“Did you ever have to make up your mind?
Take the one you want and leave the other one behind?
It’s not often easy, it’s not often kind.
Did you ever have to make up your mind?”

I am faced with a fundamental shift in how I present my online business. The evidence and reasons for making a change are very compelling, it should be a ‘no brainer’. Do it…do it right now! Just make up your mind.
Here’s the rub. I have been infected with the largest known inhibitor to growth and change. Success.
What I do, how I do it, is working.
How do I walk away from what is working and take a path that is theoretical at best? Why would I even consider such a step?

“Get in line, stay in line.” Thanks Jon Olson, I’m a big believer. What if I can see the (front) end of the line, and it’s not quite where I am headed?
“Make your choice and go all in” Well, yeah. I buy that too.
“Make up your mind.”
“You know you better Make up Your Mind”
What I want, where I am going, and how I am getting there are in conflict right now. I have mind mapped, I have meditated, I have thought extensively about where and how to go. I have read more than 20,000 words. The simple act of writing this out has helped me immensely.
The whole truth is, I HAVE made up my mind. The winds of change are blowing through my mind. Blowing hard, with all the possibility and excitement that can bring.
Now I just have to convince my heart and my gut that the brain is right, this time.
Not an easy task.
I’m just sayin’
