What are the most productive actions in your business?
Checking off more items on your to-do list? Working longer hours? Getting another certification? Trying to make your website better?
Many such actions feel productive but don’t actually build your business. Besides having a "to do" list, you may want to define a TO-DROP list as well.
One up of the hangups a lot of us have — especially if we care about accuracy or fear being judged — is to not post content because we haven’t yet done enough research.
This is a trap, because for any topic, there will always be more research to do. It’s endless.
How then do we create content consistently, while respecting the need to do research?
“On a daily basis, I go from task to task, event to event, responding to the world’s demands, reacting to urgencies, emails, and deadlines. I don’t have any ‘thinking time’… to reflect, to reconnect to my deeper purpose & motivation.”

If that describes you, then this post is for you…
You’re a connector and love introducing people to each other. It can be a wonderful (sometimes career-changing) effect when it’s the right match!
Yet, when it’s the wrong match — unfortunately much of the time — by being the connector, you just added a burden to them. Now they’re in an awkward position you’ve forced them into, where one person, if they don’t want to connect, will come across as unfriendly or unapproachable.
