Not sure what is going on with my sleep habits, but I have not made much progress at all on building product for OWC – I am upset. I am getting almost angry with myself, as time slips by and excuses mount.
In the end, what matters is what was accomplished, what was overcome. The excuses only fade away, leaving what-if’s, could’ve’s, and thoughts how issues could have been mitigated.
Trying to stay cool…
Dear whomever reads this, including future me –
I had planned various work the past week and failed miserably to keep up with good sleep habits let alone do the work planned. I do not have any external deadlines and I have not taken any payments in advance so at least I am only disappointing myself, but it is still disappointing to be in this position.
I know I should be kind to myself, but I also need to remain firm, stick to the work and just make it happen. Its only been a week into this new year, I only started building instruments six months ago, only decided I’d do it as a business about 4 months ago now.
But I have wanted financial independence and personal success for a long time. I came up with the name OneWithCoolness and the original logo back in 7th grade, and despite never making any sales under this banner, I have always felt it was the way… Even when I forgot it, pushed it to the back of my mind and just worked whatever jobs and lived life.
But now is the time, I think. It is about time, and so I end this confession with resolve – I will get things done, I may even get some sold this month. I will put forth the effort and I will reap accordingly.
And I will look back at this slow start and only see a few bumbling steps on the much longer path.
I am way excited for this New Year. It is time to clear out cobwebs and bust hump and shine!
I built about a dozen various instruments as gifts for Christmas, and everyone was delighted to get them. I am getting pretty good at making these things, and now its just a matter of going into ‘production mode’.
