Okay, so it's not Monday, but I'm going to do my Monday Rundown post anyhow. After not accomplishing anything last week due to being sick, I've been feeling pretty low. I really had big dreams for the things I wanted to finish up and release out into the world and not accomplishing those things has been a big downer. I've been trying to turn my online projects into money makers, but not having the time to create or to promote has really put a damper on this and I'm starting to feel discouraged.
It's also not helping that Will and I are missing Jacob terribly. We were hoping he might be able to find a drilling job so that he could come home from time to time. Unfortunately, his company is working 7 days a week for 10 -12 hours a day which leaves no time for job hunting. Of course the flip side of this is that if he continues to work for the company he is with he will always have a job. The company he works for right now is a maintenance company and while there may not always be drilling, there will always be maintenance. What it amounts to is that there are a lot of tough decisions not too far down the pike for our family.
In response to all this I've been trying to lighten my load as much as possible. Anything not necessary to our existence is slowly being weeded out. I've also been implementing a much more rigid structure to our days. As I've talked about before, we always do better when we have rhythm and structure.
Which brings me to my next topic, what's on the agenda for my online projects. I've been working so hard and not accomplishing much that I'm going to be taking a step back this month and focus on writing articles and creating content for my sites (including finishing the family rhythm articles), instead of working on the bigger "money making" projects. I will not look at the numbers this month, instead I'm going to be working on adding value to my sites. It makes me a bit nervous to not pay attention to the numbers, but I think it's time for a reset in mindset.
So, that's it. That's all I've got. Have a great week.
