Creating Daily Habits: Entrepreneurs Daily Grind

You better be passionate about what you do, because if you’re not, it will fuck with your head. It is probably the only possible addiction that you can get away with because it is apparently politically correct. (what?)

Planning and Goal Setting Come From the Execution of Daily Habits

To stop yourself from burning out and fucking yourself over, you need to execute a general daily plan and set of guidelines.

Try your best to make it simple, painless, effortless and the easiest way to get everything done. You have to just simply keep on working on it.

I did this little meme up for you as a reminder of what to put into every single day.

Remember, work … work … and that rest! is so important.

Getting More Work – Freelance Work Challenges

So, I signed up for Dr Joe Vitale’s Remembering Process course. In it he talks about journalling what you remember being in your future. You have to do the course if you want to keep on progressing towards what can be.

It is indeed a process, and since reading the book, The One Thing, I have settled in my mind that what is theĀ one thing I can do this day in order to progress my life. There are a few things I attend to daily, and it has removed some of the process of procrastination.

There is the principle of do it now, and also when a certain group of clients have work finish off, and projects get completed, it is important to start sourcing other work. Today that is what I have been doing, making applications for work in freelance in a variety of different areas.

I have picked up some freelance writing jobs for copywriting, for feature article writing, and blog marketing. I do a bit of social media promotion, ad marketing and creating digital videos.

I am learning the subtle art of budgeting too!

I worked out what my expenses were, and I think that I have to hit some income targets every week, due to being on the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme, I can earn a certain amount of money and it is there to assist my business become viable. I am working towards those income targets, and that is where fishing for clients becomes really essential.

Being an entrepreneur is indeed always a challenge, and there are so many courses going on how to make money. I do sign up and pay for courses from people like Dr Joe Vitale, because his story resonates and is real. He makes a lot of sense, and how he does things is unconventional but it seems to work.

Earning money is really about setting yourself free from your own limitations and understanding your own self-worth. I did some free work for a client today, and she and I have the understanding that we take care of one another when we can.

I also am working now at a second job, doing telephone counselling, and it is actually pretty awesome. Something I really enjoy. The money from the second job goes into savings. So, I fished around for a bunch of clients today, and followed up on some old leads. There will be some work there for it next week, and the budget as it came in, it got allocated for savings, bills and other things like necessities.

I have three children, so I have to budget for their provision as well. This weekend we are celebrating Halloween, and the party budget has been allocated. I have started developing the habit of putting money into various places where it is needed, and I think that it is coming together a lot better. I am sure it will all work out and I am grateful. Grateful for my clients, grateful for working from home, and grateful for having a second source of income in order to build savings, and grateful for things like the remembering course.
