Passion without process is poison. Let that sink in to your business plan for a minute. How many people have you encountered who have a great passion for their business or hobby but attack their passion with no systematic approach and no help?
Like a kitten in a paper bag violently running one side to the other, struggling against imaginary barriers, becoming exhausted with all the effort yet success eludes them.
Perhaps you have experienced the same battle. Working feverishly to “do it yourself” as though proving you can succeed alone is more import than the magnitude of your success.
I believe it happens for one of three reasons.
1. We refuse to share the glory of success with anyone else. We would rather have 100% of nothing than 20% or millions.
2. We don’t have the trust or tolerance needed to partner with others in the work we must do.
3. We have no actual plan or system to get the work done so we run ourselves crazy with overwhelm trying to prove our worth to everyone else. Often to realize the people we were trying to impress weren’t even paying any attention.
Take some time to develop partnerships where you can develop a plan and divide the load or you will soon find yourself in burnout.
