7 obstacles that prevent you from publishing articles frequently

Hello reader friend.

As you know, I work in multiple occupations: I work as a consultant and developer of various Web projects (own and others), I am a Freelancer, I work in Forex, I am a Photographer of Microstock, Community Manager and I write articles sharing my knowledge and experiences through diverse Online platforms. Among so many activities, I have detected that my "Achilles heel" when publishing articles, is often the frequency with which I do it. 

As I have noticed that it is not something that happens to me nothing more, but rather to be an issue inherent in all Online Entrepreneurs today, I have done a thorough analysis, and I think I have given the causes of such a situation. The following are the obstacles that prevent the publication of articles frequently and give recommendations for each of them:

 

1- Lack of time:
Yes, I know that the day has 24 hours for everyone, but if you do not organize your time or you dedicate to an excess of activities, you can take the time to do them all efficiently. 

Recommendations: Organize your activities according to the number of daily hours you work and strictly follow what is planned. Propose to write an article daily (or weekly) and make it to "rajatabla" (ie without fail). Do not let the Sun, the rain, the Thunder (or anything in this world) prevent you from fulfilling what you have established as your goal.  

 

2- Lack of ideas:
If you have a momentary mental drought or a sudden lack of ideas, do not worry and relax a bit, because sometimes, mentally pressing you to try to generate ideas makes everything more difficult. Realize that ideas and knowledge are still within you, but you should only inspire a little and not mentally torture, so that they can come out afloat. Recommendation: I advise in such cases, to put the mind in other things, that is to say, to take a walk, to go out with the family, to see a movie, to read a book, to hear some music, etc. Anything so long as ideas come back to you naturally and effortlessly.

 

3- Excess of ideas:
Exactly the opposite to the previous point is that, sometimes, we seem to be so full of ideas to develop our articles, that we do not find where to begin. Recommendation: Go shaping all the ideas that occur in a notebook, so that we can then structure, categorize and develop our posts.

4- Noise:
If you work in a very noisy environment, it is normal for you to have problems coordinating your ideas when writing, and therefore reducing the amount (and quality) of content you produce. Excessive noise is often a factor that prevents you from developing articles. Recommendations: In this sense, there are only three recommendations: 1- Eliminate the noise (or source of the same), 2- Change the place where you are working for a more peaceful and quiet, or 3- Get used to working in a bustling environment.

5- Lack of lighting:
As problematic as excessive noise, so is poor lighting when we develop or compose our posts. It is scientifically proven that poor lighting (in addition to the visual problems it generates) reduces overall productivity. Recommendation: Increase or improve light sources when you are composing your content.

6- Not knowing (or not wanting) to delegate:
If (for any reason) time is not enough for you to write your articles, but you do not know (or do not want) to delegate, then let me tell you that you have a coordination problem and you are wasting a magnificent opportunity to write more quality content in the way. Recommendation : If you have a team of people who work for you and can help you in the task of writing posts, take advantage of it. If you do not want to write articles directly, put them to express ideas about the themes you develop, have them investigate for you what you are not very clear about everything that you talk about in your posts, or get them to do activities that you have to do Meet and take time to write your articles. Just do not stay in the device, Use the resources you have to bring out more quality articles. And if you do not have a work team, but you can hire Freelancers to help you write articles, do not hesitate to do so.

7- Being too perfectionist and demanding:
When we develop an activity with passion, we often become too demanding and perfectionistic towards ourselves about it. If you want to write articles more frequently, it is okay to worry about the quality of them, but not to the point of creating a mental block that does not let you write or translate your ideas once and for all. If you (like me) write an article, you check it at least ten times before and after publishing it, and you correct errors and details along the way, so let me tell you that you have a problem (we have a problem … lol). Recommendations: Realize that your ideas are valuable and you should translate them in the best way possible in your articles, but nobody is perfect, and no matter how much you strive to write the "

Before all the recommendations given, you may be thinking " Doctor cure yourself … " And that's exactly what I'm going to do, hehe. Since I have already identified the causes that prevent more frequent publication of articles, I will take into account my own recommendations to solve this situation.

