Reality Check

Last Update: November 19, 2016

Hey gang. So, this past week has been a roller coaster ride for me. I was given a high pressure assignment at work that absolutely had to be finished by Friday. We had a long way to go and a short time to get there. My team and I put in many hours and thankfully the job got done in time.

At the same time, I instigated a challenge here at WA. Well, because of the hours I put in at work, I wasn't left with any time to participate. I feel terrible that I may have left some people hanging and I apologize to them.

For the remainder of the year, my work schedule isn't getting any lighter. Several of my co workers will be taking their vacations in the next few weeks and I'm going to have to pick up some of their slack.

The reality of my situation is, my current job is paying the bills. I have to focus on that for now, especially with the holidays just around the corner.

This doesn't leave me with much time for challenges.

I hate to do this because I'm the type of person that values my integrity. I hope the community doesn't hold this against me, but I'm going to have to resign from my own challenge. The timing just isn't right for me to follow through with it.

This really sucks because I wanted to capitalize on the momentum I built up during the 30 day blogging challenge. I felt like this was going to be a great way to expand upon the hard work I put towards building my website.

Again, I apologize to anybody who I left hanging. This was never my intention and I hope you don't hold this against me. In the future, I promise to be a little more cautious about issuing and accepting these challenges.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for reading this.

John

I know of what you speak, John!
In the early stages of our journey, reality still tears us away from the level of involvement we truly want.
I think that makes our perseverence in lessons and websites so important, plus all the help here, sooner or later, that reality will shift, and we can operate right from where "the material" is.....
Looking foreward to that myself........

Thanks Alex, I appreciate that. I'm not giving up on my dream of becoming a Wealthy Affiliate. That's just not an option :) I have a job to do and it pays the bills. So for now, that's where my focus needs to be.

I know exactly how you feel. Priorities are important if you have a family

Thanks Rich. I agree, providing for your family and prioritizing their needs should come first.

You can only do what you can and paying the bills and looking after the family are your main priority, everything else is second as far as priorities go.
Cheers, Tosh :)
