So you may or may not know, but I have a not so little project I’m working on called Kilotus. My fiancé’s not sold on the name, but we’ll see how that goes. I already invested in the domain so I have to do something with it in the meantime, right?
Anywho, I have had ideas for projects and businesses plenty of times before and I failed countless times. Well, I suppose I could count the number of times, but I don’t want to depress myself. This time around, I actually know there’s no way procrastination, lack of focus, or anything else will successfully obstruct my path. But there are some obstacles I simply can’t hurdle alone. This is where I plan on investing in my progress.
One thing that never fails in any project I do alone or with other people is this tendency to take on all work. This includes areas where the people involved aren’t actually proficient. For example, I’m an idea guy all day, but I’ve never been all that great at marketing. In the past, I would fumble around making my best efforts to play a role for which I wasn’t suited and, eventually, I’d stop making progress altogether.
I always had ideas for things that extended past areas where my talents can be best used. Because I won’t fail this time around, I decided to put a little cash toward getting some assistance.
I technically have an employee, y’all!
Fallon Chan was always going to be a part of the Kilotus (name pending) family, but having her as my backup is going to be key to my success (show her some love by checking out her photography blog). Because this is early on, I can rely on her for very specific tasks that are vital to my progress, but small enough to fall through the cracks if I’m not able to properly tend to them.
Social media, I’m looking at you.
This might be common sense to people who have made it further than me, but I’ve worked with enough people to know that I’m not the only person out there who failed at something because they shouldered all the work. I’m sure there are crazy people out there that can pull that off, but I’m not up for that challenge. I’d rather better my progress by putting money toward its improvement. Efficiency FTW.
Make sense? Great!
Now, get to work, Fallon.
