The Last Day

Good Morning by amazingly wonderlific readers! Why am I so excited today? Why it’s the last day of course! The last day to finish all my February Goals! Here, Have a rundown of my progress:

  • Finish the Videos that are Over-Due for my Youtube (2 out of 4 edited and uploaded!)
  • Continue doing the Weekly Goals (Making Progress!)
  • Continue the 30-Day Challenge (Been doing every day!)
  • Come up With my Absolute PUSH Goal (Just need to write it down!)
  • Create Five Product Outlines (One down, four to go!)
  • Choose my First Product (Picked!!)

I have been doing so great so far! I know based on tomorrow’s events that I most likely will be unable to finish everything, but I’ll get most of it done, and for starting these goals about a week ago? I’d say I’m doing well!

1. What am I excited about today?
I am super mega ultra excited for finishing most of the things on that list! I’m also excited to see my friend today.

2. What am I grateful for?
Drafts. Autosaving drafts. I was able to start part of some other posts and such last night and since I’m so busy today it was just so awesome to know I could do a little work and not have it go to waste.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
Firstly, the thirty day challenge. Secondly, I’m going to get done the scripts for the next two videos. Thirdly, I’ll finish the product outlines. Honestly, if I complete all of this I will be more than content. And of course tomorrow you get to see the March Monthly Goals!

So my little task list includes:
1. Running errands with my parents
2. Product Steps Outlining
3. Facebook Page Post Backlog
4. FLYing/Weekly Goal
5. Write Down Absolute Push Goal

Have a Productive Day!

Two Days Left!

So I’m going to be a little stressed today (wow I need to calm down) because I need to finish my February Goals. For those of you that are wondering, my February Goals Are:

  • Finish the Videos that are Over-Due for my Youtube
  • Continue doing the Weekly Goals
  • Continue the 30-Day Challenge
  • Come up With my Absolute PUSH Goal
  • Create Five Product Outlines
  • Choose my First Product

Now, are any of these done? Nope. But a lot of them are close. I just need to edit for the overdue videos. The weekly goals is a continued process. I’ve been doing the thirty day challenge every day. My absolute PUSH goal depends on my choosing of the first product. I have no products outlined yet. However, I have a list of products that I will eventually do.

If you think that’s intense, just wait until you see March’s goals, which I will be posting on the first of March for all to see. And then April is even “worse.” But that’s because it’s my product launch month.

Anyways,

1. What am I excited for today?
Well, because of the above, I get to make a lot of important decisions today and it makes me excited because as soon as I choose that first product and I create those product outlines… I’ll finally feel like I am an entrepreneur. Like I’m no longer a dreamer, I’ll be a doer! (I mean, I’ll still be a dreamer, but I won’t just be the dreamer that sits on her bed in her parent’s house, imagining a better life, I’ll be creating.)

2. What am I grateful for today?
I am so grateful for tomatoes today. That sounds a little weird, but try this: Add diced tomatoes to your eggs while they’re in the fry pan and let them cook just until they’re warm. (So add them when your eggs are almost fully cooked. Or you can cook the tomatoes separately and add them to your eggs if you find it difficult with over easy eggs…) It’s really delicious and I feel that good flavor helps make the morning better.

3. What am I absolutely going to accomplish today?
Well, I am definitely going to choose the first product. I’ll have at least one video up to my youtube. And I’ll have my five product outlines. (Because that’s the first step in choosing which product will be first.)

Also, just as a side note, I’ll be sure to post my “Brand Plan” after I’ve started the launch of a product under said brand.

Until then, here is my little business motto/mission:
– To Give People a Higher Quality of Life, Give Them the Tools and Ideas to Succeed, and Help Them to Combat Their Fears, Limitations, and Anxieties.

Alright, My little List for the Start of My Day:
1. Weekly Goal Work
2. Narrow Down Product List to Seven Ideas
3. Video Editing!!
4. Choose 5-10 METHODS of delivering Product Ideas
5. Organizing

You’re All Super Amazing! Have a Productive Day!

The Factor

Good morning!
Yesterday was pretty neat. I accomplished most, but not all again, of the things I wanted to do. It appears I have a rather interesting problem.

