Know when to hit … the Red ‘X’s”

To hit the red X‘s is dangerous

When something happens and you know it was you that hit the red “X’s”, what do you do?

For me, I was in the link shortening tool called TidyURL. In the menus searching for something.

Having just deleted some spare not even used lists from AWeber.  The associated automatic responder that’s  linked to the menus mentioned.  Unthinkingly I went to close the menus for  this time and simply hit the Red “X”  in the top righthand corner.  ‘Woops’ wrong X to push.  Mistakenly thinking ‘close menu’ when I know hit the red X had always meant Delete. And delete it did.

One small action  was repeated several times.  And together quite a lot of links between posts and social media sharing suddenly became ‘void’  renames as 404’s.  Which of course is the third time this has been done by myself!

Way too many emotions arrive to hit the red X

Shamed and embarrassed has nothing to compare with.  However, this action took nearly two months to tell someone about. In between there was the issue of avoidance and confusing as how

did one get something like that back.  The answer currently is they don’t./  The damage is done.

Then it was simply a matter of associating the Google analytic’s side of thing.  Way to many bounces of bots and people onto the now pages, posts, pictures articles  all being 404’s.

What halted a loss of confidence through the “OH NO I’Ve done THAT again”  riding high experience was something called confession. In the SFM community, there is AWake up call.  Five times a week this is broadcast. Active with community members participation some raise their hand to be on the panel.  Nicknamed “Bobble-heads mind you.  There are the fun catch up times before the live streaming.

However to hit the red brought forward possitive changes

Speaking up in response to something else being spoken about out ‘it’ comes – the loss of the Shortened Links again. Added to the end was “Now I have created a spread sheet that tell me”… and I will be recording”

Besides feeling much freer within self there was a fail it forward ‘ method in reinforcing the learning processes.

The host of the AWakeUp call is JJ.  JJ previously had heard from Stuart Ross this expression “Why waste a good disaster”  And loosing those links is the equivalent of a disaster in the making.

On the positive side you ever want to have reinforcement about checklists and recordings of URLs sharing please back these up by creating your own Spread Sheet data base.  This is a terrific action plan as now the sharing has to be five times as many links per UTL published.  Then maybe, just maybe to hit the red X bounce rate will start to become balanced in the associated Google

Suffer from narcissistic tendencies when working things out?

Knowing there are many times those “Oh No I did not do that! Did I?” moments that really drag at our gut arise! Then were these brought about from narcissistic tendencies thoughts arrive?

Does the overcontrolling keep the filing neat as a pin side of personalities get frustrated with “well that does not work today Why” Obsessive Compulsive Disorders side of creativity fixing a situation?
Never quite sure if it’s from narcissistic tendencies, or the Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder [OCpD], that the disregarding rules of engagement with widgets and apps happen. Or just a creative streak. However when people hit the little red X top right corner of the Tidy URL menu, they maybe forgetting it means DELETE and not close. All sorts of close down mechanisms come into play depending on which one of these two character traits have the majority of ‘what to do now actionable votes’ on the day.

Pointedly one solution found on the internet are forums, groups, collections and even encyclopedias of knowledge is out of date or the site referred to is currently set of standards needs checking. Many people have found that it is extremely hard to work out a today’s solution to a problem with yesterday’s howtos!

Look for solutions RIGHT here

This Is one of the reasons for finding that one platform where the information would be congruent with the methods and compliance standards of the day.

And believe me, this educational journey I am on sure needed the assistance often. Over time. there has been quite a few emails being sent to the DBL and SFM support personal. My poor old sponsor and even a few people who have joined and are working things out the same as me.

Pin down, retrain, move forward into positive aspects from Narcissistic traits

What tends to be the case is that one of us will have a win here and then find ourselves in a pathetic blotched up heap. However as time has gone on you talk to one and they remember what another has started with something similar. Pass the name along and a new contact is made. Or what has been said with the Its fixed jubilation is enough for you to go… “OH I never thought of that” Maybe it is a right move. Maybe not. However what is found is something clicks somewhere. And traits from narcissistic tendencies now have a new pattern of learned behavior being applied in order to come up with a workable practicable solution. Mine was to recreate the initial spreadsheet that housed all the URLs from the sites. Then to establish which link went directly were within the site. From there to reach out and schedule past posts with a new now connecting link. PLUS reshare and format another couple of links to that post. Tedious repetitious and when creatively approached quite a different set of progressive fun. All recorded via my link Generator a tool from the DBL side of DEA.
