MY CHAT ROOM

LETS BE HONEST!

Some of the things that are important to me, are probably important to you also. We are individuals in so many ways. However, there are also many things that we all have in common with each other.

FOR EXAMPLE – WE ALL ASPIRE TO SOMETHING.

  • Creating a better life
  • Having the perfect relationship
  • Owning our dream car
  • Buying a home

DOESN’T MATTER WHO WE ARE

We all have unanswered questions, about life, about love, about the universe. Sometime we’re afraid to ask. Sometime we’re unafraid and boldly seek out answers.

With that concept in mind, I wanted to create a space to chat. Unfortunately, I am no Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg. So, if you are here reading this and want to have a conversation, leave me a comment about what you would like to read about and I will take up the task!

Bookmark this page so you can come back and we can share thoughts and info.

TOPIC FOR THE DAY

I don’t want to be here. I would rather be playing with my dog or visiting my son or anything but taxing my brain to write something here!

That sounds like every day. That little girl in me really wants to play and blow off being responsible. I can think of a million and one things that I would rather be doing. I am sure you could too.

The upside of this is that I can apply myself and ‘get it done’. If I push myself to truly pay attention and focus on what I have to do, I can probably get it done in a short amount of time. That dedication will open up more time for me to do some of those things that I want to do!

This post ties in well with another page on this site. If getting things done in a timely fashion is problematic, you might want to take a look at it here.

A plan is always a good idea. I am big on lists. Here in Wealthy Affiliate, I have many lists. Some are the same every single day.

  1. Sign into Wealthy Affiliate.
  2. Go to the live link and Check to see if I can help anyone.
  3. Help by answering a few questions.
  4. Post a web post for a review.
  5. Review someone’s webpage and get a credit for each review.
  6. Open the lessons for the day.
  7. Update any posts or pages and plugins that need updating.
  8. Work a minimum of 1-2 hours.
  9. Take a break
  10. Work for 1-2 hours.

At the most, I have worked 4 hours when completing this list. That is way short of a full day. After looking at all I accomplished, I am feeling much better about what I am doing.

Today I had to go sign into my Google account and check my Analytics for my website (that is a free program) to see the statistics on my site. It was cool because I see that all my posts have indexed which means when someone goes to search for something, if it has anything to do with my site, it will come up in a search and people can click on it and go to my webpage. That is awesome! Getting indexed is something that makes us smile a big smile. It is also one of the many many things we learn about and how to do in Wealthy Affiliate.

We don’t just learn how to do it, we learn why we do it and what it does.

A GREAT POINT TO MAKE

This site is mostly about Wealthy Affiliate and how it works and what it can do for anyone who wants to become an online marketer. The great point is understanding what you get as an affiliate in WA.  If you have ever tried to set up a website, you have learned how simple it can be. There is a lot of drag-and-drop sites that are quite easy to put together. If putting them together was the only thing to worry about, that would be awesome.

However, there is so much more to doing business on the internet. Just because you have created a website, doesn’t mean it is going to get viewed on-line.

My comment above about being indexed is the great point to make. I am going to bet you didn’t read anything about indexing your site when you created that very simple website. I am going to bet you didn’t have any idea that it would need to be indexed.

Well, don’t feel bad.  I didn’t know anything about it either.

I do now! And so much more.

AT FIRST, IT LOOKS DIFFICULT AND OVERWHELMING

Much like lots of new learning processes. Remember when you first learned to drive. What seems so simple and second nature now was once very confusing and complicated.

So, like my list above and ‘indexing’ and learning how to drive, everything has a first step. Leave me a comment and we can talk about that first step.

Better yet, check out the review on Wealthy Affiliate, sign up for a free account and we can chat about it in real time – right here in Wealthy Affiliate while you take your first steps to success.

 

 

 

Procrastination And Time Management

Looks A lot Like Chaos

What really drives me crazy is at the end of the day, after I have had such good intentions – I have accomplished absolutely nothing! I started to do ‘stuff’, but then there was the phone call. And then there was that show I have been waiting to see for months. And then I had to stop to eat lunch. Then there was… and there was… and then the day was done. Procrastination and time management is a huge impedance to achieving success at anything.

Now, this is me! I am upset with myself. I had good intentions but was not able to stay focused. I am pounding myself and feeling very unworthy of anything. I feel like I am incapable of succeeding. I can’t focus. I can’t seem to get motivated to do the things I need to do.

