Day 16 : Most stressful days in my entire carrier so far

Finding excuses for not being consequent

One of the most important aspects, on which I have started to write this blog on the first place is to become better at writing.

I noticed that to be good at online marketing, I don’t need necessary be the best in the world in some technical stuff…

But I have to write better, because I can outsource all of the work related with my business, but I can’t outsource the fact that I have to be the head, and face of the operation (maybe I can, but definitely I shouldn’t do that, and I wont).

I see some progress in my writing, and actually writing on this blog start become fun to me…

Maybe I can do a lot more with the graphics on the website, or I can do much more with SEO, but this is not the case…

I want to test myself, and report whole thing in the process.

And back to the case…

I didn’t write a single post in here for 4 days…

Why?

The excuse is that: I have the most stressful days in my entire carrier…

I was integrating the brand new machine for one of my clients, and nothing worked… And I have only 2 days to accomplish the task…

Why I really didn’t write?

Because I didn’t (yet), developed habit of writing here everyday on the same time…

The power of habits

I really see now my weaknesses…

I am only a human, there are times, when I am doing everything no related to the original plan.

Everyone of us have their problems…

Those, which are home related, and those work related…

What I have also noticed in my life (so far) is that, the level of stress can be the same for person which is cleaning their own flat, and turns out there is a really big stain on the wall, and for someone who have 1000 people working for him, and he don’t have enough money to pay all of them in the time.

I have used this comparison to show You one simple fact…

Your stress really is not the end of the world (with some exceptions).

Of course there are times in life, when really someone is hurt, or You have problems with health…

And this could be really something, what can make You depressed…

Other things, are just gaps on the road…

You have to face it, solve it, and deal with it…

The work problems (as main), however shouldn’t be the cause of abandonment working on Your(my)self.

This is the real power of habit.

If You develop a habit, You are just doing it, not finding a excuse, not thinking about that You don’t have time, or oversleep…

Yes, You definitely maybe will have some flue, or really don’t have the possibility to do something as You have planned (like when You are in the plain during 16 hour flight).

But having a habit just minimizes the whole other situations, which You are dealing with.

And this blog is all about exactly this simple thing…

To document the whole journey of mein to become more productive, to become more focused on things, which matter most to me, and to do some more for the world…

And the plan is pretty simple…

I want to develop, and install some habits in my head, to do things, which I know will help me in the long term, and which I have to do everyday to obtain an effect which I wanted in the beginning.

Day 15 : Best business model – automation

I was blind for over 3 years

I am an IT Project Manager in company, which is specializing in Process Automation.

I really like my work, but some times ago I decided that I want something more from my life….

I want to be independent, work when I want, and where I want…

To achieve that, I have to be Entrepreneur…

I am working in Automation, and whole my life I was studying new stuff (programming languages, and systems), to have more knowledge, and do more…

One problem… I have only 24 hours a day, so most of my Projects, and dreams just disappear after while of fighting.

Why?

Because I did not have time, and motivation enough to work on the same thing for enough time…

Solution?

Create a Product, or service, which could Automate whole process…

I can create a Platform, which is giving the tool for the problem, but not solving the problem…

Example?

amazon.com – ebay.com. Why? Because They are just connecting the clients with sellers…

I can do same thing, but connecting the clients with services in specific niche.

Why such an Idea?

I was today reading some blog posts about entrepreneurship…

And it just cam for me…

I don’t have enough time, to actually study everything on my own…

I can outsource the work…

I can always outsource the work, and only be a broker of situation, or service…

I can help bought sides to click for 20% of the income…

Reasonable?

Only have to find the best service, which I can offer.

Today I have oversleep

I have two phones…

Samsung, and iPhone…

I always turn my alarm clock on Samsung…

Always it was a good idea, but…

Today my battery was dead durning the night, and my alarm clock didn’t work…

I wake up 20 minutes before going to work…

And just eat something, and drive…

But did go swimming for 30 minutes after work, so the day wasn’t a total sport disaster.

Day 14 : Back to the routine after 3 days away

My morning routine

When I am at home I am simple having my routine all set…

Waking up, going brushing my teeth, next the water…

And some time for reading, or doing something for my company…

Eating, and at 6 AM driving for the swimming pool… I have 30 minutes to do all the stuff there (so that’s 20 for swimming).

