The thing that really interests me is
setting and achieving goals and working to your 100%.
Here is a bit of background information
My whole life I found it easy to make
myself do physical things like go to the gym, start running, etc.
But, when it comes to sitting down and doing school or a web business
I really struggle and always try to put in the minimum amount of work
to get the job done. So, I built myself a system to deal with my
laziness, at the age of 25, by coming home and working hard for only
an hour each day. Using this method I have been able to:
1. Build a political website that got
featured on local TV news, radio, and a few websites, but that
eventually didn't go anywhere. I did this with a partner. I was the
only software developer.
2. Build an e-commerce store
that started to get orders, but I had to close it down because the
other partners were not trusting each other. I did this with three
partners. I was the only software developer.
3. Get my GED
4. Enter College and complete 29
credits. (i'm currently in college now and working full-time as a software developer)
I think it's a big improvement for a
high school drop out. But, I know that I can achieve so much more if
I could do more than one hour a night, but I find I get burnt out
very easily. I left things late in life and I really want to start
pushing hard to improve and not leave things to the last minute.
I don't know if anything of this is
helpful, but your advice on goals would be really appreciated.
BTW: You don't have to sugar coat
anything. I appreciate your time :)
