Everyone Needs More Discipline

Yesterday I watched a video sent to me by Brendon. It was from Mel Abraham, and it was about what he called “The 4D’s.”

One of these D’s was discipline. Discipline is something so often missing from our lives, and the lives of the people we know. Discipline is the difference of the project being started and the project being completed. It is the difference between motivation and determination.

Discipline is the reason why the people with entitlement issues truly fail. It’s not so much that they expect a great paying job. It’s that they expect a great paying job right out of college without doing any work for it. Without spending time working towards that goal.

Here are three ways to work on your discipline. First, make a schedule or checklist for what you need to complete today. Only include what you are absolutely committed to finishing. Secondly, reward your accomplishments. If you do finish something and then just move on to the next thing, you’re less likely to finish it because it seems less important. Thirdly, focus on starting a project on time, rather than finishing it. For some of you, this seems counterintuitive, but if you’re able to start things on time, you’re able to make progress in it. It will also help you learn time management by showing you how much time something really needs.

On to the productivity questions!

1. What are you excited about today?
Trying the whole “just work on starting the task” thing. It’s a constant problem of mine, and this concept is actually a little new to me but I’m going to give it a go. New things are exciting.

2. What are you grateful for today?
I am grateful for sites like elance and mturk. They help out so much on both sides of work, both doing and delegating.

3. What are you absolutely going to do today?
I am going to organize my bedroom, finish a book I’m reviewing, and finish filling out my indiegogo profile.

My little list:
1. Read at least 3 more chapters of the review book.
2. Create a Poetic Meditation Transcript
3. Start organizing the room.
4. Finish a weekly goal’s task.
5. Research CD production places to call for a quote.

Have a happy PI day!

Combating the Bitterness

I’m really glad I started doing this. This being the blog, the business, the product launch… The whole entirety of my recent projects, basically.

I had a terrible wake-up again. I got out to the kitchen and just wanted silence. It did not happen. I found myself thinking about bitter things. A past person was in my dream and I thought with bitterness on the lack of communication. I thought on the dishes and how I’ve been doing them about half an hour every morning and how honestly there shouldn’t be a pile to even do in the morning. And then more bitterness came out.

This is when a few unique thoughts came into my mind. “I have no idea what to write for this, I just shouldn’t write anything.” And then “but what will that do for your day, you can just write about how terrible your morning is.” And lastly, and most amazingly “but that wouldn’t be fair to your readers. Your job is to provide uplifting and motivational content. Stuff they can learn and grow from. Things that make them think.”

And with that it was a little easier to deal with my morning.

The law of attraction. What you think will come to you. Sure, a little effort is required to bring it, but not as much effort as it would had you not thought about it. Which is why I’m glad I started doing this. Not only has this potentially helped others, but it is most definitely helping me.

Remember to stay positive. Even when the world just makes you want to collapse back in bed.

On to zee questions!

1. What am I excited about today?
I’m hanging out with peoples today.

2. What am I grateful for today?
Breathing exercises. Breathing to calm oneself down.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
Write out a one week full out plan for what I need to accomplish, finish the upload of a video, and work on some beats.

And my little list:
1. Interact on facebook as professional page
2. Send response and review to guy on book
3. Brainstorm list of websites to connect with google+
4. Backlog
5. Write out a one week plan

Namaste.

Rough Start

So my laptop decided it was going to give me problems today. It’s a good thing I got a new charger for my iPad mini. Because now I’m currently unable to use my laptop. :/ Hopefully I’ll get it to work later because I have some important files on it, and laptops are a lot easier to use for me than tablets. Either way I’m going to end up saving up for a new laptop pretty quick here.

Yesterday I was relatively successful. I didn’t finish everything. But I got pretty close. That made me happy.

My March Goals are:
– Continue Weekly Goals
– Finish the Thirty Day Challenge
– Finish Product Final Outline
– Figure Out Launch Logistics
– Create Actual Products
– Create a Kickstarter Campaign and/or Go Fund Me
– Write Scripts for the Value Videos and Sales Video
– Research How to Make an Official Company
– Brainstorm Book Ideas
– Watch the Oscars
– Finish Writing May Goals

So that’s a snippet of what my month will look like! I actually have two friends that have already volunteered to help me with my project, which is awesome. People are interested in what I’m doing. Which is even more awesome… Yeah.

1. What am I excited for today?
I am excited to work on my weekly goal. It’s pretty fantastic. Tomorrow I get to have a new one chosen. I’m also excited to work on my brand marketing. I love to brainstorm, it’s super fun. I mean, there’s even a brainstorming game I play called “infunitum.”

2. What am I grateful for today?
I am grateful for my new cord for my iPad mini. Without it, I’d be trying to do this on my iPod. Which would then crash because it doesn’t like to do things like this. I knew it was a good idea when I bought this mini so I’m also grateful to my past self for making that choice.

3. What am I absolutely going to do today?
Well, I’m going to work on three of my weekly goal scripts, I’m going to do some book brainstorming, some marketing brainstorming, and I’m going to work on those product outlines! Great stuff today, I’m super excited!

Alrighty, on that note, here’s my list thing:
1. Writing Prompt
2. Organization
3. Backlog
4. Product Outlines
5. Weekly Goal Work

I hope you all have a great day!
