"Stop fucking around"
How far can you go with a 100% push daily? What about hourly?
Accomplishing one big thing towards your goals is nice, but how about doing 8 things, one per hour, that push towards your long-term and short-term goals?
I've gotten into a slump, comfortable a bit too much, in the last several months. So I talked to the team and want to do something a bit different for November and December goal threads. I'm going to challenge myself, and challenge YOU to do at least 1 thing to 8 things, that push towards your long-term and short term goals.
An I'm not talking "busy work" or things that you normally do, I'm talking about doing activities in addition to what you are currently doing, what currently makes you comfortable therefore moving outside your comfort zone drastically.
If you attempt this how far do you think you can push your business, your health, your well-being, and the things that are important to you in the next 60 days or so (Until 2019).
What I'm going after is a radical transformation to shock the system - My whole internal system, workflow, communication flow, and overall well-being. Will I succeed, don't know, but we'll find out. I'm going to be posting daily goals, objectives, and the serious things that got accomplished towards my goals.
I hope to make sure it's always a variety of things, and not just "coding XYZ" - which it's been for the last several months for SERPWoo. The objectives have to move the needle - even a nano-meter.
November is a special month for digital marketers due to it being the month most people make the most profits. We got Thanksgiving Week, Black Friday, Thanksgiving Weekend, Cyber Monday - people are just literally making up names for days/weeks to sell their goods now-a-days, but it's working. Anyways - now it's time for us to get to serious work!
Make sure you review your October 2018 Goals and check off what you accomplished and reflect on any failures - it's time to harp in on those overall 2018 goals and see what you can do to bring it home.
And remember @Satvrn's words of wisdom: "Stop fucking around"
P.S. One of the biggest motivations for my long-term goals is to make sure when I'm 60, 70, 80, or 90 years old - #1 I can walk and be active, but #2 that me and my wife aren't going to be bagging groceries (if that's still a job) in our senior years. A lot of people simply don't think that far ahead, they barely think 5 or 10 years ahead and ask what they want for themselves. Most people don't think past next week or next paycheck, that constant living on the edge won't scale well in the digital realm.
I cannot for certain say that in 10-15 years I'll be able to make a living on the internet, it changes so rapidly and so fast, it's hard to barely keep up. Will I even have the energy or motivation to try and figure things out?
So I have to grind extra harder now, save up more money now, and invest wisely now, so in the future I won't have to worry as much about where my next meal is coming from.
So if you don't have long-term or short-term goals - or ANY goals, NOW is the time to sit down and ask yourself what you want from this world and how do you plan on getting it. And when you are give then choice of doing some activity - ask yourself whether it aligns with your goals or not. If you have no goals, you'll be like a leaf blowing in the wind, it'll be taken any and everywhere that external forces dictate.
