What I did today

Yesterday was an overall good day, but I’d love to get more work done and faster! This $10K/day world only works when I have a dozen income streams,  all of which are working to generate income. Otherwise, it’s a lot of nice effort but no results.

At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is results. So. I need to produce them.

Wake up & sleep:

I got exactly 7 and a half hours of sleep last night, going to bed at 11:36 and waking up at 7:48. Despite getting what is objectively a good amount of sleep, I still felt pretty tired during the day and a bit lethargic. Never a good thing when there is this much work to be done.

Exercise

No exercise here today, just walks around the apartment to stay moving during COVID.

Diet

Overall was okay for quarantine. Had some Thai food and read a piece from a friend about how their cardio increased once they went vegan.

I don’t think I’m going to go vegan, but it does feel pretty conclusive that a plant-heavy diet can help improve energy. I’ll take any benefit I can on this journey to $10K/day, so a plant-based diet sounds great once quarantine is over!

My Day Job

Had a couple of meetings here and other work.

It’s probably quarantine driven, but I don’t feel very excited about the day job. In fact, I  almost feel the frustration growing on a daily basis. I think part of it is because I’m expecting to get laid off due to the quarantine.

So, that’s fun!

Investment real estate

Just standard scrolls here today; no purchases or action.  Rent is due, so we’ll see how many of our tenants actually paid this month,  shall we!

Kindle

No sales and no action, outside of ordering  8 more covers from my cover designer on Fiverr.

Amazon Affiliate Websites

I talked yesterday about how I need to publish roughly 5,000 words a day to stay on pace during this time. I published that many yesterday, and I’m planning on getting that many again today as well!

Consulting

I bid on a few projects and have a pitch call tomorrow so let’s hope that one goes well and lands!

Family

Fiancee time!
