Have You Stopped To Check Your Progress Recently?
So I just got back from a short 3-day trip to a music festival down in the south of Taiwan, and while I was there, I mused about one or two points that I'd like to make.
I've lived here since 2008, but until this year had never got around to going. Even though some years I could have got the weekend off, I never really wanted to. I'd have been losing money if I went, and would have had to use up some holiday leave etc.
This year, I thought "I've got no boss now, I'm just gonna go down and have some fun. I've got a smartphone and 3G, I can take my business with me".
While I was making up my mind to go, I suddenly realized:
Wow! How Awesome Is This? I've Got Nothing To Stop Me Going!
I'd been so busy working on my business, and growing my income, and trying to get more visitors, and generally being a bit of a nerd, that I'd not even noticed how far I'd come.
I work for myself now, I have an income, I can go away for a few days and my income will not suffer, and it's just an awesome feeling.
I blogged more about it on my site (and there's even a pic of me trying to "suck in the gut"), so you can read more there, but I just wanted to drop in and say to you all that no matter how far you've come, it's important to stop and take stock of what you've got going for yourself.
No way am I satisfied with what I've got, I definitely want more, but I'm absolutely delighted with how far I've come.
You should be too!
