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:

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.

August 2015 Goals

My goals for August 2015:

August 2015 Goals

1.) I’m still in list building mode.
That’s primary focus.

2.) I want to learn to type faster. 
I’m in a computer for most of the day, do a LOT of writing, and a LOT of email.  The fact I can only type 60 or 70 words per minute is pretty lame considering typing is what I do alllll day long.

A 10% – 30% increase in my typing speed can have huge impacts on my productivity.  So this seems like an important thing to learn.

The problem is I “Chicken Peck” with my index fingers:

Chicken Pecking Typing

That’s right.  EVERY SINGLE LETTER I TYPE IS WITH MY TWO INDEX FINGERS.

I can type reasonably fast, and without looking at the keyboard, but I’ve got my two index fingers running around the keyboard all day whilst my other fingers just chill.

That’s a waste.

This month I’m taking about 10 minutes per day to train myself to type with all my fingers.

 

July 2015 Goals

Here’s my goals for July 2015:

july-2015-goals

It’s damn-near identical to my June 2015 goals because that combo of activities worked well.

But June is done now, so it’s time for July:

The only addition is I started tracking my daily calorie intake (a tactic I did in a six pack experiment years ago I learned from Adam at MBT).

Sometime in June I started tracking my caloric intake and workout status on mirror in my living room.  There’s something stupidly EASY AND HELPFUL about just writing down a health summary of my day.

Quite useful:

Anywho, time to start chipping away at July!
