Have you found yourself thinking that if you just knew what to do to build/grow your practice (or open the store, or write the book, or…), you’d go out and do it?

Here’s one big thing I’ve learned: no one knows what they’re doing.

There isn’t an instruction manual or a “right” way to grow your practice.

Everyone is making things up as they go. I know it doesn’t seem like it, but it’s true.

If you wait until you know exactly how to do the thing you’re hoping to do, you may never get to it.

Think about what might work, and give it a try.

Sometimes you’ll be right. Sometimes you’ll be wrong.

Either way, you’ll learn something.

If you want to hear me elaborate on this a bit, check out my latest podcast episode: No one knows what they’re doing.

Keep going.

Take care,
