SLOW GROWING

Written by Sharon Dalton Williams


Today we live in a world of speed. Technological advancements have made obtaining what we want as simple as pushing a button.

We don't have to wait long to eat - just poprepparttar food intorepparttar 117782 microwave and click start. In minutes we have a full meal.

We don't have to wait weeks for communication back and forth - just type and clickrepparttar 117783 send button in e-mail. In seconds, information is sent and received.

Because of this "instant" mentality we have grown accustomed to, we as a society have come to believe that if we can't get what we want in a matter of minutes, it's not worth having. Waiting is becoming a thing ofrepparttar 117784 past.

I have found this to be especially true when it comes to internet businesses. Because everything is available atrepparttar 117785 click of a mouse, slowly growing an internet business never enters our minds. We try to findrepparttar 117786 quickest and easiest route torepparttar 117787 automatic $5,000 per month promised to us at every turn.

Without careful thought, we plunge into several affiliate programs (sometimes unrelated to each other), throw up some free websites, blast our "open for business" announcement to 4,000,000 people, and then sit back waiting for all 4,000,000 to beat a path to our electronic doorway.

We watchrepparttar 117788 calendar, and when, in 7 days, we haven't made our $1,500 or we run into technological difficulties, we throw up our hands in disgust, claiming thatrepparttar 117789 entire internet is a hoax, and walk away.

Let's pause for a moment and take a look atrepparttar 117790 weed andrepparttar 117791 oak. John and Jim are young, newly married, and have just moved in next door to each other. Both yards need work in order to gainrepparttar 117792 "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval."

John runs out torepparttar 117793 local nursery, buys a bunch of seeds, never really paying attention torepparttar 117794 type of seeds or to their care requirements. He goes home, spreads his seeds all over his yard, and then sits back waiting forrepparttar 117795 lush, beautiful lawn. It isn't long before his yard is covered with weeds. The weeds quickly spring up and then die underrepparttar 117796 heat ofrepparttar 117797 sun. His yard is full of dirt holes.

Piddle with your web pages by changingrepparttar 117783 look. Do this often!

If you do, FTPrepparttar 117784 changes up to your ISP or hosting site. It causesrepparttar 117785 search engine robots to come crawling through your site more often.
