I'm All In Now!
After much consideration, I opted to take advantage of the Black Friday special of $299/yr. I suppose the "much consideration" may sound a bit strange to some since I went Premium a few months ago, but what lies beneath the surface was a critical part of my decision.
You see, I rely largely on my instincts. And in this case, I couldn't shake the feeling that passing up this opportunity would be a big mistake.
Typically, when I decide to do something, nothing---and I mean NOTHING stands in my way. I will live and breathe whatever it is until I learn as much as I can and do my very best toward accomplishing my goal. When I was in grad school, I used to get teased about only cutting my nails during semester breaks!
However, digging my heels in and doing this at WA has proven to be difficult. These days, very little time is my own. This makes sustaining focus and concentration extremely difficult at best. Another disadvantage is that most all of this is new to me and going through a lesson once doesn't necessarily mean I've learned it. Thank goodness for the re-play button.
The bottom line is this: My method of learning has changed; so has my method of accomplishing a goal.
The good news is: I'm seeing progress. I remain hopeful. I still have the ability to cope with life on life's terms---all of which are powerful positives.
