It is not uncommon to find glitches in our systems, in our program, in our lives. We like everything to run smooooothly. And many times it does. And sometimes, it doesn’t. So what to do when it happens? Do you let this disrupt your peace of mind? For how long?
Today I was looking at my sign ups for my newsletter and one thing led to another. For whatever reason, I decided to sign up for my Living Your Dreams newsletter at the landing page of The Dream Movie and found that after I confirmed my subscription, it took me to a blank page that said something like “nothing here.”
My initial go to place was minor “panic”. As entrepreneurs, I am sure you have heard the saying that the money is in your list. Sounds a bit harsh. The truth is this is the main way I communicate with people who are interested in what I do.
I sent my assistant an email to look into it, but then my problem-solving mind wanted to figure it out. After researching it and testing it for about 15 minutes, I am still puzzled as it appears to be set up correctly.
But I have other priorities for the day. I had to remind myself that all is well. People are still signing up everyday. Approximately 200 new people opt to receive my Living Your Dreams newsletter through that particular movie every month. They are still getting their confirmation email.
This is not worth disrupting my peace of mind or my productivity.
After all I had a blog post to write 🙂 and a speech to prepare for. And a full slate of coaching clients today.
So did this glitch disrupt my peace of mind? Did it disrupt my productivity? Yes, but just slightly and for a very short period of time. I have delegated it and it will get fixed. All is well. And I had good fodder for my blog post.
How about you? How are you dealing with the glitches in your systems? We can intend for things to run smoothly and that will help. But when glitches do happen, take a deep breath or better yet, do the OMM. It will provide the space so you can see that the setbacks are temporary, they will get fixed and you don’t have to be the one to fix them. Then take a look and see how you can make lemonade from it.
Let us know how you are dealing with glitches as they occur in your life.
