a new lifestyle – snooze & lose


I think I’ve always had a problem when it comes to staying on schedules I set up for myself. Everything is fine when I’m working for/with others and there is a deadline set, I can meet it or accomplish early. I haven’t quite figured out how to establish that kind of commitment when it comes to my own personal projects. What’s bizarre is that these are projects I want to do.

Blogging, for example, I need to force myself to sit down and write. Sometimes, yes, I am too busy actually doing something else when I have the urge to write. But there are other days that I’m literally staring at the wall, or in other words I could be a lot more productive and make better use of my day.

“But that happens to the best of us from time to time,” I hear you saying. And “you” is actually myself trying to justify my laziness. And frankly, that’s what it is. Lately, it hasn’t been “from time to time” and it’s more like every morning. I have dreams and aspirations but they can’t be made into reality if I’m still lying where those dreams may have initially formed. I don’t care to count the cumulative hours I’ve wasted lounging around this past month. Forget “Rise & Grind,” it’s “Snooze & Lose” in this world. I also need to ignore holidays as an excuse to take it easy. Time management will be the skill I improve this month.

I technically have two to-do list apps on my phone. One of which I only used twice so far. (Don’t worry Wunderlist, I’ll be back sooner or later.) The other is my Google calendar that I exclusively use on my phone to remember certain dates or places I need to be so I don’t just blindly agree to being somewhere when I’ve already promised nine other people I’ll be in 16 other separate locations.

I’m saying all of this because there are a lot of things I want to do and need to do with 3s:FX and it’s all on me to get them done. I’m grateful and thankful for my father who constantly pushes me, nags me, and even helps get me clients. As annoying as he can get, it’s needed. But I need to learn to be a better self-motivator and stick to the plan… after writing it out of course. Every day that I let go by that I haven’t completed something or networked with someone, is another day I missed out on feeling accomplished and/or getting paid. Time really is valuable, money or otherwise.

Here’s to waking up the first time my alarm goes off in the morning.
