There's No Sleep For The Wicked
Sleep, what's that?
It's difficult to find time, we are all aware of this so I won't go on about it too much, although It's important to try and manage your time!
I find that the only time I have is late evening, after work, dinner, walking the dog, doing the housework etc... This is normally about 9pm. That's when I start looking at everything on WA, posting on my website, doing the training, giving site feedback, you know all the stuff you do! It is usually about 1am that I wrap everything up and get to bed only to be woken by the infernal alarm at 6am meaning I have to get ready for work.
Boy am I tired, still, no rest for the wicked.
Got to keep up the momentum, right?
The reason I force myself through this is that I want to make my website successful. Just like everyone else here I have a goal that I want to achieve and posting every day is a way to achieve the goal I'm after.
I have spent a lot of energy and time ( Sorry, mentioned it again! ) on getting to where I am today with my website. It's not made me any money yet and hasn't ranked in Google but I have had a small amount of visitors and now I've gone social I hope to get many more. I have also applied to lots of affiliate programs and been rejected by some recently which is so disheartening as they could be the key to getting that sale.
So I get back on the web and search up more affiliate programs for my niche, no rest for the wicked.
Need a holiday? Yep, me too!
I am going on a short family holiday next week, the first in four years and I can't wait to getaway. Away from the town I live in and more importantly, away from work! My full time job work that is that I still have my website to update. No rest for the wicked!
Or is there?
I was painting the fence in my garden today and thinking about WA, it's kind of taking over my life a little bit and I was trying to convince myself that I can leave my website for 5 days. Nothing is really happening at the moment so it will be fine. But, the stubborn git that I am surfaced and said 'Hell no, gotta keep up the momentum buddy'.
He was right, that's to say I was right, or at least I agreed with myself that I have to keep going and produce content. I can't let this slip. But, what about my family? My long-suffering partner, my 3 kids who just want to spend time with me for a few days. What about them?
And then Eureka, I had the solution. I am up until all hours doing stuff at WA, why not write extra content and save it. Then I could post it quickly from my phone while I am away. I could do it first thing in the morning and then the day is my own, and my family's of course!
Almost like when you prepare food in a restaurant kitchen before you open for the evening. Prepare for the holiday by writing enough content so that I can still work on my website while I am away but it will only take 2 seconds instead of 2 hours.
Well, thanks for listening to me warble on, I'm off to prepare for my holiday. There's no rest for the wicked.
