Growing your business - are you committed or just interested

I saw a post on Instagram last week explaining the difference between being committed to something or just interested in it. The idea applies to anything including your business.

Everyone has ideas for what they'd like to do if they started their own business or if they already have but want to grow it.

The difference between being committed and just being interested is in your actions. If you are committed you start, you work, you toil, you commit. If you are just interested you think, you talk you dream. You might even organize some meetings with people to discuss your big "idea" but you don't act.

The post reminded me of how long it took me to start building my software business Training Tilt. I think I had the idea about five or six years ago when I was in my early thirties. But that was just this specific idea, I'd been interested in building some sort of software for about another five years before that.

Even after I finally got started on my idea I still wasn't really committed to it. I did some sporadic work on building the software in my spare time with no real plans or goals. I was really interested in it but I definitely wasn't committed.

Being interested in something really isn't enough to create anything of much value.

At some stage and I really don't recall when, things changed. I went from thinking about it once in a while to thinking about it every day. At some point I went from working on the code every other weekend to working on it every morning from 4am before training then my day job then a few hours before bed. I was border line obsessed with it.

But even then when I was working really hard on the software I wasn't putting any work into the business and how I was going to make it work financially. But then at some point that changed too, mainly out of necessity as I'd put in so many hours that would have just gone to waste if no-one ended up using the software.

And even now there is still so much work to do to grow the business where it needs to be.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that it's a process and being committed doesn't always happen straight away and it's ok to just be interested in something for a while. To get what you really want though at some point you have to cross over from just being interested to being committed and as the saying goes "There is no better time than now".
