Reach the Deadline! – Jan 5

General Thoughts

Today we had a client who has a trade-show next week and came to us needing his artwork yesterday :/. Today was a race against the clock. The artwork was simple – the tough part is the saving of the files and getting them to him. Being that they’re graphics for trade-show booths, each panel takes 15 min to save.

Something that should be 10 minutes takes 3 hours while you’re sitting there, essentially watching water boil, while you’re boiling over with stress. You know you need this water boiled already but there’s no way to make it go any faster.

I did try and make the best use of that time stewing in stress watching the load bar by getting some Duolingo done. I’m going to make it a point to complete at least two modules a day.

Thoughts On the book I’m currently reading

Haven’t gotten any further at the moment


I’ve made little progress so far, but am on my way.

Current Long Term Goal and Progress

My current long-term goal is to get my business into the position to hire a new employee by July. In order to achieve this, I need to focus on at least $2,500 a week in new business.

In order to to reach this point, I will be ramping up our marketing which is now possible with the completion of a new website for us. This involves publishing a new blog post on a weekly basis, an increase in social posts and seriously utilizing our email blast list.

I have a couple of short term goals in order to step closer towards this.

While I do believe $2,500 in new business is an achievable and fair goal, I do see this first week as a challenge considering many business owners will be slow to get back up on their feet from the holiday break.

I also want to work on the design of this blog but am not going to currently worry about it – sorry.

Current Mid Term Goal and Progress

I currently have 3 mid-term goals:

Improve my Ability at using Memory Palace

I have a half an hour in my daily schedule for practice and 3 hours on the weekend. No progress just yet.

Get Rid of Half of My Shit

I need to setup an ebay store and start going through my crap. I have an hour this weekend for this.

Journaling / Improve my Handwriting

This here counts as my journaling. To kill two birds with one stone, I’m really looking to use my Bullet Journal as an excuse to improve my hand-writing. I’ll be taking it slow and taking the time to not make it look like chicken scratch.

eCommerce Site

Work on the facade of one of our eCommerce sites.
