It’s already almost 7PM and I haven’t done nearly as much for the day as I usually do. Grocery shopping and other things cut into my day and I just didn’t get a lot done. I know that I have a ton of work to do if I want to get a sustainable income going, but really, I’d rather be playing games.
I know that I’ve talked about how you need to take time off and enjoy your life, otherwise all that work is for nothing. It’s easy to work yourself into the ground and be so stressed and tired that you can’t enjoy anything. I do know and believe that, but at the same time, when you’re on a deadline, it’s really hard to justify any kind of downtime.
I’d really rather just kick back and play some video games until dinner, but there is so much that I have to get done. I did manage to do some promoting of my Zazzle shop, while simultaneously talking to people on FaceBook about important things. I promoted something from my Bonanza shop, then I helped make this week’s menu and went shopping. after I put up this post I’ll be doing my 15 Hootsuite posts for the day. I’d also like to make some more progress on the book., and I also promoted several items from
Through all that, I’m thinking about how nice it would be to just switch off and enjoy myself. I really want to, but I don’t think I can right now. Eric was even talking about us taking a three-day weekend, but I’m not sure if I can get my mind right with that. Part of me thinks that I should take some time before I burst from stress, but it’s hard to justify it when I know that I have just 95 days to earn over $8000.
Of course, the more I think about it, the more I want to just say screw it and stop working after I do my Hooting. I might do it. There isn’t a lot of time between now and dinner time. I’m a crazy fast worker, but I really don’t know how much I could get done. Maybe I can compromise. Maybe I’ll work for another hour, then spend an hour playing before dinner. that might be the best thing to do.
And yes, I know that my journal posts get a bit rambly and I’ve been talking about a lot of the same stuff. I’d apologize, but this is life right now. I really want for everything to just take off and start making money so I can relax and get back to being happy and fun and relaxed. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen if I’m sitting on my butt doing nothing. It takes work, and if I’m not doing it, it’s not going to get done.
