Hi Nellie, I always love a “surviving” tip kind of post… :) I like the simple, yet profound list of ways to survive switching from working a job to being an at home Online Entrepreneur. I love the first one. When I first started at home learning to say no was a challenge for me. This spans the social area as well because family and friends used to think I just played around on the computer when I felt like it. They had no concept of the appointments and schedule I kept so had to educate them. Perfectionistic tendencies were bringing me down for the longest time, and still plague me somewhat but getting great content out there is of paramount importance, and I learned I can always tweak as I go. Thanks for your thought-provoking article! - Carol Amato"
Hi Lyceum, "Rather than thinking in terms of what I can accomplish in a year, I’m now revamping my thought process to redefine my year into a 12 week-long period of time. Think about it this way – in a 12 week time period, you won’t have that long year ahead to become lackadaisical about your progress. If you have an entire year, you may become lazy and think, “Oh well…I have all year to do this.” It helps with our procrastination triggers." And... "The need to intensify your progress becomes more urgent, and you’ll find that you get more done in a shorter amount of time – because you don’t have all year." It's amazing how this results in high level productivity and achievement of goals. Highly recommended. I have the Kindle Version, but may be getting the hardback as well. :) Hope to help. - Carol Amato"
