The myth of massive action

Do you ever listen to all the advice and information out there, and wonder what’s wrong with you?

(I’m not saying anything’s wrong with you – bear with me here)

It’s okay to be a tortoise – slow and steady towards your goals.

Because I do.

Aside from all the shiny bullshitty “guru” stuff, I look at all these people shouting about “taking massive action” and it makes me want to hide in a den with a cup of tea and some cake.

And what’s worse is: I’ve been known to advocate “taking massive action”, too. I’ve actually done the “massive action” thing.

On occasion, it can and does work.

But what I’ve discovered over the past few months is this: progress is made through a series of tiny actions. Consistent, everyday, small movements.

Slow and steady wins the race. Like the tortoise. Small steps get you towards your goal, and they’re much less scary and more do-able than massive action. Right?

Right. Speaking of goals… Why not make your latest goal reading my book, Business For Superheroes. 

Here’s what Jim Distortion had to say about it:

I was looking for a non jargon filled bible for business and i found it!

Quick and easy to read, to the point and there is nothing you cant try out very quickly and easily for yourself.

Ive actually done two sets of adverts and a landing page that have both worked very well from Vicky’s advice. It also seems she really is there on the end of an email for her customers so it doesnt just stop with her books.

As someone who needed help for marketing and copy writing I  found it here.

If you need a marketing bible get yours now it arrives very quickly.



Vicky Fraser is a copywriter, author, and entrepreneur. She really did run away with the circus… but when she’s not swinging from a trapeze, she’s showing other copywriters and small business owners how to work with better clients, make more money, and stop missing bathtimes, first words, and dinners with angry partners. In fact, she wrote the book on it. Get your copy here.

PS I’ve had a bloody marvellous few days away camping on Anglesey with a large pile of Frasers. Well, I’m writing this before I go, but I’m almost certain I’ve had a bloody marvellous few days because I always do when I’m camping. And all the Frasers are fun. Especially my Fraser. I know I’m gonna feel recharged, and it’ll carry me through until September when we’re going on our real hollibobs. Hurrah!

I do hope you’ve had a productive few days. And by that, I mean I hope you’ve spent some time chilling. On your own. And with your lovvies. Peace out.