 

And you? … Do you know of any other obstacle or factor that prevents writing articles more frequently? …

 

Until next time!

Innovation starts with your users…

The best advice I ever received when I was looking to start a consulting business was this:

“To guarantee success, find a need and fill it.”

There is no value in creating products or services for which there is no need. On occasion, an organization will come up with a game-changing product and redefine a whole industry, such as RIM in the early days, replacing pagers with email anywhere, and Apple with its iPhone and iPad, which brought smart devices to the masses. But, for the most part, the businesses that thrive are those who have mastered the ability to identify a need and fulfill it.

It is evident that they excel at anticipating what their customers would need, and when. They have essentially put themselves in the place of the user, and walked through what a successful experience would be. Interacting with these organizations is uncannily intuitive. The website is informative, expectations are clearly defined, there are no unpleasant surprises, and if it is a product, you could likely hand it to a child and they would be able to figure out how to get started.

As you read this, I’m sure you are remembering your own experiences in dealing with companies offering this type of product or service. This may be anything from the great little restaurant you frequent or the car dealer you have bought a second or third vehicle from because you loved the service.

But not all businesses are thriving.

There are far too many companies, service organizations, and manufacturers more concerned with numbers, and specifically how high can their sale numbers reach in the next quarter, than they are with the experience of their customers in interacting with their products.

No one will deny that Apple has made a huge impact with the iPad. Even if you are not an Apple fan, you can’t deny the device is simple to use. I can hand mine to a 3-year old and she will flick and swipe at the screen like a pro to find her games and books.

I got an iPad for my parents (who are in their eighties). A week later, they wanted to buy a second one so they don’t fight over who gets to use it. These devices have opened up a whole new world of opportunity and discovery from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy recliners.

And the best part (for me), I have barely spent mere moments providing them with tech support. When you consider that I’ve had to help them with setting up almost every other device (i.e. their first computer, programming numbers into phones, setting up HD television, replacing the 8-track player with an iPod) this is almost a miracle.

In my role as a CIO, I get to preview and try a lot of different devices, software applications, and computer hardware. I admit that much of what I see leaves me underwhelmed, like the array of slate devices that have come my way recently.
I also know that I would never, ever recommend that my parents use one of these other slate devices.

The iPad comes with the Apple ecosystem. The iPad, while intuitive to use, is like celery – designed to move the dip (or in this case the experience) from the bowl to your mouth. A lot of the other devices are like celery without the dip. The experience runs out of steam pretty quickly.

I am remiss to quote yet another saying by Steve Jobs, but the following is fitting of the streamlined user experience and device capabilities of the iPad:

“You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backwards for the technology.” (WWDC 1997)

So what can an IT leader learn from this?

It would seem that many of us in IT leadership missed the class on customer experience:

We have a service catalogue but have never defined what a successful experience would look like.
We ask our users to use products and services that we ourselves would never incorporate into our own department.
We launch new technology initiatives without ever consulting the people who will actually have to use the new system.
We get defensive when we are questioned about missing functionality or dismissive when new features are suggested that we didn’t think of.
And on and on…
It doesn’t sound very nice to be a customer of this type of an IT department but, unfortunately, many of our users have these experiences daily.

What is different though is that given the influx of personal devices and cloud- based applications and services, our users now have a choice. For example, marketing departments can set up a contract with SalesForce.com and completely end run your department.

Don’t think it isn’t happening, or won’t happen to you, so let me suggest something:

It’s time to change the way IT is done in your organization.

Dust off your service catalogue; sit down with your team. Take each of these services and discuss what a successful user experience would look like. It’s not about what’s most convenient for your team, but what would make the user experience the best it could possibly be. Talk about how you are going to make it happen. Then do it.

If you start at the end, you are leveraging proven wisdom for running a successful organization.

I'm convinced that IT leadership needs to dramatically change how IT is delivered rather than being relegated to a costly overhead department.

In addition to transforming IT in my role as CIO, I look for every opportunity to talk about this… writing, speaking and now blogging on BeBee (www.bebee.com/@kevin-pashuk) , LinkedIn, ITWorld Canada, or at TurningTechInvisible.com.
