Last Friday I tried to do a blog where I used wordless diagrams.
Spoiler alert: I am not particularly artistic, not good with graphics on computers. If a template is premade, I’m fine, but outside of that…not so good.
So I spent time trying to work on the boxes.
But I got so caught up on making the boxes, I forgot what the point of my blog was. I got curtailed by the minutia, and thus completely missed highlighting the point I was trying to get across.
Here’s the lesson…
It’s easy to think about what you want the end result of something to be.
It is very hard to figure out all the steps that go into getting the desired result.
We sometimes choose to focus on the wrong things, and forget to pay attention to the basics. The basics, the nuts and bolts of how something is done aren’t sexy. They’re boring.
But without a proper plan, attention paid to the building block steps, you can’t reach your goal.
For my post, it was mild embarrassment that I screwed up. Some of my blog friends got a laugh. But it was only a post and something that I laughed about as soon as I realized my mistakes…
But there are other things in life that can be really bad if we don’t pay attention to the details…
All parts of a plan are important.
