My website went LIVE officially yesterday and as excited as I am about this, there are some really important things I learnt during the process.
I started learning about websites when my mentor Elisha Mamman gave me the opportunity.
Today I’m glad this is out and these are some lessons I learnt in the process:
1. NOTHING STARTS UNTIL YOU START.
This is not the time I thought I’ll be launching my website.
I had learnt web design and improved on it consistently for over 2 years and at every improvement, I wanted to build my own site.
I actually had great confidence that it’ll be launched in January this year but that didn’t work out either.
I remember watching a video where John Obidi was listing the things everyone should do to “take their brand global in 2019″
The first thing he mentioned was “have a website” and I was so motivated to start the very next day.
Well, I didn’t start the next day… So here we are.
Nothing starts until you start.
2. EVERYTHING GOOD TAKES TIME.
It took a over a month to finish up the design process, but guess what?
I had planned to finish building in 10 days.
The plan was possible but I didn’t take the many other things I needed to do into consideration.
I was also going to record a course for people that want to easily build their own personal or business websites without code… This takes time.
The course is ready now, and my website is too.
Everything good takes time… But your MASTERY can reduce the time it takes.
3. NOTHING CAN BE TRULY PERFECT, EXCEPT YOUR SPIRIT.
After my website launch, I was on standby making corrections that very few people noticed.
A form I had created had a recaptcha issue I needed to fix.
I changed the language structure in some places to help with clarity.
I listened to feedback, analysed them and made modifications where necessary.
Nothing created can be perfect. You can only do your most excellent best, improve your best, and do it again.
In 5 years, the website may be totally different from what it is right now.
So why not start what you want to start?
4. IF YOU CAN THINK IT, IT CAN BE DONE.
Read this part to the end so you don’t take the title and hurt yourself.
I have never seen a website launch event, but for some reason, that was what I wanted.
Like a virtual party to launch the site.
So I designed a flyer for it.
I started a countdown on the site for it.
And when it got to the date, I had a launch event on Facebook live.
If you can think it, it can be done…
But that is not the complete statement.
If you can think it, it can be done… But it will not be done until you do it.
Also, the fact that you do it does not guarantee that it’ll bring the results you were expecting.
The thought process is just the first part. Don’t stop at the first part.
I’m excited that the website and my course on web design are both ready now and if there’s anything I’ll like to share with you, it is this:
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.
To your continued Digital Productivity,
