Every four weeks I bake four breads, and we eat one that evening and next day, and I freeze the other three.
While I was preparing the dough today, I had time to think of other things…
First, I found it a funny coincident that “dough” can also be slang for money.
Next I was thinking about how I made the dough. Since I only do it every four weeks, I use a recipe and I follow it closely.
This makes me certain that I add the correct amount of flour and sugar and egg… and that the result will turn out great every time.
But once in a while something unexpected happens… Like one day, I didn’t have much white flour left, and I had to add some wholewheat flour.
You know what I did?
I wrote down how much wholewheat and how much white flour I’d used.
The result was great, and now I know how to make those breads with wholewheat, too.
Keep track of what you’re doing!
In Internet marketing it’s very important to keep track of what you’re doing.
When you do it, you know why you suddenly got a spike in traffic, and you will know how to reproduce it.
That will help you improve and grow your business.
If you tweak your existing blueprints, you’ll also know what works and what doesn’t.
So it’s really helpful, and doesn’t take much longer.
In fact, you can make up in saved time later, when you have your notes to fall back on.