There is a factor that whenever present adds about ten times the stress, anxiety, and negativity. I can do nothing to remove the factor – it is out of my control. I, of course, need to figure out how to get around the factor.

How many of you have a factor like this? They’re certainly unpleasant. But just know that when you start to gain more and more success, some of these factors will indeed be at least semi-removable, or slightly more controllable. You just have to get there first.

1. What am I excited for today? (Remember, if you’re excited for something during the day, you’ll be more productive throughout it.)
I am excited for… playing some card and board games with my boyfriend. It’s fun stuff.

2. What am I grateful for today?
Today I am grateful for freezers. Without them, we wouldn’t have as many vegetables at my house. We get some fresh green beans every now and then and what we don’t eat within a day or two can be frozen for later use. I like to fry them with my eggs.

3. What am I absolutely going to accomplish today?
Well, I’m yet again going to say that I absolutely need to get the videos done. Just one done editing and on to uploading. Also, I’m going to defragment my computer tonight. It needs it. I already did the thirty day challenge and I even completed my exercise, so I just need to do my writing prompt stuff.

Task List of soon to-do’s:
1. Writing Prompt
2. Laundry
3. Video Editing
4. Go for a walk
5. Help family out with the storage locker.

Have a productive day!

Struggling Past the Negativity

Some days it’s just really hard to get past the negativity. Like, you wake up okay but within an hour you’re just wondering how long before you can just go to bed again.

Today is a little bit like one of those days.

But it’s my job to pull through it. I created a schedule/to-do list last night that’s full of positivity. I should be able to utilize it. Even when things are tough you have to pull through. Sure, you can have a day of just laying down and doing nothing once in awhile, but when you can be sure to fight through it. You’ll be victorious.

I already had a lay down and not deal with anything day recently, and I was a lot more stressed than I am now, so I’m going to conquer this day like nobody’s business.

Yesterday I almost completed everything. I did my work out, did my writing prompt, watched and participated in that day’s thirty day challenge, but I wasn’t able to upload a video. Not yet anyways. What I was able to do is record two videos and start the editing on one of them. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.

1. What am I excited for today?
Well, I can’t wait to know what this week’s challenge is. Also, I’m excited to be posting a new video today for people to watch. I’m going to finish the edit and upload it! 

2. What am I grateful for?
My self-proclaimed “chill pills” that keep my anxiety in check would be one. It’s Natrol’s 5-HTP for those wondering. I am also grateful for bed making. You never realize how much more awesome and comfortable beds look when they’re made. Also, cats on made beds look more adorable. Just an opinion here, but based on the adorableness sprawled out on my bed right now.

3. What am I absolutely going to accomplish today?
Well, today I’m going to finish the video, for one. That means finish editing, and also upload it. I am going to do my writing prompt, I’ve already done the 30 day challenge and the workout. I’m also definitely going to get this week’s challenge card drawn.

My Five First Things To-Do
1. Finish Writing my Ten Main Goals (as seen in the thirty day challenge.)
2. Reply to important emails
3. Make my Lemony Water
4. Twitter Writing Prompt
5. Khan Academy

6 More Days Including Today

Of February. Of time to complete my February Goals… All of which I made yesterday, of course.

You see, I turned 20 years old on the 17th and was distraught that in my eyes I had accomplished nothing. It was then that I realized I hadn’t accomplished nothing, I had just been in the observation stage of my life. I had been observing and analyzing and researching. What did I do at 19?

I began looking into my idea of being a business person through a finer scope.

I selected mentors. (Chalene Johnson, Brendon Burchard, and Alex Sheen.)

I started my 52 resolutions that I’ve been mostly finishing each week.

I began my youtube videos.

So, honestly, I do have stuff to show for being 19. Always, Always, Always look at what you’ve done and don’t take it for granted. Look at what you’ve accomplished! Have you finished a class? Have you aced your finals? Have you even STARTED a project? Have you EVEN started a LIST of projects you could be doing? That is still an accomplishment.

Just remember to take that next step forward.

