People continue to submit great lessons learned for the group writing project, where we ask (and answer!) the question, “What Did You Learn in 2006?”
Here’s some of the latest submissions:
- Char discovered the power of the blogging community. She has a great example of WordPress guru Lorelle finding her (as opposed to Char knowing about Lorelle) when Char had a WordPress issue and posted about it on her blog. People are out there, looking, willing to help. It’s a great lesson for the more cynical among us.
- Andrew learned that the perfect job will find you. He’s got some great advice, “Work hard, but have trust too.” Whether that trust is in the divine, yourself, something else or a combination thereof, having a little faith doesn’t hurt.
- Curly is going through “entrepreneurship pains” (You’re not alone!), and learning a ton while she teaches herself entrepreneurship. As she says, “If an idea flames out, make flambe.” Her stress, confusion and learning curve are nothing new. You’ll most likely find yourself nodding when you read what she’s learned, and you’ll be cheering her on.
- Vernon Lun has his own amazing lessons learned as a new entrepreneur starting TheGoodBlogs. Vernon’s focus is on how to build communities, but his advice applies to any entrepreneur starting a business.
- Erica Douglas sums up what she’s learned very nicely with 10 Things I Learned This Year. I think #1 on her list is about as clear and poignant as you can get, “Childbirth will happen when the baby is ready, not when you are ready.”
- Write a post on your blog about what you learned in 2006.
- Link back to Instigator Blog and email me.
- You could win some great prizes.
- And I’ll donate $5 to charity for every post you write.
Thank you to everyone who has participated so far!
