Break Watch – Jan 1

General Thoughts

I took the day easy with some over-sleep and Overwatch. Sundays are my break days fitness wise but I do want to work towards a couple of hours of practice towards my current mid-term goal. This first goal is working on loci and memory palace.

I’m currently considering a task or item to complete in the timeframe of a week or weeks is a short-term goal, a months time scale a mid-term goal and a 6 months to a year a long-term goal and see how that goes for me.

Thoughts On the book I’m currently reading

I’m currently reading “How to Read a Book”. Currently in the section about Active reading and writing in a book to properly get the most out of the book. While I do see the benefits of doing so, writing, highlighting or marking my books seems so wrong. As I mentioned in my last post, I plan on using my bullet journal to take notes on the book and transcribe any I feel strongly about to this blog.


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.

    Diet Log

    I did really well all day until about 2 hours after my last meal. I had some cheese with crackers. I should have drunk water or went to sleep earlier. I did get to sleep too late last night.
