My First Blog finally, Hurray!
I've been meaning to blog for a while now, but so much to do, and so little time, you know how it goes.
A Bit About Me
I currently work in the corporate world, which I guess I need to refer to as my "real" job (since it's the only one bringing in an income right now). But, if I'm being honest, I've become a little bored and restless with it......eek, is this that midlife crisis thing!? So here I am at WA, having a blast learning and creating (and hopefully someday making a profit).
I started with WA on October 1st (exactly 43 days ago), and started my website as soon as I had a few lessons under my belt. I write posts, and learn from the WA community, inbetween working that "real" job that I mentioned (above). So far I have 8 posts, 7 pages, and 40 approved comments. I wish I had more time! But I certainly have no plans on quitting, so in time it will grow to something substantial. The quicker I get through the courses here at WA, the more time I'll have to write! I find so much time has been taken just trying to devise a plan, and figure things out.....but that's not time wasted!
I'm trying really, really hard to apply the same concept to my Google Analytics account that I do to my stock investments portfolio........just don't look! I mean, it's good to look occasionally, just not all the time, to the point of making yourself anxious, and crazy (which I sometimes do).
My Biggest Downfall
I tend to get 100 ideas in my head of things that need to be done RIGHT NOW. And, for obvious reasons, I can't complete that many things all at once. So I start to do a little of this, and a little of that, and a little of the other thing, until I finally realize that I'm not being productive at all! I have to stop and remind myself to work on one thing at a time in order to bring things through to completion. Acknowledgment of the problem is the first step! So at least I've got that going for me, and I am getting better. It would be nice if WA had a board of click and drag post it notes that could be created on your own personal productivity board (that would help me anyway).
Thankful for the WA Community, and Kyle & Carson!
I'm having a great time! I've learned a ton and so enjoy the fact that there is a community to back me up should I get stuck! Thanks to all of you who have helped me out (some of you without even knowing, through your blogs/trainings/questions), and hopefully I can do the same for some of you in return.
See you 'round the community!
