What can you do in 2018? / 2
Eventually, I realised I needed help.
And I laughed out loud when I realised that I needed the kind of help I was planning to provide: an online course.
Altogether this year I spent over £2,700 on training (delivered entirely online) to set up my various websites so they actually work together.
I was incredibly resistant to paying for that training, but after clicking “Buy Now”, I felt great.
Why? Because suddenly I felt truly invested.
I had given myself permission to be a model student, instead of a reluctant observer, trying to reverse-engineer what others had done.
I joined every live call, and consumed the online videos and blog posts as soon as they were released, making copious notes.
On one particular course, they strongly encouraged participants to make comments – it
- leaves a footprint,
- creates accountability, and
- encourages others.
They said: If you can’t think of anything else to write, just say: “I’m here.”
Being the model student, I found I was often the first person to leave a comment.
And after doing this several times, I began to feel a bit silly.
So one day my comment read, more or less, like this:
“Where is everybody else? Have they collapsed? Have you done them in?”
A few hours later, I received an email from the course provider:
Which brings me to you.
