The Odd Couple, starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman, was a smash hit and one of the most beloved shows of all time. But its creator and executive producer, Garry Marshall, was young and terrified:
At the time, I was pretty new to television and I went to work every day of the first season scared to death. I desperately wanted to do a good job.
Unfortunately, I didn’t even know what a ‘good job’ looked like. One thing I did know was that people were looking to me for answers and I had to be ready with them. I had to make a decision right or wrong.
And time and again he did make those decisions.
You might be new to online marketing, and you might be terrified of making a wrong decision. That’s okay.
Any decision is better than no decision. Any action is better than no action. After all, you can’t learn from mistakes you never get a chance to make. You can’t win the lottery if you don’t buy a ticket, and you can’t get rich online if you don’t DO something.
Just learn to make decisions and carry those decisions out, and you’ll be fine.
A little terror is a good thing – it keeps you on your toes.
