“I believe in not over thinking things too much. When the right thing comes along, you really don’t have a choice.”
– Jason Schwartzman –
So I’ve started a 5 day intensive Business & Marketing course today and it is awesome.
I’ve been running my own mentoring, marketing and branding business for nearly a year now, and I still love learning more about how to improve it. Or even better, be reminded of the stuff that I already know deep inside.
The especially brilliant thing about the course is that it is really hands on. There are a lot of courses out there that will teach you a bunch of stuff, you’ll leave and then fail to implement, because you’ll conveniently not find the time, or bottle it, or just not have the self-discipline to get stuff done. Whereas Kerwin is really committed to ensuring that you leave the course having actually created some really awesome things. Content for your website, content for your blog, ideas for new products, the list goes on . . .
More importantly he doesn’t give you the time or space to over think things. He’ll just teach you the theory, give you a task to do, a small amount of time to complete it and then move on. Which is awesome! And I think this is perfect for entrepreneurs, because sometimes we can be the best procrastinations at time, especially when we don’t have anyone or a boss standing over us with a deadline for us to complete something by.
It’s fine if you’re doing some work for a client, but when it comes to creating your own website, or creating something new or special for your own business, that’s sometimes when it can get popped on the back burner or de-prioritised.
So, my thought for my second post today is, don’t over think stuff. And better still, find someone in your life to hold you accountable to actioning something that you’d deep down really like to cover off. And it doesn’t have to be in business.
I’m sure you have a list of things that you’ve been putting off, that secretly you’d really like to do in your business or your personal life.
So I would say, write this list down, and then pick at least 3 things off of the list, give yourself a deadline to action them by and share this list with a friend, other half or family member. This means that by sharing it, you have committed to making it happen and they can hold you accountable to it. It might be getting a hair cut that you’ve been putting off, having a massage, taking a horse riding lesson, going to see a movie, calling someone you’ve not spoken to in a while and asking them out for a drink, the list is endless.
All you need to do is write the list, don’t over think it, and just start taking action to make some awesome things happen in your life. And most importantly, make them happen for you.
Lots of love, hugs and light,

Inspiration for this post
Great advice! “Not over thinking things” is a theme in my life as of late. I tend to get inspired a lot and I have a lot of creative ideas, but my problem is that I usually run out of the energy to implement said ideas due to over-thinking. I have tried the list approach, but not in a while. I did it a lot in college when i was working 6 jobs and taking 20 credit hours. I made lists and lists about lists, and sometimes they helped and sometimes they just made me feel more overwhelmed. I have matured and changed a lot since college so it may be time to start writing down my goals and prioritizing again.. I am glad I read this post because you have reminded me of something I already knew deep inside…action plan and implementation here I come!
