When it comes to creating money in the adult industry, it’s more important to be creating something and in a constant state of action than to be trying to figure out what to do. In this article I want to talk about the thing that most people do, why action is key and some simple steps you can take when you’re not sure where to begin.
Prefer to watch?
The reason that this is so important is that it will take a decent amount of time whether you’re an affiliate or even a cam girl to catch your first whale. You’ll need to put as many fishing lines out as possible to be in with a chance of achieving your goals. It can also take up to a year for you to see results. This is why action is so important, so let’s jump right in.
How most people treat being “in motion” as action
When it comes to creating your new adult online business as I’ve said action is key. The issue is that most people treat being “in motion” as action. If you don’t know what I mean by this, let me explain what I mean by being “in motion.” This is a state of pre-action perhaps you’re planning out what you are going to do, planning out what strategy you will use or doing research.
While doing these things is important, they also trigger some dopamine in your brain, making you feel like you’ve achieved something when you actually haven’t. You’ve simply planned action. This means that a lot of people will spend days, weeks, or even months “in motion”. It is normal for us to plan out our idea before starting but this should not be replacing action.
Why action is better than in-depth planning
Now as I’ve already said, planning is important, however it should not replace action. Especially at the start, if you’ve been in this business a while like we have and you’re making money with it, then some more in-depth planning is allowed because we have data to work with. However, and I mean this in a nice way, anything you try to plan before starting is just guesswork. Also when you begin something like an online business for the first time, quantity will always beat quality. Let me point out a case study to tell you exactly why. In fact, even better, let author James Clear in his article explain exactly why:
“On the first day of class, Jerry Uelsmann, a professor at the University of Florida, divided his film photography students into two groups.
Everyone on the left side of the classroom, he explained, would be in the “quantity” group. They would be graded solely on the amount of work they produced. On the final day of class, he would tally the number of photos submitted by each student. One hundred photos would rate an A, ninety photos a B, eighty photos a C, and so on.
Meanwhile, everyone on the right side of the room would be in the “quality” group. They would be graded only on the excellence of their work. They would only need to produce one photo during the semester, but to get an A, it had to be a nearly perfect image.
At the end of the term, he was surprised to find that all the best photos were produced by the quantity group. During the semester, these students were busy taking photos, experimenting with composition and lighting, testing out various methods in the darkroom, and learning from their mistakes. In the process of creating hundreds of photos, they honed their skills. Meanwhile, the quality group sat around speculating about perfection. In the end, they had little to show for their efforts other than unverified theories and one mediocre photo.
It is easy to get bogged down trying to find the optimal plan for change: the fastest way to lose weight, the best program to build muscle, the perfect idea for a side hustle. We are so focused on figuring out the best approach that we never get around to taking action. As Voltaire once wrote, “The best is the enemy of the good.””James Clear, Atomic Habits, https://jamesclear.com/repetitions
This is a very clear and simple reason as to why “putting in your reps” is better than trying to plan a crafted masterpiece when you begin. When you’ve tried, tested, explored and put your reps in, then you can plan more because you’ve honed your craft.
