It’s hard to believe that it’s been a week already. When I originally set forth this challenge to myself, I had actually believed that I would meet it fairly easily. Unfortunately, seven days later here are the results:
March 29th: 3
March 30th: 4
March 31st: 4
April 1st: 4
April 2nd: 0
April 3rd: 4
April 4th: 2
So I barely made it halfway through my goal of 40 hours, averaging a bit less than 3 hours per day. Heh, I told you I only worked 2-3 hours per day! I guess it’s hard to break a habit.
I will make a few excuses though. There were some unexpected events that occured during the week which threw a curveball to the plans. My grandma had died and I had to attend her funeral which took the majority of a day, and also took some hours out of the previous days such as having to shop for a suit. Then, I started having a pain in my back molar which wasn’t fun either. I have an appointment with the dentist early tomorrow morning for that.
But even with those unexpected speedbumps I should have still been able to meet my goal easily. Part of the problem is lack of incentive. Now, I’m sure many people will think “Incentive?! You want incentive?! I’ll show you incentive! How about working hard on your sites so you can make a ton more cash??” and while that does give me some incentive, it is still hard to combat that against the fact that I can just sit back and relax and still make a living. I guess my poor logic there is responding with “Why work hard when I can work easy and be very comfortable?”.
But I still agree I should put more hours in, which is why I gave myself the challenge in the first place. I will try to retackle this challenge again soon and hopefully fare better than just 2.85 hours a day.
Wish my luck on my trip to the dentist tomorrow, I’m thinking I’ll need a root canal or possibly a cavity. Any idea how much root canals cost? (I don’t have dental insurance yet).
