Are You Guilty of This?!


How many times have you waited until everything was perfect (or so you thought) before publishing your first blog post? Or, opening up an e-commerce store? Or, any other situation where you felt that things had to be perfect before you were ready to FIRE! and get 'er done?

I am as guilty as the next person EVEN though my philosophy is: READY. FIRE. AIM.   My belief is to get things ready [ready], then put things into place [fire], and then make the changes, advances, adaptations, deletions/additions [aim] as I acquire new knowledge, more expertise and awareness of what is expected.

I followed this philosophy [READY. FIRE. AIM.] when I created my website, but did not follow it when it came to my blog.

I continue to make changes [aim] to my website over time, adapting as I go.  Most of the changes I make to my site are the addition of free, downloadable, printable puzzles.  Others are required changes due to compliance, as evidenced by last year's (2018) GDPR expectation for website owners.

If that philosophy worked with my website, I decided to make it work for my blog!  And, here you have it!  I was ready, I fired, and's time to get the aim more aligned with how I see this blog evolving.

This is what the blog looks like before I hit the publish button:

learn with puzzles
Learning With Puzzles blog before the first post!

Not very pretty, I know. BUT, the point is I 'fired' after I got ready.

Did you know?

Did you know that airplanes are off course 99% of the time of their journey, between their point of origin and the final destination?  It's the small tweaking, or re-aligning back to the flight path, that lands them at the destination airport (all other things being equal, of course!). 

Next Steps

The evolution of this blog, Learning With Puzzles, will model the flight plan of an airplane (constant realigning to keep on course).  Now that this first blog post is nanoseconds away from being published, moving forward I can work on deciding colors, navigation, widgets, pictures, and the plethora of other things that are awaiting my attention! [AIM].

Next planned blog post 

What Is A Puzzle?


How do you approach the projects that you want to accomplish?
