Prioritizing Dreams and Blogging

ball-1786430__4801276792905.jpg

Hello friends!

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting… but then, I doubt your daily life revolves around my posts, so probably not ­čśë

Over the holidays, I stumbled across a video with a few tips by Tim Ferris… then I sought out a few more… and eventually ended up buying his audiobook The 4 Hour Work Week.

Now I had actually heard of this book before, but in all honestly scoffed at the idea that many people could get away with working only 4 hours a week unless they had racked up some serious passive income streams. Basically, I thought that it would never work for me (I hang my head in shame at this now).

Coming back to where I stopped posting…

There were many good (and FRESH) points to take from these resources, and the one which stopped me in my tracks with this blog, was a tip around prioritising when you have many tasks to do that day. He said if you have 10 things to do on a particular day, evaluate them and see if you can find one or more that will either make doing this task faster later on, or will actually in fact make this task redundant…

I write this blog because I hope to prod people along into achieving their goals also. It was my hope that if I could pull the curtain on what it takes to achieve your wildest dreams (because they actually DO NOT happen overnight), that I could show people that yes it’s hard work but it’s hard for everyone, and it’s soo worth it.

Now couldn’t I also do this by spending my writing time on achieving my goals, creating financial and personal freedom for myself and then spend some of my newfound time on doing exactly this? It stopped me in my tracks, I had to re-evaluate, and re-calibrate.

I had almost decided that I would have to move on and use the time I would have spent blogging, on chasing my dreams, BUT I kept getting notifications of new likes and followers and honestly I just couldn’t do it. SO, here’s my compromise to myself… I will ‘batch’ write my blog posts all at once in the weekends, and schedule them so that I am still putting out fresh content just about every day (if not actually every day!). This will help save overall total writing time, and keep my limited free hours during the week for daily dream chasing! I will be a bit more flexible with the content I put out however… I am ditching the designated daily topics and freestyling it!

Hopefully this will not only help me keep up interest when writing a week’s worth of blog posts at once, but will help keep things from becoming boring for YOU, my reader! Obviously I want to create content that stokes that fire inside you and makes you want to keep on chasing your own dreams… otherwise the whole purpose of this blog is redundant…

I’m so glad to be back and with a clearer focus!

Much love…

Blog Update: Let’s Do This!

With the 90 Day Commitment Challenge tidied up, I’ve decided that I still want to write every day (if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing every day right?), but with a bit more variety!

I want each day ┬áto have it’s own flavour, from the classic Motivational Monday, through to something a bit more unique.

I haven’t quite nailed all of them down, but there’s no point dilly-dallying around until I have it all figured out, because if life has taught me anything so far, it’s that if you wait til you have it all figured out, nothing will ever happen.

SO, without further adieu, this is what I’ve decided to roll with:

Motivation Monday: Profiles on motivational people and concepts

Try Tuesday: I love to learn about, and try new things, so this should be a bit of fun at the beginning of the week!

Work in Progress (WIP) Wednesday: Progress in goals and various projects

Thirsty Thursday: Dreams, goals, and all out primal needs

Freestyle Friday: Whatever. I. Want to write about!

Sass and Grind Saturdays: Attitude and mindset

Soul Sundays: Thoughts to feed the soul, wind up the week, and prepare for another week doing it all again!

Any other ideas? Comments? Feedback?

I’m excited for these new adventures! Let’s do it!

Day 75: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

Day 75 was a pretty busy one! I got a heap of stuff done around the house, and finished the night off at work. I also filmed the entire day with the intention of uploading a vlog this morning, but when I opened up the files, I realised I’d run out of memory on my way home, which was the highlight of the whole night, with a discussion a really positive lady who made my night!

The people you choose to be around affect your mood and energy, but you get to choose whether the people around you are ones that affect you positively or negatively. This goes for day-to-day interactions as well as your inner circle!

I hope you’re squeezing every drop out of your day today!
