Many times I thought I knew or I thought I was right. I was pretty sure I was right. But it turned out I wasn’t. Ask, inquire, act and find out if your judgements and assumptions are indeed true. Test them.
“The real growth comes with products that annoy, offend, don’t appeal, are too expensive, too cheap, too heavy, too complicated, too simple – too anything.” – Seth Godin, Purple Cow
Tomorrow I depart for San Francisco. I am moving there. I will find a job and a home.
A few months ago my thirty day challenge was to do a blog post every day for a month on my other blog. A month or so ago I did a drawing a day for thirty days. I accomplished those things. There was a few days when I didn’t feel like it, but I did and succeeded in reaching my goal. For the next month my challenge is going to be that I am not going to look at the statistical data for Google Analytics, Webmaster Tools and Adsense.
I think it’s kinda of a waste to keep checking on these things. I think time could be better spent doing other things. So on March 5th I’ll check the data on those sites, but I shouldn’t expect much to have changed. And if it did, great, but if it didn’t then I shouldn’t be surprised. I figure my main purpose for doing web stuff shouldn’t be to see how much traffic is going up or how much money I am making from Ads.
For you, your 30 day challenge could be anything like: learn 5 Chinese words a day, ride a bike to work everyday, eat vegan, etc.
Be independent of the good opinion of other people. They don’t care as you much as you do about it anyways.
