker to you shipping something today?
Coming up with an idea?
Too many other seemingly important things to do?
Think about the process you need to go though to go from start to finish.
Write it down.
Here’s mine as a writer of a blog post.
- Blog post idea.
- Formatting and Publishing.
I am find the first 3 steps easy. I am rubbish (beyond rubbish) at the last 2.
I hate editing. By the time I drag myself through it I am tired and find it hard to focus on formatting and publishing. If I am able to skip the editing part then I do like the final step.
I have identified that the thing blocking me is editing. Therefore that is what I need to work on and improve.
This is my experience, but I would love to hear yours.
Write down your creative process in steps from start to finish (do it in the comments below). It doesn’t matter is you are a writer, photographer, painter, jewelry maker, entrepreneur or anything.
Try and make it 5 steps or less – we’re just talking the big milestones here.
Now identify the one thing that is blocking you from shipping your product, service or business.
That is what you need to focus on and make a priority.
Post your stuff in the comments and the Create & Conquer tribe will help and support you.
