What I learned while I was “away”

Last Update: August 31, 2019

So, all of you well know that I’ve been trying to use and experiment with different landing page software that will bring more visitors to my website. I’m also still trying to get my woocommerce store opened and trying to get affiliate products into the store and being able to showcase the products which is a work in progress. My website postings and audience “clamber” has decreased a lot but I’m not worried because I know how to get it all back so its not an issue.

However, there are some things I learned while I was away. For one, working on multiple projects does not have to be complicated or one doesn’t has to wait years down the road so to speak. What I learned in this regard is to work on posting something on your website one day and spend all or a majority of the next day working on say, woocommerce or trying to get things into the store and working on experimentation then go back the next day working on your website post.

In so doing, you won’t feel like you have to put your website postings off until you’re completely ready to give your website your full undivided attention. I fought with this many a day over the 3 weeks that I didn’t post but I thought about this nifty trick and will implement it from now on.

I’ve also caught myself watching various videos on various things such as woocommerce and other providential related topics related to business. Another thing I learned to do was to divide up the video by however many minutes and seconds there are. For example, if you’re watching a video that’s 55 minutes long, watch only 11 minutes of it a day and take notes on it. Also, save your place by writing down the time you left off.

In so doing, you won’t have to watch the whole video all over again so make sure you absorb every little bit of that video or the minutes you’ll watch it. This is in instances where you have a short attention span or don’t have time to sit through the whole video.

This is also for you people out there who can’t sit at your computer for longer than 4 hours without it ruining your eyes, it happens to me sometimes where you sit at your computer for longer than 4 hours and your eyes has to readjust to the light outside.

I’m not shortcutting by no means, I’m just trying to offer suggestions so we as a business building people don’t have to feel like we have to sit at our computers for hours on end.

All input welcome!

That's cool Jim, I used to do that too until I created this system and found it easier; I get confused easily with too many tasks and trying to get too much done in one day.

That’s great that you found a system that works for you. I personally have been doing exactly what you propose with breaking up videos.

It’s the only way I have been able to get through an entire video and learn anything from it while trying to accomplish work on my site as well.

I actually bookmark them and continue to go back to it little by little until I complete it...all while trying to implement what I learn from it. It has been working well for me so far.

Keep up the progress and one of these days I expect to see you report earnings. That would be a joyous day for you!

I wish you the best!

Thanks Bob, I'm glad my suggestion is able to benefit someone other than me because if I'm being completely, most videos that we have to sit through is too long and that includes Jay's videos which I always used to fall asleep on so that's when I decided that I would break up the video in to timed portions so that way you can get through it.

Keep on rocking Bob, you're doing great.

I did fall asleep one time on Jay’s video.

That particular day I had very little sleep and had done my 8 hours for my employer. Then did some yard work when I got home.

I should have gone straight to bed. But wanted to see that particular video that evening.

It would have been better to watch it the next day...which is what I had to do after all, anyway...LOL!

I usually try to watch all videos in one sitting but I've gotten to the point where I can't especially since I usually start feeling like I have other things to do. But, that's why I like my suggestion because I can make it through videos that are over an hour long.

Thanks Rodney,
That makes a lot of sense...just like breaking up any large project into smaller “bite sized” pieces. But I’d never thought of using that technique for videos.
Keep on rockin’!

Thanks KyleAnn, I was just trying to think of ways I can make things a little easier on me because I usually take care of thousands of tasks involving my business a day so hence my clever idea.

Hi Rodney,

Great to hear from you again...it's been awhile.
I especially like the idea of dividing up the video and keeping track of the time where you left off. Thanks for sharing.
Always nice to hear from you.

Take care,
Audrey

Thanks Audrey, I'm back in the business game and I'm trying to come up with ways to build on my business and be able to maneuver around to other projects. I like my suggestions and thought that maybe they can help other people as well.
