The Lazy Way to Start Your Internet Business
Lazy isn't necessarily a bad thing. It doesn't have to mean doing nothing. It can mean being more effective by not wasting time and effort on doing the wrong things. So what are the right things to do? And when should you do them? Can you be lazy and rich using the Internet?
So you've had this bright idea that you're going to make millions on the web. And like all the other 1.4 billion people online you've been told how easy it is. Youíre all fired up and ready to go. The world is your lobster.
But after a couple of days, when things aren't necessarily coming together and you start to have doubts and second thoughts how will you manage the situation.
Will you persevere or fold? Will you sacrifice that drink down the pub with your mates or convince yourself another day won't matter?
Because the next thing you realise a month will have passed by, maybe two and you're nowhere further forward. You've lost all momentum and focus and you give up.
And like the majority, you'll probably just right-off the money and time and put it down to experience.
Let's face it. We're all a bit lazy. We want results without the pain and effort and we want it all now.
So what went wrong? Was it the product? Was it the wrong time? Was it a lack of money? Was it too time consuming?
Or was it the lack of a realistic strategy? Did you really understand what you needed to do before you started? Did you have a realistic plan? Were you unrealistic in your expectations?
And this is where someone who is perhaps a little lazier than most may actually be at an advantage.
Lazy doesn't necessarily mean not doing anything at all.
Lazy can mean being more effective by not wasting time and effort on doing the wrong things at the wrong time.
Lazy can mean spreading out tasks at a more realistic pace and just doing enough each day
Enthusiasm and dedication could mean weeks researching a product but leave you completely ignorant of how to market and sell it.
Total commitment may even be detrimental to your current employment that you'll need to fund you through your start-up.
Over eagerness could lead you believing youíll be a millionaire overnight when it will actually take months if not years.
So maybe a more laid back approach is required. Maybe you should be thinking the lazy manís way?
Start with a simple strategy Ė preferably copied from someone has who already made the mistakes you want to avoid and who actually makes money.
Research just enough to know that your product has a market online.
Develop a realistic timescale that reflects what you really can achieve
And look for that emotional crutch; someone who will actually support you in your efforts and not try and put you down all the time.
Bottom line - It's crucial for any project to have momentum. We have to push to get things started. But you have to know where to push and how hard.
And you have to keep pushing at a sustainable pace and not burn yourself out too quickly
