It’s been year and a half since I’ve published a post here. I always talk about “how important it is to take action“.

But in most cases, taking action is not enough. Consistency & persistency are two extremely important factors for success.

Since my last post, I’ve attempted to write a new post for so many times. I’ve left some of them as draft, and simply deleted the rest.

What was it from taking me writing a new blog post?

Writer’s block?

Lack of interest?

or many more other excuses…

While I was thinking about these reasons and trying to find an excuse for not updating my blog, a great post by Seth Godin came to rescue and answered all the questions in my mind.

I wasn’t updating my blog, because I was afraid of SHIPPING.

Most of the posts I’ve written wasn’t good enough for me to publish (I’m the toughest critique of myself). Sometimes, it just didn’t feel right after I’d complete writing a post. In some cases, I thought the post was too long, and never took the time to work on it.

Seth Godin’s workbook on Amazon – The ShipIt Journal

From now on, I will be SHIPPING it…

I won’t care if a post I’ve written is too short or too long.

I will hit publish before reading it through 10 times.

I won’t be mad at myself when I find out several misspelled words after publishing a post.

Whether it’s a website you’ve been planning to launch, or a project you wish you’ve completed long time ago, or even your personal blog you’ve been thinking about updating for a long time, it’s time to ship.

Forget about getting the perfect product out of the door. Simply ship what you have.

It’s time to ship & thanks to Seth Godin for reminding it to us…

Hey Kirtok,

Long time since your last post. From time to time I had access to some of your oldies for reference.

I´m happy to hear from you again.

Keep Shipping it! :-)

This is the point: “Forget about getting the perfect product out of the door. Simply ship what you have.”

btw, good luck, you’ll need it :)

Hi Mr Kirtok,

Once I heard the following;

If You’re Not Embarrassed When You ship Your First Version, You Waited Too Long…

So, no need to wait to get the perfect, ultimate outcome..just ship it..Thanks for posting…
