Stay “Ahead of the Chains”!

There’s a philosophy in football about “staying ahead of the chains”. And what it basically means is doing the hard work early and getting ahead of yourself so that your goals are that much more in reach.

Are you doing that when it comes to your business? Or are you always playing catch up?

Hey, we’re all guilty of it from time to time. But staying ahead of the game definitely pays off, especially during the holidays when you know you’re going to get pulled away from your work for friends and family and everything that comes with the holidays, right?

Staying ahead also allows you time to take breaks! You know what I’m doing ALL DAY today?

It’s the same thing I do EVERY Sunday during football season. I’m kicking back and watching football ALL DAY LONG and the volume is gonna get louder and lifer until I feel like I’m at the stadium! Lol

Make it your focus to always stay productive, get ahead of your goals and ahead of your work schedule so that you can REWARD yourself with some much deserved relaxation, whatever that may be for you!

Enjoy your weekend, enjoy your time with your loved ones this week, and get ready for a spectacular Black Friday!

By the way, how cold is it where you’re at? Let me know!

Hi Eric, That is awesome that you are ahead. I am behind playing catch up because I am still in my level 2 training and I am doing training in Civil Air Patrol better known as CAP. So I have been busy trying to play catch with that too.

And to top it off I have been feeling very well. Not sick with COVID I have had all of my shots for that. Not with the flu either had my shot for that too. And not a cold either. I am just in pain and lots of it. With that being said, I am my own weather vain because when it starts changing seasons and temperatures I literally feel it every year.

I am really hoping that I can get ahead of both trainings but I don't take breaks because I also feel that I need to do something. But other then that. You deserve that much needed break.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and enjoy your football games. Keep on doing what you do and success will come sooner than you think.

Thanks Mary! Hope you feel better soon!

Hi Eric, I hope that your Thanksgiving was nice and that you enjoyed with your family and friends.

We just had a quiet Thanksgiving just the two of and our furbabies and that's it. Nothing special.

Now it Christmas and it will be the same quiet and just the two of us and that is okay with me. I don't like crowds I can't take the noise of so many people chattering.

Good morning Eric,

Thank you for your blog post, they are always appreciated!

I would like to say that I'm always ahead of my goals, but realistically that is not always the case. Having an offline business and building an online business can limit the time we have to do certain tasks. Fortunately, my offline business is quieter this time of year, so I can dedicate more time to the online business. I look forward to working full-time online very soon.

Regarding the weather, here in the UK, it's 37°F at the moment, however, we had a good summer and good autumn of above-average weather! My wife is visiting her home country at the moment in Greece, they have had temperatures of 72°F and blue skies! That's good for northern Greece at this time of year.

Had a great day.

Keep warm,Roy!

Thank you, Eric, I am one of the fortunate ones who doesn't feel the cold like some people do. Probably from working outside all my life!

All the best.

Hello Eric, great message!

I can tend to be a workaholic, I love working on my ideas and craft, jewellery designs. I can be hyped up when I see the possible outcomes.

Watching you do these new mini vlogs are going to be so powerful for members of Wealthy Affiliate, thanks for sharing the power of having productivity in life.

Enjoy your football.

Kind regards
Erica

Glad you enjoyed this! Thanks so much for the comment!

Thanks, you are a natural on camera :)

Lol! Well I live in sunny the central part of Alberta, Canada, and the temperature is a cozy 1 deg. Celsius. Lots of snow but not very cold.

Umm, on Sundays, I love to watch the NHL games, and of course, I'm an Edmonton Oilers fan. They're on the plane at the moment...

Great video, Eric! Happy blessed Thanksgiving... yum, turkey and beer 🍺 so much to be thankful for.

Haha sounds like you’re nice and cozy!

46F in Portland, Oregon. I am not from this area. I am from Minnesota. Looks like the Cowboys nabbed the Minnesota Vikings (My purple team) 23-3 now in 3rd Quarter. We have to wait and see, there is still some time for the Vikings to catch up they are number one in NFC North

Oh you know I’m watching too! Have a great Sunday! Stay warm!

The score is now 37-3 so looks like the Vikings gonna be the loser today. Not playing well today that's ok. Enjoy the game.
