Orchestra in the dead of night
Last Update: Sep 22, 2018
I have had a bit of an issue this week with writing my first buy/best/review type post at the start of Level 3 training and it sort of left me in limbo and not able to move on in the training. I've sorted it now and have a title, and have created a structured plan for my review post and know what I'm going to do.
The thing is because I wasn't able to get past this point because I was a bit stuck and confused I thought I would remain productive so I have spent the last three to four days engaging with the community and it has been really great. I've welcomed new WA members, congratulated new premium members, tried answering questions and liking comments and I have been replying to all notifications.
The thing is I am struggling to keep up with responding to everyone as I now have quite a network and I am receiving a lot of notifications. This now brings me to the point that my wife has just taken her self off to bed and in saying goodnight has just asked me to leave the orchestra downstairs when I come to bed.
" Orchestra?" I asked bemused. It was then she explained to me as I'm a Heavy sleeper I hadn't heard my phone receiving hundreds of notifications throughout the night and sounding like an orchestra!
After I stopped laughing I apologised profusely and told her that I would address the problem by turning my phone on silent.
I have also realised I cannot fit in working on my website and engaging as much as I have been for the last few days when I work full time and have two young children to look after. I will still engage everyday but I will not be able to respond to everybody all the time. If you message me or post and I do not comment or reply , please don't think I don't care or am being rude as thats really not the case at all.
I am going to have to schedule time to work on my website and also a portion of my time to engage in the community as well. I just really need to concentrate on my website for the next few days. My next post my review post will be one of the posts that hopefully converts customers into making purchases so I really need to get it right and give it all of my focus and attention.
Anyway best put my phone on silent now as has been requested. I wish you all a continued success here at WA and will catch up with you all soon.
Have a great day
I applaud you for trying to stay on top of all your notifications. I know it's hard. But to be honest, the important part is to focus on your site first, once you start seeing success, and maintaining it starts to become like second nature, then you can start adding in other things.
It might not be a bad idea to maybe put a time limit on yourself for responding to messages. I do not have a FT job, so I don't have a time limit, per se, but my daily emails alone can easily take up most of the morning. We've all been there, you just need to find the balance that works best for you.
Hi Peter, I can totally relate. I too am on #3 in the training. I wish you all the best, and don't forget to turn that Orchestra off before you go to bed.
Peter, you can't respond to them all, so don't worry. Everybody here gets it. We are responding less as we go forward with our training and building out our website.
What we would like to do is create some success then come back and help others. But to do that we must focus on our business.
Keep the phone on silent and get to work! :D
