Level Up Without the Boss Battle
You should never have to endure a boss battle in order to level up. Done right, the next level should flow nicely from where you are right now to your desired state without a jarring shift.⠀
Level Up Without the Boss Battle⠀
My buddy has been bugging me lately to buy a PlayStation 4. I haven’t done any gaming since before my kids were born and, as my daughter pointed out “When will you ever use it? You barely have time for anything else!”. I held steady for a few weeks and then gave in.
Let’s just say gaming has come a long way in the last decade and I spent the better part of a night reacquainting myself to this consuming pastime.
In the gaming world, every level has a climax – the crux, so to speak. It’s the hardest point in the level where most people who aren’t serious enough about the game will fail to progress. It’s usually the last big effort and requires lots and lots of skill. It’s called the boss battle and it’s HARD. You have to pass it to move on and level up.
Sound like your business?
That’s a pity.
You should never have to endure a boss battle in order to level up. Done right, the next level should flow nicely from where you are right now to your desired state without a jarring shift.
What puts us in that big, heated battle is an unrealistic perspective on where we should be with no regard for where we are now.
Leveling up is a gradual process and if you try and get to hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales before you’ve gotten to one thousand, you’re going to be in that big monster battle forever, because you think that you should be there, but there are actually 15 steps between here and there.
If you take each step at a time, you’ll be winning 15 times rather than feeling like you’re perpetually one move away from Game Over.
The best way to envision your path from here to there is to work backwards in congruence with your goal.
If your goal is financial, work backwards in bite sized revenue goals.
If your goal is lifestyle-y, envision the transitions you might make between.
When something seems too big and unwieldy, it probably is. Find the path through and focus on nearer term goals first.