1. What am I excited for Today?
Recording some of my videos, actually. It’s about time I put more stuff up!

2. What am I grateful for?
My friend who gave me tennis shoes before she left for another state. Mine were falling apart and these ones are great! I feel so much more productive wearing tennis shoes (A Flylady Secret,) and it makes jogging much easier.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
So Brendon suggest three to five things to do, but I’ve been failing at that and I now realize why… they’re too big! I need to break them down. If I said, upload a video to youtube… That’s three things right there! I need to practice my script, record the video, and edit it as well! And then hook up the computer to Ethernet so I don’t slow everyone in my family down and THEN, do the actual uploading.
Which, by the way, is today’s thing. That and my usual daily things such as the thirty day challenge and my twitter writing post. I’ve already done my exercise! Whoopee!

With that, My List of Five for this Morning:
1. 30 Day Challenge! Right smack at the top! (And the best part is, I’ll be watching the video while eating breakfast!)
2. Respond to Emails
3. Twitter Writing Prompt
4. Laundries and Folding
5. Weekly Goal

Have a spectacular morning!

The Death of the Cord

So I have an iPad mini that I use for a lot of my productivity stuff. Like every morning I’ll do these posts on my iPad. So, the cord that I use to charge said mini? It’s toast. Which makes me about 2 hours late for all the stuff I wanted to do this morning. I’ll probably post about that more on my personal blog.

So yesterday I attempted schedule making and am continuing it today. It’s really hard at first to follow a schedule, especially when you’ve been out of that word for a little over a year.

I ended up not completing loose end number one and two. Why didn’t I? It had something to do with my priorities. You see, I don’t feel like I should have to take care of them. They don’t really do anything for me and are kind of liabilities. So I did some thinking yesterday and compromised with myself.

I’ll skip number two altogether and just finish number one. And more importantly, if I’m going to procrastinate on such things, I might as well procrastinate on them with other things from my to-do list. At least that way I accomplish something even if it’s not the ugliest frog.

1. What am I excited for today?
Getting the last of my loose ends done and over with! Oh, and maybe posting some more stuff onto my youtube.

2. What am I grateful for?
I never thought I’d say this, but apple. I am grateful for their cloud and the ease of transferring things between devices. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Windows 7 laptop, but when it comes to tablets I guess I’m kind of an apple gal. At least for now.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
Well, I’m going to finish up the loose end, and I’m also going to upload a video to my youtube, because I need to be on top of that. I already finished the 30 day challenge for the day and have realized I REALLY need to rethink my PUSH goal. For those of you who don’t know what the thirty day challenge or a PUSH goal is, here’s a link. I recommend you check it out!

On that note, here’s part of my schedule, which as I said, I am behind on.
1. Clear Room Space (So I can exercise!)
2. Exercise and do Working It Out Blog Post
3. Some Loose End Work
4. Twitter Writing Prompt!
5. Create Video To-Do List

Keeping it Productive!

Maybe a Schedule Will Work?

Good morning!
So I didn’t post anything yesterday… Or the day before… So on the 19th it was my mom’s birthday and we went to the mall and had fun. Then yesterday I had an anxiety attack and ended up spending almost the entire day in bed. Yup.

So today I’ve decided I might try to use a schedule, because hey, maybe a schedule will work to help me out. Who knows?

1. What am I excited about today?
Hopefully tying up my last two loose ends! Oh, and Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Challenge of course.

2. What am I grateful for?
Today I am grateful for… My mom. She brought me tea a couple days ago and I’m just trying it out now. It’s yummy and making my morning a little bit easier. I’m also grateful for my “secret” food stash that I have specifically for when nothing else in the house looks yummy.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
Well, both of my ends to tie are pretty large projects so I’m going to say I’ll complete one of them today. Plus the thirty day challenge. And also… Today I’ll remember to do the writing prompt and my exercise. Yay!

So the first couple things on my schedule are:
1. 30 day challenge
2. Loose end number 1
3. Next week’s challenge picking
4. Loose end number 2
5. Writing prompt!

Are you all excited? I’m excited. I’ll probably hibernate in my room while I do most of this stuff because we just had a mini blizzard outside and because everything in the kitchen and living room is causing me distractions.

Have a productive day!
