Last Update: February 10, 2016

I have been premium for 2 weeks now. On the 15th of Feb I will pay for my 2nd month. i came in at rank 6247 & 3 weeks later I'm ranking 1277 as I write this blog. So where am I at & how did I get here? Assessment time!!

  • I welcome all new Premium Members every day till I hit my message limit>
  • I have writen 5 blogs thus far. roughly 1 a week.
  • I responded to those who have commented on my blogs or thanked me welcoming them
  • Completed Certification courses 1 & 2
  • Started building out my website with content
  • Participated in live chats

ontop of that I work a full time job form 3:30pm-11:00pm. I get my kids up everymorning for school starting at 5:30am. Full time husband & gigs with my band at least every other weekend. Whew!!!!!! I'm tired just typing all of this. which brings me to my point.

It's Ok To Take A Break.

Rome wasn't built in a day. All work & no play makes Franco a grumpy bear. I feel pretty good about my progress in 3 weeks. Sometimes you have to recharge your batteries, have some "ME TIME" and get a new perspective on things. You know what? It's ok!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, that's a very inspirational story! You must be superman! How do you have the energy?! I have a problem with time management. Cause I can never find enough time in a day to do it all. Any tips since you're so awesome at it?
Good work and keep at it!

Thank you LizPB. I'm no superman, but I'm very driven. My father once told me "There is no such thing as good luck!!!! You make your own luck in this world" He also said "The brass ring ain't gonna come knocking on your front door. Why do you think you have to grab it"?

Both of these statements had & still have a profound influence on my life. I don't believe in handouts. I believe hard ethical work brings rich results. As far as time management goes, What works most for me is compartmentalizing my time in a 24 hour period. Your question on time management has inspired me to write my next blog on Time management so TY very much. i should have it posted in the next few hours. I'll explain how I do it and even lay out an average day for me so you can see how it works.

There are so many reasons that you could let life get in the way, but you aren't accepting any! That's great! Yes, it is very good to take breaks and it's good you're realizing that early on. Good for you. You're off to a great start!
I really commend your effort, you've really encouraged me to put more effort and also to wake up to the real deal. It's a good example and challenge to new student like me.
