There are at least 200 working days a year. If you commit to doing a simple marketing item just once each day, at the end of the year you’ve built a mountain. Here are some things you might try (don’t do them all, just one of these once a day would change things for you):

  • Send a handwritten and personal thank you note to a customer
  • Write a blog post about how someone is using your product or service
  • Research and post a short article about how something in your industry works
  • Introduce one colleague to another in a significant way that benefits both of them
  • Read the first three chapters of a business or other how-to book
  • Record a video that teaches your customers how to do something
  • Teach at least one of your employees a new skill
  • Go for a ten minute walk and come back with at least five written ideas on how to improve what you offer the world
  • Change something on your website and record how it changes interactions
  • Help a non-profit in a signficant way (make a fundraising call, do outreach)
  • Write or substiantially edit a Wikipedia article
  • Find out something you didn’t know about one of your employees or customers or co-workers

Enough molehills is all you need to have a mountain.

 

Seth Godin

I feel no fear in my heart

My eyes are forward-set

To discover all that this love

Holds for me to enjoy.

My tears have long been bottled,

So I leave behind the errors of yesterday

To join my hand with yours

With that faith in you

That helped me so much in the past.

My cares are now forgotten

For you have promised to care for me;

You tell me not to worry,

You say you’ll always be there.

It’s true others have deceived me

And it seems alright to be a little scared:

But my eyes see no future tears

I can only imagine lasting joy with you.

So don’t mind if I’m not always there,

I know you’ll take me as I am.

At last I found joy that never fails

And I’m glad I found it in you.

DETERMINATION

The road gets slippery under us

But never slips us off our path.

The road filled through with thorns

Seems to us the smoothest one,

Our hearts for once do not forget

The final destination of our dreams.

We have troubles but never worry

We are lonely but never feel forgotten,

We stand fast in our faith

Each day making us braver and stronger still.

We are pressed on all sides,but not crushed,

We are perplexed,but not in despair,

Persecuted but not forsaken,

Cast down but not destroyed.

We face storms and come out victors,

Tempests and we triumph.

We scale hurdles and not once

do we brush the bar.

We survive these rough times

And get our share of pain.

But we don`t get pain alone;

We get joy unknown to men,

Strength that never fails;

And most of all we get a crown of gold.
