Getting started at something new is always the hardest part. It’s something I constantly struggle with, no matter what the task is. The first time you attempt to do something new, you generally suck at it. Now I realise that part of getting good at something is being able to accept that when you start you are going to suck at it, but that it is going to make it feel all the more awesome once you get better at it.
This year, I’m taking things a little bit differently. Instead of making a list of goals for the entire year, my plan is to focus on setting smaller monthly goals working towards my big primary focus for the year – becoming a better version of myself.
You know how some days you just have one of those days where all of a sudden everything seems to be pushing against you. It feels like the world is against you and that no matter what you do, another hit is going to come at you from out of nowhere. Yesterday afternoon turned into one of those days for me.
When I first started learning about passive income streams, I didn’t really know much about what the options were here, so I’ve put together this guide to summarise everything I’ve learnt so far, as well as my experience with each.
For the last week I’ve been wanting to work on my book, but I haven’t actually got as far as sitting down and doing any of the work. Each day I make up excuses of things I ‘just need to do first’ before I can start the task, but then at the end of the day I still haven’t made any progress.
Have you ever had one of those days where a bunch of things happen and it’s like everything is falling into place? Today was one of those days for me. So I’ve decided to write about it, because days like this are awesome, and if we could recreate them just imagine what could happen…
A few nights ago, before going to sleep, I thought to myself. If I was to not wake up tomorrow, would I have any regrets. Now before I go too deep into this, I want to mention that this isn’t something I ask myself a lot, probably once every few months. The last time I asked myself the only regret I had was not having kids yet. But this time I found myself thinking of more things that I’d regret not getting to do.
Normally when I write a blog post, I know what I want to write about and I try to focus on that and only that. But instead with this post I have no idea what I want to write about. Ok, time to be honest – I’m really just lying to myself here. I know what I want to write about, I just wasn’t going to do it because I was trying to make myself feel less like a big kid and more like a responsible adult. But you know what, gaming has actually made my work life more productive, so I think that is worth writing about.
One of the things that I’m learning at the moment, as part of this journey, is that if you let yourself, each day you can and will learn more then you thought possible. More about yourself, and more about what you need to do to get there.
Just when I think I know what I want, or that I’ve figured out what my big dream is, I learn something else, and that opens up my mind to a whole new world of possibilities.
I read something really interesting today. Something that I could relate to personally, and that I felt everyone in the entire world needed to know.
