Great Creations Need To Be Shown Off
When you buy an iPod, do you hide it in your pocket? No! you show it to friends.
Steve believed that all great creations have to be shown to the world. No matter how great the product is, if people do not know about it, it is next to nothing. Its value is zero, nothing, zip, nada!
Just put “blog post” in place of “product” in last sentence. Get my point?
If you do not publish your posts and keep spending time on them to make them better, no one will ever come to know about them. And if no one knows about your blog, what is the purpose of blogging?
Go out, show off your posts. Publish them.
Procrastination Is A Habit
Once you start finding excuses to say no to publishing, you will be on a downward roller coaster. Roller coaster of procrastination.
You will keep telling yourself, “Nah, this post is not good. Let me work on it and publish tomorrow.”
And when it comes to tomorrow, we have a famous quote:
There is no tomorrow.
There really is! Once you put work on tomorrow, this cycle will go on and on. Soon, you will find putting yourself everything on tomorrow and it is very hard to recover from that point!
Do not make procrastination your habit. Publish!
Everyone Makes Mistakes
One major reason that stops people from publishing is the fear of making mistakes. If you are also afraid of making mistakes, I won’t say anything. No advice. Just a few questions:
- Will your readers hate you for a typo?
- Will all your readers unsubscribe when you do not spell something correctly?
- Or worst, will Interpol add you to International Wanted list you for incorrect grammar?
If any answer was yes, then please leave and spend time on perfecting your posts instead of publishing, this post is not for you.
However, if all the answers were no, then remember that mistakes can help grow your blog. And if you do not make mistakes, how will you learn?
Nothing Is Perfect
You can make a post awesome by adding a little bit of extra effort.
No, my friend! There’s nothing perfect in this world.
Improvements can, well, improve you post. But sometimes, there will be a tiny little typo that will be hide itself so well that even your experienced eyes will fail to find it. If you are looking to write perfect posts, then I am sure you will be able to. But I wonder if you will be able to publish more than once a month in that case. Solution? Publish!
