Last week I shared this random thought on social media and it seemed to strike a chord in people:
mojo note to self: Stop sacrificing your own projects & desires to put everyone else first. Don't be the contractor living in a shitty house!
Can you relate?
I've been feeling stuck and procrastinatey for months now with anything having to do with making the changes I know I need to make for my own website, for my own business... and I think I finally realized why.
Because I haven't made a clear decision about any of it yet!
And now especially, since I've transitioned into talking about business and life, I have all these desires for my website and what I want to do with it in terms of navigation and content and helping people be able to actually find what they're looking for.
But I've been stalled on making the changes, and stalled on creating new posts here, because I've been all flip-floppy and indecisive, hanging around in limbo land of should I move to WP? Is it gonna be worth the hassle? Will I lose something in the process? Should I just stay with what I know? And it's making me stuck, stuck, stuck.
But today, I woke up with the realization that it's never going to be a good time to try to transfer 6+ years of content over to a new site and redesign from scratch. That's never going to sound like something appealing to do- it's just not. Yet it's something I know deep down I need to do in order to create the business I want, and have the online home I see in my mind.
So, I have to make a decision. Finally fix what I have, or move it on up. Either way, I'm sick of being a contractor living in a shitty house of her own making!
So, I'm here to say... I've decided, I'm headed to re-design land.
I'm gonna do it myself, cause that's how I am :) I'm not sure if things will appear kadywhampus around here as I make the transition or not, but either way, this is head's up that I'm not going to be posting regularly for the next little while.
So this is a goodbye for now, until I return with a site I'm motivated to come to myself, that's easy to find your way around, that's clearer about what the hell it is I do.
I'm going to make all the changes I would tell myself, if I were my client, to make! So I guess, in essence, I've decided to take myself on as a client for the next few weeks and give my own self a much needed dose of biz mojo.
So in the interim, I throw it to you... is there a change you've been dreading that you know you need to make? Where can you be more decisive in your business to start to shift out of stuckness? Are your own desires always put on the back-burner to other things you need to get done?
I'd love to hear that I'm not the only one who gets stuck in indecision sometimes, or spends more time focused on helping everyone else so that she forgets to help herself! At least for now, I'm choosing to focus on my own house.
