The Math on Building a Website Worth $250,000

I’ve been reflecting on purpose and meaning this week, as mentioned in my previous post. Recently, I’ve felt trapped in a never-ending cycle of earning money just to pay bills and debts, with no end in sight.

What’s troubling me most is the endless nature of my circumstances. Deep down, I can’t see myself doing this for another 20-30 years. The main issue is feeling trapped; I can’t stop working because the bills will never stop coming.

How do I truly live life to the fullest?

I felt compelled to share these thoughts, not seeking feedback but rather to release them into the Universe.

On Wednesday, I attended the funeral of a young woman, a friend of my girlfriend’s, who was only 28 years old. Beyond the overwhelming sadness of the occasion, a particular thought emerged and has continued to trouble me.

Week of March 25 Recap: Building Integrity & Self-awareness

Think the two big lessons for me so far on this coaching journey are:
– Integrity: We’ve spoken about this, and I absolutely need to live up to my word. I plan on having a notepad next to me to track every commitment, ensuring I follow through. I need to improve with clients in particular – I’m not proud of my performance there.
– Realistic commitments: I think my struggles with integrity stem from good intentions but unrealistic goals. Instead of taking the time to plan for success (especially with clients), I commit and think “I’ll make it happen”. I need to be much more mindful.

February 7, 2024 Daily Reflection – Finding My Groove

I haven’t done these in a bit. I had an amazing week last week productivity-wise, and this week is also starting off really well. I’ve just been focused on important client deadlines and have lost touch with the bigger picture, partly from not doing these exercises, so I wanted to get back into it. However, I’m thinking of maybe only doing it three times a week, at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end. Doing this daily might not be the best use of my time.

Reflections on Being an Unsuccessful High Performer

I started reading “Beyond High Performance” yesterday, a book by the founder of a coaching firm where my former personal coach is now a partner.

The definitions of High Performance he used really took me aback. It was like a light went on in a dark room for the very first time, and all of a sudden, everything just made complete sense.

I’m not wired like everyone else. I didn’t fully grasp that before.

January 3, 2024 Daily Reflection – Getting Back On Track

Today was pretty good. I managed to work for three hours – not as much as I’d like, but still productive. The afternoon included a dentist appointment, and the day wrapped up nicely with dinner with a friend. I feel like I’m getting back on track, especially since today was a significant improvement over yesterday. I’m optimistic about moving in the right direction.
