week 42/52 overall rating :: 8. There is some frustration, but there is mostly joy. I need a little more fun in my life.
So yes, on Sunday night I drew up my first routine. This is it on the wall of my new office (bedroom), just before I filled it in…
I’m going to fill it in afresh every Sunday evening. It’s already proven very effective in motivating me and I have lots of ideas for organising myself better, and pushing myself more in the areas I need to be pushed. Plus every Sunday before I rub it off, I can take a photograph of my week – as timetabled and annotated on my wall – which I can then file away until such a time as it is required for my memoirs, which will be in great demand. Seriously. If Donald Trump has taught me anything, it’s to be massively unrealistic as often and as vocally as possible. And you’ll see. Over the next couple of years, this website is going to explode. It’s going to be huge!
Anyway, yes, I managed to get a lot done this week.
The copywriting business I’m in the process of setting up now has a name. Once again, I have Donald Trump to thank. It’s called The Best Words Online. It’ll be an experiment with making money on entirely my own terms. We’ll see how it goes, but I feel hopeful.
At the moment I’m busy trying out different themes and getting an idea of what the site will be, and what it won’t be (see below). All it really needs though, is to be functional. (And fun.) And I want to have made some pitches on the back of it by the end of the month.
What else? Not much to be honest. I’ve been organising myself.
I’ve got a lot of work to do and I’ve just got to get on with it.
I’ve also got a lesson starting in a moment.
I bought a clock today. Because time is of the essence. And on the way to buy the clock, I took the photo at the top of the page. Autumnal…
Oh, and I spent at least five hours making this on Sunday…[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGtY2xsO_Cs]
The reason being I need to beef up my video skills for new site. Exciting times. It’s gonna be huge.
Anyway, how are you? You look fucking great actually, if you don’t mind me saying. How are you feeling?
