Create A Strategy For Your Main Projects

#347 Create a strategy for my blog & career

What if you could become one of the big writers? One of the big influencers? How much would you be willing to sacrifice?

“I like to follow one rule. I never start anything that I’m not prepared to commit 5 years of my life to. That’s a long time frame, I know. But it gives me room to plan, to try and to measure what I’ve done.” — Jon Westenberg

Westenberg is one of the great writers on medium.com and he inspires many people. As Westenberg mentions, he only starts projects which he is willing to commit at least 5 years into.

What projects are you willing to commit at least 5 years into? Is it a blog? A YouTube channel? A business? Think about what your main project is. Perhaps you already know?

A blog is something which takes a lot of time. It takes a lot of time to write, edit, learn, evolve and keep going. Many people give up when nobody reads, and they feel that they don’t have anything to write.

Blogger

To be a blogger during a long time of period is a test. Sometimes you’re confident, other times you’re wondering what you’re doing. Is this the right thing for you?

What I’ve seen this far is how impactful a blog can be. How many people you can reach, how much you can learn and how good it feels to write about life. You get a bigger perspective about everything, and you feel better after writing a post.

It’s exciting to soon be able to celebrate one year as a blogger. I’ve learned a lot along the way, and I’m excited to soon be able to write a post once a week for example. In this way, I will be able to dig deeper into different subjects & write with much more quality.

Lessons

After a great day spent with good company, I decided to eventually sit down at a café for 4 hours. To write down a strategy for this blog, and how to continue with my career.

If you want to commit 5 years to a project, you better spend hours with writing your strategy. My intuition tells me it will most likely be worth it.

Your challenge

Sit down & create strategies to your main projects for the next five years.
