Experiment to find what works

I know that I want to write. I’ve been writing for a long time now. I’ve experimented with different ways of writing over the years, and to be honest with you, I’m still experimenting. I’m still trying to find what works for me.

The trail of blogs I’ve left in my wake over the years is evidence of that!

When you’re trying to work out what you really want to do, and even how you want to do it, you might have to experiment. You might have to explore different methods and techniques and styles until you find the method or technique or style that works for you.

There are many who are lucky enough to just know what works for them, and they try something the first time and it works for them beyond their wildest dreams! And then there’s the rest of us that are still trying to find it.

How will I know when I’ve found it?

For me, when I get a level of engagement from people who read my words that tells me I’m hitting the mark with them, then I’ll know. When people tell me they want more of my writing, I’ll know I’ve found a style that works for me.

If there’s something you really want to do, that you’re passionate about, then just do it. Keep on doing it. Don’t let anyone stop you. Don’t even let yourself stop you!

If you want to achieve a level of success with it, you’ll just need to keep doing it. Try different ways of doing it, and don’t be afraid to change the way you’re doing it if you’re not getting the results you want from it.

Too many people get stuck with just one way of doing things, and they keep doing that until they get burnt out and they leave it behind. It didn’t work, why bother continuing with it?

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein

If you want a different result with what you’re doing, then do it a different way.

And remember – the only way you’ll fail is if you give up and quit.  Keep doing what you enjoy doing, and eventually you’ll find the way that gives you the results you’re looking for.
