Compared and Confused
This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
I’m an attorney. I’ve been comparing myself a lot with other attorneys out there who focus in my area.
I feel like I’m getting down on myself because I’m not doing the 10 things they’re doing. I’m thinking, “Well, these other attorneys are all offering templates, they have podcasts, etc.”
How do I know what is good to look at — in terms of generating good ideas and figuring out what works for me? — versus getting caught up in the comparison game?
The consumer response will tell you how good an idea is.
The best advice is to stay in your own unique authenticity.
As you try things, look at the responses you get and carefully track data.
With social media, podcasts, and the like, there are two things people are consuming on there:
One is information, the other is entertainment.
Bring your unique, authentic personality to it and decide what is your strength — is it to inform? And can you do it in an entertaining way or not?
Know what your strength is, double down on it, and play with it.
It’s interesting because it causes us to have to break through vulnerabilities that business people typically didn’t have to break through before.
You have to determine whether or not you’re good at a particular activity. And if you’re not good at it, then you have to find out what mode of communication via those vehicles you can be good at.
Is it writing? Speaking? Video? And then you take it from there.
Just see how people respond to different things.
That’s all that matters — how people respond.
If they’re not responding, then you’ve got to switch something up and start testing different things until you get them to respond.
It does require that you think about what you’re doing, what your message is, and what kind of response you’re looking to get with the people you’re trying to reach.
