Controversy is inevitable. When controversy comes up, we must choose a side. This is when we weigh the pros and cons. However, when we weigh the pros and cons, that takes up a lot of time.
Imagine writing a list of pros and cons for 30 minutes. Writing that list of pros and cons took up time you could have used doing something else. You could have been scheduling social media updates or taking a break from your business.
Writing down and even thinking about the pros and cons takes up time. Time is a valuable resource, and when you write down or think of the pros and cons, you’re wasting more time.
The pros and cons will be necessary for some controversial topics. Pros and cons are necessary when deciding between being a Republican or Democrat. However, if you’re weighing the pros and cons for something related to your niche or business that you can do yourself, weighing the pros and cons is just a con.
The blog post before this was about blogging frequency. You can either blog daily or weekly. You can weigh the pros and cons all you want. However, you won’t know much about blogging frequency unless you give something a try.
Writing a list of your goals is a great idea. Writing a list of pros and cons is not a great idea. That takes up time. The time you lose from writing your pros and cons could have been spent actually testing out the idea. Instead of writing a list of the pros and cons of blogging daily and weekly, you can actually write blog posts and see what you ideal frequency is. Do you write really long blog posts that take days to complete or can you publish a blog post every day?
You already asked the question. Writing a list of pros and cons isn’t the answer. You’re still stuck with the question. You didn’t question the question either. The only way to answer the question is to actually take action. You can ask yourself if you’re good enough to upload videos to YouTube. The only way you will know if you are good enough is by recording videos of yourself.
Don’t list the pros and cons. Make a quick decision and implement it. If it doesn’t work, or you feel like you can do more, make the change. Don’t overwhelm yourself with giant lists. Instead, just focus on starting and doing.
