My ABCD Theory
I have been a procrastinator all my life, I may even have a condition that I suffer from for all I know? But, I am not one for going to a medical expert or a shrink for that matter because I feel it would be wasting their time and mine as well as the cost 😉
My Mother had mental issues all her life and sometimes I think some of that has rubbed off on me? I bloody hope not though!
Anyway, one of my issues is sticking to the one thing and seeing it through to the end, and when I say stick to the one thing it usually is related to courses or reading a book or following a method for more than a day or two. However, I have devised a little plan for me to hopefully get some kind of rhythm and continuity going when it comes to completing stuff like this (writing a blog post)etc
A simple method using the first four letters of the alphabet to help me complete the tasks that I am currently trying to work on. What these letters relate to are what I want to achieve on a daily basis for at least 5 working days of the week. The letters stand for;
- A = Amazon
- B = Blog
- C = Course Creation
- D = Domains Daily
Action to be taken
Each of the subjects actually has different actions to be carried out, the reason for this is because they are all different ways of earning money from online marketing.
I will explain.
Amazon = At the start of this month I signed up to a course that teaches how to make Niche sites that can generate monthly income from a few hundred dollars to thousands a month in commissions from Amazon niche websites. I have invested heavily in this method before, but I just couldn’t get myself to follow through with the training. I don’t know if it was down to the trainers of the course or how it was put together? Most likely though it would have something to do with my habit of not seeing things through.
Blog = This is exactly what I am doing now, adding a post to my blog. The idea or should I say, the mission is to spend at least an hour a day on my blog, whether that is posting or creating a featured image or even getting traffic to it.
Course Creation = This one is a biggy for me because it is my goal to be Unstuck as much as possible and become a product creator in my own right. I’ve always got something in my head that I know I should just get out there in the form of a course that I could help others as well as myself too. By spending an hour a day just dedicated to creating a product or course surely is not too much to ask?
Daily Domains = In the last personal blog that I removed from the net, I challenged myself to get a Domain A Day up for sale from my ever growing domain portfolio over at IMDomainer.com. It admittedly got quite stressful because I was not organized and I didn’t set aside the time to complete it in time. Well, it’s coming back and I think that those of you who are domainers are going to like it 😉
My new ABCD method should overcome any such failure by completing at least 1 hour a day on each project, what do you think?
I guess the question should be, what are the outcome results that I am trying to achieve with each project?
Results I am aiming to achieve from each project
- A = To at least make money within the 180 Day probationary period that Amazon.com give you access as an affiliate
- B = To build out my blog and build a list of like-minded people who look forward to my post and products
- C = To create at least one course a month that is actually out there on the net with a buy button on it!
- D = Continue to develop my domains and sell them either with a website or just as a domain, again I would be aiming at selling at least one a month.
I would love to do more offline too but I do have a day job and I feel that the only way I could spend more time on being an offline marketing consultant, would to actually become one….who knows, that day could become a reality sooner than I think!
