I’m going to take as my inspiration today, a post by a friend & coach, Wendy Ager, who did a very useful talk at my networking meeting yesterday, and then blogged about one of her points, “Knowledge is Power“, today.
It got me thinking about how much we forget we DO know… about life, the universe and techie things!
In mid-April, I blogged about getting called from someone in Brazil (yay SEO!), a potential client – well, I got the job, but have been challenged technically in several areas, as he wants the website to do things that I knew COULD be done … I just hadn’t done them before!
After my initial worry about whether I could do the job, I knuckled down, figured out what I knew about the things he wanted done, where I wanted to be, and who I could ask the right questions of. It did take time and persistence, but I now know
(a) how to use Custom posts in WordPress
(b) how to make the Nextgen Gallery plugin link to pages/posts not just images (thanks Adam Warner for the hints!)
(c) how to do video galleries using a YouTube playlist
and you know what?? It means I can increase the number of (chargeable) services I offer my clients!
So, if you’re facing something outside of your comfort zone, it does help to take stock of what you do know, and where you want to be … and then the gap in the middle can be filled with small steps until your goal is reached.