Meditation needs improvement

I need really calm space, to meditate…

Probably it’s crazy that I can’t organize myself to do meditation for 5 minutes each morning…

The problem for me is that I am not focus too much after waking up, and have too less time to prepare myself…

Best time for meditation for me will be probably after swimming (maybe at swimming pool I could just go for toilet for 5 minutes and meditate).

Plans for tomorrow

For the first time I will have free afternoon (after 6 PM).

I do need improve my website…

And I do need get a logo for one of my clients, so there will be some work…

Also…

I need to plan my weekend, and take some steps to actually spend more time in the next week working for myself…

The whole idea of my own business is to work on the beginning, and next automate the whole thing…

So I do need to find a way, how can I automate my business idea…

Day 13 : 18 hours in work, and no time for blogging

9-5 can become 6 AM – 12 PM

I have been all day at work today… Literally, because I have started at 6 AM, finished at 8 PM, and next drive for 4 hours back home…

Yes, I know this is unhealthy… But this is the cost, for better living some day…

Don’t understand me wrong…

I need money for living… So I do have a limited time for other things (like my little projects), but…

The whole internal calm is all about to become more productive in limited time, which I have…

I was at Gym!

I made a simple decision…

I am to tired to think after 12 hours of work… So instead of doing nothing… I want to actually become more thin, and loose some weight…

So that is why I have started my journey with Gym…

Also, because I have free ticket from work every day… So…

You understand me.

Day 12 : Morning posts are much more effective than night ones

Meditation start kicking

I was meditating today (without any other exercises). It took me about 5 minutes…

Because I have decided to actually learn meditation from scratch (don’t know if it is possible to learn meditation).

I took just one post from Zenhabits, and it was worth the deal!

Only 5 minutes focusing on my breathe, and I am much calmer today after that…

Is it coincidence? Maybe… Maybe I just slept well…

But I prefer to think, that meditation really is making the deal…

Plan for today is simple

Go to the Gym for the first time in my life!

Seriously, I am not Gym fan… I prefer team sports like Football, or volleyball…

But, when none from the team wants to participate, I have to be on my own…

And Gym is perfect for that.

After work Gym could make a blast for me…

Probably much better would be, when I kick of in the morning, but unfortunately all of Gyms near place, where I am stationing are closed…

Too much in short time?

Maybe I want to change too much in my life in short period…

I am thinking about my own business, and losing some weight, become much more feet, not wasting time in the mornings…

Most important!

If some of those things is just not kicking out yet… I have to be patient, and work some more…

I have to do as much I can to do all of those routines each morning, and live in the spirit with them all day…

But, if something goes wrong… Or I just simply forget about something, or did not do something…

It doesn’t mean that my routine is over!

This is like, when I was on diet…

It was going well until I just eat the first unhealthy meal…

And all of stuff just went down from this moment…

Because when I eat something wrong once, it means that I have to start from scratch… And I need much more motivation for that, rather than just keep going…

Now it is different.

If I couldn’t just wake up on the time, when I have decided day before… It shouldn’t be the reason for making a failure from it!

It is mistake, because I should be consistent, but I am just simply thinking what goes wrong…

Fix it, and try again the next day!

I am talking about this, because this situation actually have took place today…

I really wanted to wake up at 6 AM, but I just couldn’t and lied on bed till 7…

On 8 I was on my way to work, and actually done nothing on this additional hour….

What can I do better tomorrow.

Go to sleep earlier (maybe 10.30 AM)…

And try to wake up at 5 AM by simple giving my phone out of bed…

I did that couple of times, and it was working…

Day 11 : Yes I am Traveling, but still having habit of writing

Writing everyday 300 words

Thanks to this blog I am able to write every day at least 300 words about my thoughts…

Maybe not all of them are useful for You, but some of them are important to me…

As I am ftraveling today in my Day job I actually made it and, take some time, and went on swimming pool. Maybe I was swimming only or 15 minutes, but I have to say…

After long day of work I feel better after swimming, than when I skip the swimming.

Tomorrow I actually want to go to Gym…

Making decisions

In my work I have to make some decisions related to my team, and tasks, which they should do…

I read today about making decisions in one second.

Who knows better than a guy, who have to know what to do, when a torpedo is going right into his face…

Quick decisions making is something, what I thing I have, and what I want to develop, having more important tasks to deal with in work basis…

Today I write really short… But I acctually did write before the end of the day…

Propably better would be if I write on the beginning, when I am on the making plans stage…
