I’ve really been slacking with work the past few weeks, and whenever I find myself working only 5-6 hours a week I know it’s time to slap myself with another "Work Week Challenge".
My last challenge was held back in mid-September, whereby I challenged myself to a 46-Hour Work Week Challenge and put up $125 if I didn’t make it.
It was very difficult, and also very close, but I managed to complete the 46 hours just in time.
To most readers out there it may seem silly (as it probably is) to have to force myself to work, but the fact is that when I do these challenges I get so much more work done than I usually do that it isn’t even funny. I typically do more work in one of these "work weeks" than I do in an entire month. The compactedness (if you will) of the conditions also means that I’m forced to work longer stretches of hours which in turn means that I tend to get work done that requires those long hours… work that I usually put off or procrastinate on.
My new challenge, then, is to work 46-hours within 7 days. These are the same conditions as last time. However, this time I’m going to increase the prize money as well: The first 6 people who comment on this post will receive $25 each if I do not make the 46-hours by December 2nd at 11:00 am.
Please leave your PayPal address or if you don’t want to disclose that publicly you can e-mail it to me from the same e-mail that you have attached to your account here.
Part of why I didn’t get much done over the past couple weeks is that I was quite sick was a nasty throat infection. I’m on the road to recovery now though and hope to be back to normal within a few days.
One of the things I hope to get accomplished during this challenge is to physically visit NeverBlueAds‘s company headquarters as part of the review process for my review of them on PublisherSpot. I’ll definitely be taking photos "behind-the-scenes" and be making a blog post about it. I want to go there before it snows here though, which will be any day now…
In addition, one of the perks to this challenge is that I’ll be able to make daily blog posts again, if not more. I’ll have many posts backlogged for my blog and will hopefully drive my RSS readership up again.
Wish me luck!
