No handbook

I’ve been pretty preoccupied this last week, which is why I’ve only just posted this blog.

I haven’t been twiddling my thumbs though – I’ve been super busy with Wroxham Week – a fantastic sailing event organised by Norfolk Broads Yacht Club at Wroxham Broad.

It’s been all go, and we’ve had a fabulous time.

But it hasn’t been super easy – there’s been lots of learning on the fly.

You see, I’ve just recently been asked to stand-in as Rear Commodore of the club, and I’ll be honest, that’s pushed me way out of my comfort zone. But one week on, with the support of a great bunch of people, I’m beginning to feel a lot more comfortable about things.

And that’s my little point for today really: sometimes we need to push ourselves out of our comfort zone, there’s no step-by-step guide, no ABC to follow, no handbook.

A bit like being a business owner.

It’s just you and your instinct.

Sure, we can prepare, and yes, we should ensure that our preparation is adequate.

But with most things in life, you truly learn by doing.

You’ll make mistakes, you’ll get things wrong, but you’ll learn from it all; the good and the bad.

So many businesses are paralysed into inactivity by fear, but that paralysis won’t get you from A to B quickly.

I encourage you, wherever you’re at in your business: just give it a go.

Even if it goes wrong, even if a campaign flops, you’ll learn something from it, and be better next time.

By the way. If you’re ever in the area and would like to find out more about Norfolk Broads Yacht Club, just drop me an email and I’ll happily show you around!
