A memo to self
A MEMO TO SELF
Many persons who came to my website comment on the diversity of the activity that I appear to be involved in.
Some go as far as to suggest that I must be very busy. I don’t ever see myself as busy, in fact while some days are more filled than others. I always manage to do the two things that are most important to me
·Spending quality time with my God; and
·Spending quality time with my wife Chery (the delight of my eyes), my children and grandchildren.
One is my destination the other my legacy. Now I am not perfect nor am I superman, nor is my discipline all that great.
But lately I have found that certain things appear to have fallen behind, for example I found that I had greatly underestimated the amount of time I need to spend on things WA – two (2) hours per day has turned out to be not enough – already my WA emails average over one hundred (100) per day – even as I write my current outstanding is one hundred and sixty seven (167) emails, excluding what I have already read for the day.
I found that I was having a time management problem which was affecting my commitment and confidence, which in turn I found was actually frustrating me and then demotivating me.
We all run into this wall – when enthusiasm of doing a new thing runs out and good old fashioned stick-to-it-iveness (if there is such a word has to take over. I had to be wary of becoming disillusioned. This happens to everybody at one time or another – it just happened to be my time.
I SLOWED DOWN
So what did I do? I wrote a memo to myself - SLOWED DOWN
I sat down at 2.34 am (my time) this morning and did a re-evaluation of my goals and objectives in respect of Wealthy Affiliates (WA). So I relaxed and took a realistic look at where I was.
The result is that I decide to –
·Focus on the training – to make sure that I get some training done each and every day – thereby build up competence, and so increase my confidence.
I am a relative newbie to affiliate marketing and website build, so my confidence in my ability isn’t all that.
Hey – confidence always waver when you move into new territory, learning new things or breaking new ground – don’t fool yourself
·Focus (at the start) on building two (2) websites – the first on affiliate marketing, the second on my main passion and publish them.
·Focus on writing my blogs – “A Memo to Self” being the first – at least one every two (2) days; and
·Focus on spending time in the community, but (everything in context) putting greater emphasis on training, building my websites and writing my blogs.
BECAUSE I SLOWED DOWN - I WAS ABLE TO GO FASTER
Because I slower down, I was able analyze my challenges and re-evaluate my process. Sometimes it makes sense to write a MEMO TO YOURSELF. It will give you balance and help you to keep your sanity
