What I did today

Today was not productive. I had a ton of work to do at the office so I, unfortunately, did very little on the side. I didn’t post any articles on my websites, I didn’t pitch new clients, I didn’t land new clients.

In fact, I did one piece of work for an UpWork client and that is it.

Honestly, that’s a straight-up bummer.

Tomorrow needs to be much, much more work.

What I’m thinking about today

Today is now the 50th day of this case study! That’s a milestone I’ve been looking forward too for quite a while. Since starting this case study actually! I’ve been thinking I should do something to celebrate that day once it arrives. Similarly, I’ve thought I should celebrate when I reach 100 days, 500 days, 1,000 days.

But now that day is here and I don’t feel like it’s worth celebrating.

Okay, yes. I’ve now been working on my dreams for 50 days. I’ve been pushing hard and doing what I can to reach that goal.

But, nothing has really changed. I still am exhausted, with a job in the morning. I feel like crap, haven’t been eating healthy, and haven’t been working out.

A lot needs to change. I haven’t been doing enough. I could do better

How I’m Feeling Today

I’m annoyed at myself. I’m looking at my numbers and I could do better. I’ve spent more this month than I ever would have liked to have spent. I’m not particularly thrilled by this.

Granted, I’ve now spent ~$2,500 this month for my businesses. Some of that has been on content, some of that has been hiring freelancers, some of that has just been regular expenses.

I need to get through this year. If you look down at my expenses number, you see it’s large as shit. That’s a problem!

However, a lot of these expenses are currently fixed, meaning it’s debt that I owe. However, once we hit November, those expenses will fall off a cliff. In fact, they should fall to around ~$125/day at the most.

I need to get to that point, then each day will feel like I’m making more and doing more on the progress side of things.

Again, however, I need to kick my butt into gear.

  • Pitch on at least 10 projects today
