May 2016 Goals

My goals for May 2016:

may 2016 Goals

1.) Going through this month and making sure I have created the best damn copywriting training in the world.  It’s not 100% there yet, but will be very soon.

2.) I’m starting a coding class with AustinCodingAcademy.  This is like a knowledge refresh for my coding skillset.  I prefer outsourcing coding to other who are far better at it, but knowing the basics and having a good understanding of coding repositories and platforms is always good.

It’ll be 3+ hours every Monday and Wednesday in addition to my normal workload, so that should be interesting.  Yikes :-|

Also this month I’ll be in San Francisco for HustleCon.  I’ll be in town from May 12th – 16th. I actually wanted to stay in SF for the entire month of May, but had to cancel that due to the coding class.

I will also try to continuously update my calorie intake on this public doc:

public-food-journal

Public Food Journal

Hmmmm….let’s see if this works:

Over the years I’ve tried all sorts of ways to eat healthier.  What I’ve found personally works for me is tracking the amount of calories and grams of protein I eat per day.

This is actually far easier than it seems.  I generally just jot down whatever I eat on my daily to-do list then tabulate as I go.

I’ve tried several phone apps that do this…..but for some reason those haven’t yet kept me in the habit.

I’m giving this basic Google Spreadsheet a try for now :-)

Saw Madeline Albright speak

My current interest in politics: 0.0000001%

I’m sure that will change throughout life, but currently it’s super low.

HOWEVER…..I do find the process of running a campaign fascinating.  It involves:

  • Fundraising hundreds of millions of dollars.
  • Forming alliances.
  • Playing strategies.
  • A bunch of shady “scratch-my-back-and-I’ll-scratch-your-back” deals happen.

Plus I think this is what super rich people do.

It seems when each economic class moves upwards, they discover something:

Poor: “Oh wow! I can learn valuable skills that will make me more money.”

Middle Class: “Oh wow! I can create my own income and don’t have to work for somebody else.”

Rich: “Oh wow! I can actually switch out the people who make the rules.”

For this reason I went to go see Madeline Albright (former secretary of state) speak at a private house.  I had to pay money to attend:

February 2016 Goals

Here are the February 2016 Goals:

february 2016 goals

For the last part of 2015 and much of January I was in New Zealand and Australia, so it’s awesome to be back in Austin getting work done again.

Thanks to the power of autoresponders (and my business manager forcing me to do pre-work all of December) I didn’t have to do any work on kopywritingkourse for 29 days straight and it still grew!

My work output during travel time is highly inconsistent, so it was a nice feeling to NOT have to do anything for a long time (though I still wrote a great deal on the looonngg plane rides).

Originally almost all of my Sydney trip was rained out (random 4 straight days of rain), so I extended it by a bit, got to meet up with a bunch of people I didn’t realize were in Australia, and got to surf in Australia on Bondi beach which was fun!

All my 2015 yearly goals were hit TWO DAY’S BEFORE NEW YEAR’S when I was in Auckland.  ’twas a close one!

December 2015 Goals

Goals for the December 2015 are:

december-2015-goals

1.) Need to hit my final number for KopywritingKourse.com growth by 11:59pm December 31st, 2015

2.) MBT = MyBodyTutor.  Have been staying consistent with health.

3.) Taking off for a trip.  I’m trying to plan it so my transit times are very productive.

October updates

Workout:
A few months ago I started working out occasionally with my friend Billy.  What’s interesting is last year he randomly entered a body building competition and won.

His secret?

Eat well + workout + do that everyday for a year.

He got down to 3.5% body fat (which is INSANE) by just following that routine……but also closely tracking it.

I’m not aiming for his results or closely tracking every workout yet, but I’ve started jotting down a few things to keep me accountable on this spreadsheet:

I’m also following Billy’s 5-day workout regimen:

What’s helped a lot is joining a gym outside of my apartment gym.

My apartment gym is nice and all, but doesn’t have the same energy, vibe, or equipment as a real gym.

 

Car:
Years and years and years ago I bought a Lexus GS300.  The car has been a beast over the years.  In terms of cars and price it was an unbelievable purchase.

I drive very little here in Austin so I’ve never been in a big hurry to get a new car, but I recently picked this baby up:

It’s the exact same car, just a newer GS 350:

gs350-2

The old GS300 in the back, new GS350 in the front:
gs350-1

Interesting note: Since the day I got it, I’ve never put a front license plate on my original GS300.  With this new car I’m finally road legal!

Look at dat ass:
gs350-3

The main thing I’ve noticed between the two cars is the level of technology.  From the starter, the door opening, any functionality, the integration with my phone……it’s all electronic.

It’s amazing to see the level of technology going into these cars.

Hope it lasts the same way the older one did!
