Last month turned out alright. I’m still having trouble getting copywriting clients, but this bullshit will stop. It’s in my head, not in my pitch.
I did write my book and submit the my TMBA application, but so far I haven’t profited much from either.
I am not where I expected myself to be a month ago, and I can say that for most months since I started down the entrepreneurial path. The problem is not in my self control, as self control is a limited resource.
The problem is in my pattern.
I must develop a pattern in which I devote a certain period of time daily to work. In which I have frequent days off. In which I achieve a balence of accomplishment and excitement every day.
I propose a three hour work day. Three hours is more than enough to accomplish a daily task. This leaves me with about 11 hours of free time to explore, relax, enjoy, and celebrate life.
I must accomplish something before I relax to follow my whims for a time and, until all my day’s goals are accomplished, my whimsical time shall be limited to 30 minute breaks in between tasks.
Okay, so it is decided: the day shall consist of three hours maximum of work, and no other actions for longer than 30 minutes (seperated by an hour) until the day’s work is completed.
I am conflicted on the matter of getting fit. I do it because I want to look good, but will that result in me instinctivly trying to please others? I’ll shoot up a post very soon as to my thoughts on that and my decision.
Onward to my November Goals:
- Sell your first online product via online store
- make a store
- find a dropshipper
- make a sale
- Make $250 via copywriting
- Make $450 total
- Do not succumb to the fear of being judged and shunned by others.
- Go 15 days without breaking the bracelet (I’ll explain the “Break it/Make it Bracelet” technique soon.
- Check out Stepan’s new goal charts and decide if I want to use, modify, or ignore them.
- Make $15/day so that I can afford to buy transportation and meals for small travel
Done. I now have tasks are are intense enough to improve my life and chill enough to let me enjoy it, and a schedule that demands success while limiting grind-time.
P.S. Quick status update: I’m currently living in my friend Tomer’s dorm at Queens University. University is AMAZING without the pressure of school.
