“Give me six hours to chop down a tree, I’ll spend the first four sharpening my axe.” – Abraham Lincoln.
It doesn’t matter what you do, whether working in a job, or working on your business, you need to hone your skills. If you are an author, you need to write, daily if you are a musician, you need to work your craft. Its been commonly said, that to master a skill, you need to preform that skill for at least ten thousand hours. Now, I don’t know if that is true, but I do know that you need to do what ever you do, consistently, with out fail. Not just have a skill, but a habitual skill, that others can count on you to do, regardless of anything else that may get in your way. Now, how can you use this practice in your business? As yourself, what skill am I good at, that I can be better at. Then, how can I use that skill, to move my business forward? I know for me, I study marketing, in all its forms I focus on on line, but even that, takes many forms, and is shifting, with the mobile trends. I study them, and do my best to write about them in various formats, weather that be here on this blog, or in books, or in my social media spaces. How can I do it better? Obviously, get the books out, write more blog posts, and make sure that people are seeing the content. In short, take consistent, daily action.
