What I did today

Yesterday was Monday and  I felt a little weird.  As I write this, I also feel a little weird.

I think it’s the virus. I think it’s a >50% chance I’ll get laid off. It’s also been one of the longest streaks I’ve had without selling a project.

With both of those in mind, it makes me feel like I’m failing. I have goals, big goals, to acquire and add on more property, to reach  $10K/a day.

So, not being able to do the standard work makes me believe I’m not on track.

There’s no reason to believe I’m “off-track”, but I certainly feel like it.

I think I just need to sell a nice, $5,000+ project and I’ll feel a lot better

Wake up & sleep:

I woke up at 6:50 am for a total amount of sleep of 7 hours and 17 minutes. I was pretty exhausted when I woke up though, and I  still am actually. Today was also a not-great day from wake up perspective and I am still tired.

The tiredness has to be the lack of exercise and diet. I need to rectify that

Exercise

I took another couple of walks around the apartment,  but no specific workout.

Diet

Morning coffee, a delicious smoothie, garbanzo beans & spinach, and some Thai food.

Our Instacart order is coming today and it should be loaded up with veggies so I’m excited about that and cannot wait for the veggies.

My Day Job

I had a fair amount of work to do today for the day job. The day job is in peril  I think from both a layoff perspective and a company stability perspective. I mentioned it above, but I think there is at least a  50% chance that I’m not employed in  6  months, maybe even sooner.

Investment real estate

No action here today outside of scrolling my saved searches.

We should receive a bid shortly from one of our property managers shortly to complete some work on one of our buildings.

Once that work is complete and the building is 100% occupied, we’re good to go on buying the next  24 units.

Kindle

One book sale; no action.

Amazon Affiliate Websites

No publishing today, but I did get my biggest day yet in terms of commissions.

One of my sites has something technically wrong with it where Google isn’t finding it. I’ll need to check and figure out what is wrong. I thought I fixed it, but maybe not.

These websites are a big part of my income plan so I need to fix this ASAP.

Consulting

No work here today.

I need to sell something.

Family

Fiancee time
