Wednesday: Midweek Motivation
Trust your gut feeling. That is something we all know to be true, but sometimes it’s really hard.
You’re rushing around trying to “make something happen” and it’s really REALLY hard. You drop your keys, you slip on the ice, you do X, Y, or Z. UGH.
Well… that was my today.
I wanted to buy a new photography backdrop so when I take photos they look good online. I’ve use black for about 4 years. I still think it looks great. I’m not a hip/trendy person, really… quite the opposite. However, I have skills in marketing things.
Last week I bought a wood panel background and it looks nice. It also kind of looks like every other photo on the internet. I like black. But the black does kind of look dated. So my choices… look dated or look like everyone else.
Recently I’ve noticed 80s colors are in style… armed with that trend I went to Amazon. I found some back drops in blue, pink, green. I put them in my cart – the total was over $100. They were too big for my small photo studio.
And I got stuck… should I order, should I not order, should I go to the fabric store tonight and get vinyl there? A storm is coming in and I don’t want to go shopping. But I’m hungry and I could get dinner, too. UGH (third time)
I got distracted (shocker)
And was hovering with my finger over the buy now button. UGH (fourth time) I just couldn’t buy the three backgrounds.
Then I searched again.
This time I found 24″ wide. Hummmmm….. this was impossible about 3 hours ago, I wonder why the 24″ are showing up in my results, now… BUT PINK WAS OUT OF STOCK.
I went to the post office to get the mail.
Opened it up and there was this Trendy advertising card. Sure enough it was a bright pink background with a very happy gal. It’s as if the color I want is mocking me.
SOOOOOO I searched again…
You know what I found? Nope not pink… I found a BUNDLE PACK with pink! And they’re 24″, the perfect size I need without cutting… AND they arrive in two days. I don’t have to go to the store.
The best part… this bundle pack was over 50% cheaper than the original three colors I had in my card… now I get 15 colors… no cutting… delivered to my door!
Yeah, this was a minor thing, but my gut was telling me not to make the decision for the three backdrops, but to just wait… I have no idea why I couldn’t find the “perfect” thing earlier today – but I’m glad I listened to my gut.
However, I’m still hungry and have no idea what I want for dinner.
Tomorrow… come back for my episode on “Infinity Customer”!
