View Full Version : Keeping your head together

September 8th, 2009, 04:32 PM
I am new to this, or should I say new to being serious about this. The things is, I am reading SEOfaststart, the problogger things, this forum finished the thirty day challenge and working on my sites sing everything I can remotely understand.

I listened to Lynne's webinar today and felt absolutely swamped. There were terms flying around that I had no idea what they were.. Just when I feel I have a grasp, I find I haven't a clue.

How do you keep from going crazy? I find myself having to walk away. I not only want this badly, I need it for some very specific reasons, but losing my sanity may be too big a price.:) How do you keep it all together? I know I'm impatient and want it all to be yesterday.:eek:

Identify and follow your steps.

Do one thing at a time until completion.

Limit what you do to no more than three things a day.

Ask questions!

Anytime you have a questions, just jot it down and then come here and ask.

Be careful that you don't throw yourself into information overload -aka analysis paralysis.

Implement as you go. Don't become a professional student. Read to learn, and learn to apply.

You're not alone, Stephen! I have to sometimes just let things go in one ear and out the other. There is a lot to learn about having an online business but you have to take it one step at a time and not worry about the other stuff.

Focus on your reasons for wanting it to work. You absolutely cannot follow everyone out there when it comes to learning because it will make you crazy hearing such a variety of different opinions. I recommend follow a mentor (or two) until you get the hang of everything. That's only a suggestion but it has helped me.

It will all come together!
