My mind was blowing with various questions while I was thinking about my next blog post.. what should I start writing? how to be consistent in blogging? which topic should I select after six months long gap being in one of the top trending businesses Online?…etc..
While I was in this random situation I got an idea that had enforced me to work out on certain things. I believe that these things will remain as benchmarks to ones’ SUCCESS in Business and Life. And here I would like to share with you those simple, promising and deciding factors.
Well, the first thing is:
In my scenario, I have found that I stopped blogging due to these:
1) Sufficient Income or I was Idle/Lazy or You call whatever you want
In some way or the other, people would stop working innovating in their fields when they feel they are secured or when they are into the motto of living by a customized way of life. Ever since I had entered into the comfort zone of working from home with sufficient earnings per month, I had become lazy sharing and helping my expertises through this blog.
2) Inefficient to Manage Internet/Social Media Addiction and Presence
I need not bet or argue more about today’s Internet or Social media addiction because I think most of you should have already knew about it. However, I think most of you might not realize that you are inefficiently working with your Internet or social media networks just as I was doing.
In general I stay close to 24/7 online doing various things like assisting my clients (though it isn’t a hurdle at all), watching videos, reading news, explore Facebook, Twitter etc..
Even though my knowledge gained through this habit of exploring Internet had been shared to social networks (via updates/tweets), applied to my clients’ works, I realized that it was all merely a part of what I could actually do to progress my business. (Please note, my point is not to communicate that blogging is the only way for you to uplift your business or it will bring 100% recognition but the inefficiency to manage Social media or whatever Online Presence (website, SEO, PPC) you have and the TIME, will impact your Business and Life than what you think.)
Back to the point, How did I find this?
When I monitored all the reports (site analytics, sales, accounts etc…) of my business in this idle period, I had found that my business was in NO Gain or No Loss.
But these are not the stats I am concerned about. It’s all about how far my knowledge is been efficiently utilized and how much recognition my business is getting/winning in the competition?!
So, what did I decide finally?
Being an Internet marketer especially from SEO industry, I knew pretty well that a blog is one of the perfect ways to reach your audience on regular base and it equally helps bring potential traffic to your services. I also knew that once your blog is kept idle for a period, say for several months, just like as I did, you will lose all blogging benefits like: No people or No Search engine traffic and several other cons for not blogging!
Despite knowing these facts I had never taken proper Action until I have realized that we or our businesses are not created to be idle and if we just keep them as it (Business/Life) goes, it is merely the death for your Business as well as your Life because I believe that is not how our Life/Business has to be.
So I have decided to always stay conscious and take action and get myself and my business be unique and outstand the competition !
It’s just that SIMPLE and as simple as a mere TRUTH.

Conclusion: Idleness and Inefficiency are the two biggest Death Knells for You and for Your Business. Stay conscious and Take Action.
