When it’s a glob – “a small amount of a liquid or substance in a round shape”, says the Oxford English Dictionary.
Which, given I’ve not uploaded a post in six weeks, is pretty much what my blog has become.
Having wheeled out the same excuses myself that so many of you have used enough times to have had copyrighted – such as ‘I’ve been busy’, ‘I had the wee man Saturday and had *stuff* to do Sunday’ and ‘Well I just can’t do everything at once’ – it’s time for a new approach.
So I’ve gone wild. I’ve downloaded the WordPress app for android and – get this – am blogging away on my train commute to work. I know, radical.
There is a serious point here though. I’ve found that in my work life, my personal life, and in my professional development and approach to networking, I benefit immensely from having a plan. It doesn’t need to be a big plan, sometimes not even a written plan, but an outline with some kind of structure that helps me focus on what I’m trying to achieve and how.
No quick fixes, but playing the long-game with methodical, measured, adaptable and sustained dedication.
Of course everyone is different and what works for me might not work for you. However that is the beauty of your plan – it belongs to you and you develop it to suit your style and needs.
Don’t take my word for it, why not try it?
In the meantime I’m planning to make my blog a little less glob and more bite size. More portable and manageable so that it works for me.
I hope it works for you.
