It was a relatively busy day, but it didn’t feel like that.

The reason why is I was bouncing between a bunch of different projects. For some reason, trying to drive ~5 projects forward on one day (my three consulting, redesigning  $10K, and selling my sites) feels less busy than driving one thing forward.

All the research in the word shows that multitasking is a bad thing and it slows down your productivity.

But, it feels more “less busy”, which I think a lot of people conflate feeling “less busy” with productivity.

That is a difficulty and a  problem. I don’t want to be “less busy” and shy away from that fear. I’d rather be busy on one thing than feel “productive” because I’m doing six different things.

With that in mind, I’m on the last little stretch of busy-ness. If I finalize the private equity project and the modeling project today as planned, then I’m much more freed up from bouncing around.

Which allows me to get  “busy” again.

What I did yesterday to make $10K a day at 30

The current phase of the plan

I’m in Phase #1:  The Job & Side  Hustle Phase.  You can read more about the phases and my plan to get to $10K/a day at 30 here.

Wake up & sleep:

I forgot to charge the Whoop so it was dead last night.

Exercise

I walked 10,000 steps around the apartment while on calls, which is great. At the same time, no specific exercise and workout.

I’m going to hopefully do a legit workout today.

Diet

Diet was relatively good. I had some eggs and a huge smoothie.

My Day Job

It was a Tuesday, so I had a couple of calls for work and did a couple of documents, but it was only a few hours of  work

Investment real estate

Waiting to hear from both property managers about all the issues from yesterday. Hoping to hear from both of them today, but we’ll see.

I did spend some time getting the Stessa dashboard together

Side Consulting

I have three projects going, but two are almost done.

Business plan

I finalized a draft powerpoint,  which was great, and shared that with my client.

Private Equity

I’m did some final touch-ups on the deck and it’s hopefully in a good spot for my readout today with the team.

Let’s hope they’re happy. I think the output is pretty damn good.

Financial modeling

I spent more time on calls than actually modeling. I’ll have to do some modeling tomorrow.

Sourcing new work

No new work right now!

$10K/day website

I spent 31 minutes,  according to Rescue  Time, to publish yesterday’s post and work with my developer guy on the redesign.

Family

My fiancee and I had breakfast and dinner together and did some walking around the apartment together.

Miscellaneous

Nothing today

Rescue Time Daily Screenshot

I invested in Rescue Time, to help me understand where I’m spending my time vs. not, but really for the purposes of the case study.

(I know all these photos are pixelated! Working on fixing it)

What I made today

Job: $170

Rental Income: $33

UpWork: $22.50

Today’s pro-rated amount of monthly expenses

Expenses: $250

Once I pay off my debt, I’ll break out expenses into a line by line as well.

Today’s Income

Made $195.50

My plan for tomorrow

Tomorrow is Wednesday and I have to:

  • Private Equity readout
  • Finish modeling
  • $10K/day redesign
  • A quick real estate related project

All in, I think about 4-5 hours or so
