Several weeks ago I agreed to create an online course called Achieve with Ease, and the process hasn't been easy. I wanted to deliver an excellent product, but found myself struggling with the equipment and being myself in front of the camera. I even started questioning my content. It was tough!
So I put my advice to the test. Here are the four key steps that worked for me -
1) Break the process down into small steps
2) Ask for help
3) Stay persistent
4) Find ways to make it fun
I'm so grateful for everyone who has supported me in the process. It took way longer than I expected, but I successfully recorded the content, which is a huge step forward.
That's the funny thing about goals... It's never really about what you achieve, it's about who you become in the process. I've learned so much about myself, technology, writing, and content creation. I feel much more comfortable filming (in front and behind the camera). I've also gotten practice asking for help. Today I'm reminded that with enough persistence, playfulness, and diligence, anything is possible.
When you're clear on what you want (and why), keep taking action (even when it gets tough) and soon you'll move from feeling frustrated to fantastic.
Achieving goals isn't always easy, but it's worth the effort. If you're working on a project that's driving you crazy, remember why you started and keep going. You can do it!
