I am well aware that I talked about quick action very recently, but I had a moment of very quick action yesterday which I think a lot of people would be interested in. Yesterday started out as a normal day–I got to school at around 8, finished track at around 4:30, and stayed for a while talking to friends, doing homework, and watching a volleyball game in the gym. On our way home, the sky looked innocent, but as we drove farther, a storm was catching up to us. I knew I would get home safely, but I also heard about thunder and lightning which to me is no fun to be in. Not only that, but I feared that the bad weather would take out the connection I had to the internet which would lead to no tweets and no blog posts for this blog and my other blog as well. I got home and ran right up to do my work. I scheduled tweets and blog posts for two of my blogs (including this one). I saw lightning and heard the thunder as I typed, but since this blog post is very long, everything turned out to be okay. Waiting 30 minutes to do my work (eating, shower, etc.) would have resulted in me risking losing the internet and the ability to write more content.
If you can perform a quick action in the perfect timing, your business will thrive. Stock investors know this very well. Investing in the right stocks at the right time will lead to a bigger profit. Investing in something too late will result in a smaller profit or no profit at all.
Blogs work the same way. If you find a product that is selling, you keep on talking about that individual product through blog posts. If you find a product that has potential, you can offer a small discount for a limited time. When the price goes back up, more people will buy it since they liked it the first time.
Making eBooks is the same as well. If your eBook is very successful, everyone will want a Part 2. You have to be able to make the eBook quickly if you want to get even more sales on the old and new eBooks alike. Then you have to keep on making them.
How did I get the idea for this post? On one of my track meets, I did the quick action, but I had poor timing. I still had a good time, but it could have been better. Timing is crucial, but the actions that are performed in a specific amount of time are just as crucial.
