It’s funny: I finally find enough success as an entrepreneur to live off my profits and I get depressed. I lost my purpose. It’s like the opposite of what I felt would happen.
I let myself get seduced by the comfort of having passive income. I indulged in lots of shit that derailed my productivity. I thought it was okay if I limited the behavior, but that never worked in practice.
SO I’ve banned a lot of shit cold turkey out of my life. Watching sports, Esports, reddit — really anything that can serve as a major distraction to my mission (I have THREE website blockers that I have to disable to get to any sites I’d indulge in, not worth it). I’m waking up at 5am again. And hey IM BLOGGING AGAIN. I also help out other entrepreneurs daily on The Fastlane Forum.
Being uncomfortable is great! It helps when things get rough (like resetting my sleep to 5am) that I tell myself this discomfort is way more fun than giving into comfort and being sad about it. This seems weird to write because this wasn’t a problem for me until I had success but whatev.
I haven’t been valuing my time and in return my time has not been valuing me (hrrrrrr I’m so clever). But ya I’ve also put my yearly goals in a picture frame above my computer, and I write down Deadlines for ANYTHING I work on. I make life like a game and it become more fun to do the right things.
Hey but I’m also not taking life so seriously. Like I’m not even gonna edit this post more than one time over! This guy!
K see you next time peace