This feeling of underachieving now bleeds off into my daily life. Now I am angry with the people around me.  I might even be a bit jealous of others accomplishments. This is a pattern that never leads to anything positive. It is a vicious cycle that we get trapped in BUT it is NOT very difficult to end the cycle.

Unless…

We can make a conscious decision to take action and win this on-going struggle with PROCRASTINATION. Yes, I said it. The dirty word! It is possible to change your actions to be more beneficial to the end goal.

Here Is A List Of Things To Do

  • Make a list
  • Organize the list
  • Check it off as it gets done
  • Praise yourself
  • Relax at the end of the day!
  • Smile because you know you did well

Is it Really That Easy?

Well, if you can convince yourself that you need to follow the list – Yes. If you truly have no ability to get off your butt and do something, maybe it is not simply procrastination. Maybe it is depression or anxiety or some other medical issue that needs to be accessed by proper medical authorities. That is a possibility. But… Don’t use that as an excuse.

A Little Bit Of Hard Truth

Procrastination is a habit. A habit of putting off until tomorrow what you can get done today. It is also a part of that instant gratification problem. I do the hard work tomorrow so I can have fun today.

Then there is the other one. Simply being lazy. Now, there is another habit. If I do that tomorrow, I can play my video games today.

All this is a cycle that is created by actions or I should say Lack of Actions. I know these are not words you like to read. They are truths one must look at and decide if we fit into these categories.

The simple truth is there is a reason we procrastinate. As soon as we figure it out, we will be able to move forward in ways we only dream of.

Being someone that gets things done leaves us with an incredible sense of accomplishment. The ability to create whatever we want in life is an ability we nurture within ourselves.

Take pride in yourself. Be a doer. When you look at that list of things to do, follow it. Number one then number two and so on. Organize the list in such a way where one leads to the next.

If you need to pick up bread, make the next thing on the list something you have to do while in town.  You know the old saying ‘kill two birds with one stone’. I am pretty sure everyone already knows all this stuff. Sometimes we simply need a boot to get our feet in motion.

If you need to change the oil on your car, let the next step be something that can get done while you wait such as pay bills online from the app on your phone. Maybe you need to send notices to someone, do it while you wait. You could simply work on your list for tomorrow. No, I don’t mean copy the list of today for tomorrow.  Remember, we are accomplishing our goals.

Be a Doer. Start your day with something that is going to motivate you to move. A shower, a cup of coffee, breakfast, and a brisk walk.

Take a minute to gift yourself with something that pleases you. A reward for getting out of the house or wherever you have to go or do.

Life Is A Series Of Habits

Like the rock thrown in the pond that creates a ripple, our habits are that ripple.

The big kicker is this is true. Everything we do, we do out of habit. Think about it. Look at the activities you do during the course of your day. How many things do you do that you have done thousands of times before? How many of those things do you do almost without thinking?

It has a ripple effect. Our habits have consequences – good or bad. They all lead to an end game.

If life is a series of habits, then they can be altered to benefit us in some way. A habit can be created by doing something several times until it becomes second nature. So, a bad habit can be recreated by doing the good habit until it is second nature. Like quitting smoking. Going for a walk. Eating healthier food. Cutting down on sugar. Reinventing Yourself!

From Comfort To More

I am going to step out on a limb here and say that chances are you are living a life you did not choose – for the most part. Let me explain…

  • You are working in a job because of the pay – not because it is what you want to do.
  • You feel kind of stuck where you are because the bank account is not big enough to allow you the time to change your plan.
  • You wish you had more time to do the things you love to do.
  • You wish you had more time to spend with your family/friends/partner.
  • You do not believe in yourself enough to take the needed steps to change your circumstances.
  • You do not believe in yourself enough to know you would be a success at something different.

Sound about right? I could go on but I think you get the point. Well, this website is filled with information that can help you look at life from a different perspective. I work diligently to get people to look ‘outside’ the box or to see the cup as half full instead of half empty.

I would like you to take a look around and consider life according to a new set of rules – YOUR RULES. Maybe reading this will help you see things from a different perspective.

Just a Candid Discussion

Is this just a candid discussion? No, it is not. I have a reason for talking to you about this stuff.  I would like to help you change your position in life. I want to share this website with you in hopes that you will decide to join me on that journey to recreating your life.

I am asking you to look around the website here. Read the posts with an open mind and consider your place in the world. When you are done, I am hoping you will see the benefit in joining me to create your Prosperity. Please, leave a few words if you feel inspired, or not. I would love to hear from you and share with you how you can change your situation from where it is now, wherever that is – to something more.

I will see you on the other side.
