Who dictates what will happen
today or tomorrow when it comes to your book marketing?
Is it planned out or do you act out of spontaneity? Do you set goals and map out an agenda, or is your game plan reactionary to circumstances that arise? How much do you initiate and seek out opportunities — and how much of what you do is merely reactive?
You know what the answers should be, don’t you?
Take ownership for your book marketing. You dictate your success. You choose what happens to your book. You control your fate.
Here is what you will do to market your book today: Something. Know that much, whatever it may be. Something. Not nothing. What will it be? That depends on what needs to be done and what you are capable of doing.
Make a plan: for the long-term, short-term, and today. Outline your goals, identify the specific steps and timeline needed to achieve them, and commit to executing this plan. You can alter it, evaluate progress, and even expand on your ambitions. But have a plan, always.
Evaluate your resources: time, money, connections, knowledge, skills, and opportunities. Build around your strengths. It is time to do something, not apologize, make excuses, or try half-heartedly. Act!
Maybe today you explore new areas, new ways to get things done, and new people and resources to enlist in your efforts. Perhaps you use today to experiment, take a risk, supersize efforts, or place new bets. This could be a day of change or consistency, but it will be a day of action. Do something. Always.
