Not working on your best idea? Well, you are probably wasting potential

There are few fields in life more in-depth and more time consuming than the Internet. Online marketing activities can easily lap up hours upon hours of a person’s time, any given Sunday.

Time management, then, becomes downright crucial.

And not just time management — prioritizing what you are working on is even more critical for success. Fact is that if you are not working on your best idea, you are not just wasting your time, you are wasting your potential for success.

This is a remarkably simple statement that most everyone will agree with.

Yet, most ignore it.

By circumstance or condition, most ignore it.

Instead they work on other smaller projects, side projects, or just making ends meet, making things work, maintaining the status quo. Get help if you need, seek some extra hands, outsource, hire a virtual assistant, an army of virtual assistants, if necessary.

But roll up your sleeves and start working on your best idea.

The easiest thing, by far, in online marketing is to get overwhelmed with so many different ideas that you lose track. Instead you do not get started with any of them. Bad mistake!

Only your best idea is worth your time and attention.

And if you feel it still is not the right time to tackle it, maybe you need a bit more experience, a bit more resources, you work towards solving those issues first. If you wait too long, someone else might implement your idea, implement it better, and take your market away from you.

  • Great points. I think the reason is that usually the best ideas are the most difficult and time consuming ones. Because of this, people are overwhelmed or scared and put them off to the side to do other time consuming, but easier work. The lesson is to trust your idea and follow the best one regardless of how challenging it seems.

  • A lot of valid and smart points, Melanie. My question would be how do you know which idea is the best? Are you supposed just know or trust your instincts, or do you have a method to identify the best idea?

    • That’s an interesting concept. I guess it’s impossible to “know” your best idea without implementing all of them. However, you can use your best guess and some market research to figure out which one could be the best.

  • I agree that time management is crucial. Whether it’s your best idea or not, I think the bigger message is to commit your time to one idea rather than spreading time out across a few ideas. Spreading out like that will result in a quality drop among the 3 as opposed to the one.

  • Love this. Getting your priorities in check is just so important to succeed in this business. Being your own boss leaves you a lot of time, but if you don’t use it and allocate it properly, it’s a waste. You need to prioritize the most important things for your business.

  • A very basic concept. However, this is a MUST read for those just starting out. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Keep that in mind and manage your time effective.
