Early last year, I wrote an article about the Chris Farrell Membership and my overall thoughts about this now-well-known internet marketing teacher. When I first worked with Chris in an extensive course that I took with him, I honestly had never heard of him.
Of course, that has changed, and most people involved in online marketing now have at least heard his name. That’s because he is a very, very good teacher. Chris Farrell is also just so darned likable, it’s hard to join any program of his and NOT take action.
For example, if you join up with the Chris Farrell Membership and begin learning from him and DON’T take action, you’re just going to feel terrible! Part of this is because he really puts his heart into the things that he teaches.
He has spent a lot of time putting together his instructional videos, his learning modules, and the countless examples he offers. You almost cannot help but take action.
At least that was how it was for me. And you may not know it from looking at this small website of mine, but THIS VERY WEBSITE is the product of what I learned from Chris. Now… maybe you don’t particularly LIKE this site – but that’s ok! 🙂 It means a lot to me – I’m quite proud of the effort since this is something I did on my own (well, with Chris’ guidance and examples).
I did not hire any of it out, nor did anyone but ME do the writing. So yeah, I am pretty proud of what I’ve learned and applied.
So, today I want to show you something ELSE I have learned how to do. Again, this may not be a big deal to some of you out there, but it is to me. I decided to update my review about Chris Farrell, and THIS TIME I made a Chris Farrell Membership Review video! I confess that I did not use a script, and this will be quite evident when you listen to my voice! 🙂
But, I’m ok with it, because I spoke from the heart.
Therefore, without any further ado, please check out my NEW and UPDATED Chris Farrell Membership Review as well as my video! Oh… I had another treat after I uploaded the video… Chris popped over and left me a really nice comment on Facebook. That made me feel great! Anyway, here is my newest review:
If you read my earlier post a couple of months ago about how I got a copy of the book “The Procrastination Cure – 7 Steps to Stop Putting Life Off” (by Jeffery Combs), you’ll know that this is a VERY important – if not somewhat touchy topic for me.
WHY do I have to spill out my guts every time I sit down to write? I honestly do not know.
It just happens. I cannot seem to help it, and I cannot seem to stop it.
This stuff touches quite a nerve with me, because (as you’ll see when you read my review), procrastination and I have a long relationship. Oh yeah, we go waaaay back.
For example – and this just came to me: WHY did I fail at being a Girl Scout? It wasn’t that I didn’t WANT to earn badges. But, I kept putting off doing the work. So, I never got the girl scout badges, and my Girl Scout career ended on a less-than-satisfactory note by 4th grade.
(It’s actually quite the story… More of a confession, actually: Suffice it to say I forged some initials on Girl Scout Badge Pages in the Handbook, and then blamed my little sister for it. The scout leader somehow knew I lied, and my sister was off the hook. Sadly, I was not. That was my last day at Girl Scouts. See what procrastination can do for you?)
There are some things that I put off because I’m afraid to do them. Afraid or not – it’s still procrastination.
There are other things that I put off because I’m still mired in emotions about them. “Should I? Shouldn’t I? Will it be GOOD? Will it be BAD?” Yikes… what a chocolate mess cowtowing to procrastination can caucse!
The worst type of procrastination – I think – is something that you’ll read about in my article – which started out primarily as a review about Jeff Combs’ book “The Procrastination Cure…”
The worst type is when you put something off for so long that there comes a day when it’s actually just too late. You couldn’t complete the activity if you ate your Wheaties, drove a Ferrari to the site, or even if you were handed a million dollars on the spot to do it.
Because it’s just too late. The person is no longer living, and it is a physical impossibility to now complete the activity that was put off for so long.
So. There you have it.
As I was writing my review of the book, I thought about WHERE on this website I should place it. Should I place it under “Personal Goals and Motivation?” Or perhaps “Life Strategies for Success?” Surely, the article can fit in either of those categories.
But for the moment, I have placed it under “Entrepreneurial Strategies” and here is why: I truly believe that procrastination has hindered my success in business in the past more than any other contributing factor. And that hinderance affects other parts of my life as well.
And I have a feeling – especially after reading the book – that procrastination is a toughie for other entrepreneurs as well. I explain this more in the full article. I’ll definitely link to the article from my other sections of the site, because I feel it is so incredibly important.
I would rather not see others feel the pain of not completing something that they really COULD have completed.
Enough is enough. Let us all succeed. I always talk about taking action. Let’s take some together.
So, let’s move on. I now invite you to read my review and discussion of…
This guy’s little 6-year old started the day with “You know what would be great?” And he proceeded to tell everyone how great it would be to all pile into the car and go to breakfast before school and work.
Before you knew it, this little guy had everyone practically tasting the pancakes… And the parents, who previously wouldn’t have given it even the most remote consideration to such an idea on a school or work morning pretty soon had the kids in the car. Off they went for a fun breakfast.
Now, that particular essay has absolutely nothing to do with MY essay today. But, it inspired it. It inspired it by having me ask myself, “You know what would be great??”
Then, I thought of the cool things that would be great.
Along came a few more ideas… and then some more.
Well, one thing led to another, and I traced some “You know what would be great” ideas back to a different source. That of taking action.
So once again, I find myself on this topic! I hope you’ll join me over at You Know What Would Be Great? Another Essay On Taking Action here at the Entrepreneurial Strategies section of the site.
Now, you do not have to be an entrepreneur to get something out of this. I think that the words are true for any situation.
I hope you enjoy my latest thoughts – and please add your own when you’re done reading!
NOTE: Update on May 28, 2014 – I know this is an old post; however, I found a link that was no longer to a product that I would recommend; and therefore I have removed the content. I apologize for any inconvenience.
