I love making big changes to improve my life. But I also enjoy the small things that make your life just a little better every day.
For example, my office is a 10×20’ building on our property. It takes me about 45 seconds to walk across our yard to get there.
It’s not far but it’s just long enough that when my coffee gets cold I have to make a decision… should I just drink this cold or walk all the way back to the house to warm it up?
Since one of my goals with this blog is to document my journey aka “show my work” I guess I should start posting regular reviews/updates more.
I do a Weekly Review so I’m going to experiment with sharing some highlights of that each week.
I’m going more and more analog these days!
And my latest move is back to a physical planner — the Full Focus Planner by Michael Hyatt to be exact.
Mine arrived in the mail earlier this week and I started using it as soon as I got it. It’s not perfect but I’m enjoying it more than all the digital productivity and task management systems I’ve used. Here are some pics:
One of the dangers of coming under the influence of marketing gurus is the temptation to follow their dogmatic ideas without thinking.
For example, many gurus will tell you why “outbound marketing” is dead. And that more sophisticated or progressive marketers will focus on inbound.
They preach a message that essentially says, “It’s wrong to interrupt people with your marketing. The right way to market is to attract people to you.”
I have a bad habit I want to quit.
It’s a habit I noticed a lot of entrepreneurs and freelancers struggle with, which is this: we often stop investing time and energy into what’s proven to work in favor of trying to do something new.
For example, I’ve been working as a direct response copywriter for 6 years now. I know how to drum up new work when I need to because I have a proven prospecting system that works.
