I am a bit lost about where to from here..which way is forward?
I was going well during December but finding since the Christmas holiday break..that I have lost my way a bit in regards to what are the things to keep moving forward. I am sure that I am not any different to many others..it’s not a nice feeling..like being lost in a maze…again!
I have broken one of the cardinal rules from Alex Jeffreys..in what he has been teaching us (Alex’s Students) about planning your day, your month, your year. Taking a bit of time off over the holidays seems to of broken the flow, line of thinking and unfortunately “Planning” and “Doing / Acting”. It is really frustrating, I just don’t seem to be able to get myself turned back around and pointing my nose in the right direction.
I have also joined a number of sites..got involved in the conversations and reading the sites, etc. and guess what before I know it 2,3, 4 hours have gone by and I haven’t done what I had planned to do… feel like kicking the wall but I would get into trouble for that! Alex said..not get caught up with answering emails and other peoples hipe, just stick to your plan…well..I got a big 0 out of 10 for this at the moment.
I have to get my head back around and start being more focused and disciplined about what I want to do during the day…can hear Alex in my ears here. Back to planning, I know it, got to get back to just doing it, maybe I should kick myself in the butt rather than the wall.
Hopefully this is the silver linning in the cloud…just get back on track and get moving again and be clear on what I want to do for the day..
Beware…I know its an old cliche..but don’t do what I have done…do what Alex’s said..
Cheers for now…Paul
Hello Paul, Sorry to see you are having so many problems. Hope you have made some headway in getting them sorted. I am sure there will be a lot of offers of help from the students, there always seems to be somebody who can help with a particular problem.
This is my first visit to your site, I am going round all of Alex’s students blogs and great they all are.
If you have the time I would appreciate a visit to my site, and perhaps a comment. Thanks in anticipation.
Firstly I hope you are well and yeah, I totally understand your current situation as I’ve been through it a few of times earlier this this month and during Christmas. Like you said, sometimes you can just get carried away too much hence I’ve cut back on my blogging and re-organised my schedule completely.
Also I found out that by spending some time, thinking and looking back on module 1 notes about focusing – it sorta helped me re-focus again, maybe you could try and plan one or two x 1 hr blog/website visiting session etc… each day?
Anyway all the best
Hi Paul and Nigel..
Thanks for stopping by and yes I am working through the issues I have been having…a lot slower than what I really want but thats life as they say.
I think I am getting from “Not knowing what I don’t know” and have progressed to “Knowing what I don’t know”….and overall it is painfully slow!
I appreciate your thoughts and yes I agree there are a lot of fellow students who are there to help…and I will have to go and ask.
Nigel…I agree I have to spend more time going around more and looking at other sites…there is so much info there that is really good..sometimes its one of just staying on one site and getting the maximum amount out of them…thanks again.
Best wishes to you both…Paul
I’m still going to other students’ blogs. It takes time… so a few per day. My main focus all week has been getting ALL the students’ videos in one showcase on dedicated pages on my blog. Yours is in now, with a link to your blog. You can see them on SharpMarketingMethod dotcom. I loved your big effort. Well done! Must have taken a while. Perhaps you could make a post on how it was achieved?
So now we all have to re-focus, revise our plans and take action. I’m still trying to discover traffic methods, which will be what I’ll post about soon. I haven’t done any article submissions or press releases yet. Lots to do! This is my first visit to your blog and t looks great. You are welcome to visit mine if you can spare the time. I thought you sounded like an Aussie? (I’m in Byron Bay hinterland.) I’ll add you to my student list. Would you add me to yours? Thanks, cheers, Gaielle.
Thanks Gaielle for stopping by and yes you are right I am an Aussie too.
You are in a beautiful part of the country, its been a while since I have been up to Byron Bay but I remember it being a very relaxing and scenic spot..
Lucky you to be in such a spot..I am down in Melbourne (The Big Smoke) in the South Eastern area only a few minutes to the beach.
I was walking along the beach today with my wife and I mentioned that I need to put a video together showing the spot..I think its one of the best I have seen around the world and should let others see it…looks like I have half convinced myself to do it..
Catch up with you again soon…best wishes…Paul
I miss Melbourne. I lived there for 20 years. I’m flying down in March for about a week and staying near Frankston and perhaps a few days on the peninsula. Maybe we should catch up for a coffee and chat!
I lived In Dromana for 5 years and Mordialloc for a year before moving to Byron Bay with my job 6 years ago. Unfortunately, my boss retired & sold his business to a Brisbane company, which left me jobless. Online business is my best hope now (at my age!).
Do make that video. You’ve inspired me to think about doing something similar too.
All the best,
Hi Gaielle…would be great to catch up..will send you an email with contact details..best regards…Paul
