Wow isn’t that a marketing term? Besides also being a restaurant with the same name.
It’s kinda appropriate because majority of the workforce in the US look forward to the weekend. Thanks God it’s Friday! To mark the beginning of the weekend. After 40-60 hours of work folks can relax and spend two days doing nothing or having fun with the families. Unfortunately we only get 52 weekends.
Which means we’re limited to about 104 days where we can plan out what we want to do. And guess what some weekends the weather isn’t right to go out and play with the kids. Other weekends we gotta go visit families and events. So now those 104 days get reduces down to an even smaller number.
Life is what we make it!
So what’s your plan for the weekend?
It’s been overt 10 days since the last blogpost and that goes to show that if you’re not thinking about something constantly it’s not going to become a habit overnight.
First of all it is not healthy to be thinking about the same thing over and over that’s why we have reminders and habits.
Secondly, habits form after you consistently do something for 60+ days and adding too many things at once to that habit will also deter you from forming that habit.
A study revealed why most people are not able to keep their New Years resolutions and that is because we add too many thing too many resolutions on ourselves to accomplish.
Take exercising for example, let’s say you work out twice a month and you resolve to do it twice a week, that resolution is already flawed from the get go, because you might be able to stick with it for say 1-2 months, but it’s going to be super hard. Because you’ve added 600% more exercises to your month than you initially managed.
The ideal way to get to 2/week exercise would be to start with 1/week and continue that for 3 months, then introduce 2/week and keep that up for 3 months and gradually get good at keeping up.
So yes reminders are necessary, it can be a person reminding you to do your thing or an app. I remembered that I hadn’t written in 10 days so I thought to myself that I can simply set a reminder on my phone which is with me all waking hours of the day.
So now the reminders app will remind me everyday in the morning to write a blogpost. Hopefully this can help me form this essential habit.
When I restarted blogging I simply depending on my brain to remind me and we can’t do that all the time.
Off loading a simple task such as reminders to an app keeps your mind clear and focus on working more efficiently.
Yea it’s not a massive revelation but it’s good to come to some conclusions without jumping on a mat.
It’s so hard to be consistent, but I’m getting a hang of it, atleast I like to think so.
I think the idea is to take the time away from your day and decide to be consistent in doing the one thing that is boring and relentlessly write and get the word down on the paper.
The difference between 200 crappy words than 500 -3000 golden words is that it is super hard to do consistently.
The idea behind bringing consistent content every day is to make sure that you keep doing this and writing daily.
Thank you for your time.
This inspiration comes from Seth Godin, as he’s been writing blogs since 2002 writing at least 1 blog a day. He’s calculated over 7000+ posts!
Not to discount the 18 books he’s written.

Everyone needs a plan, either this plan is hashed out on the way to the result or you need to sit down and think through the plans you have in mind.
I’ve had the honor to connect with hundreds of professionals in the last year, I’ve learned a lot from their stories and success as well as their failures.
Constantly improving my flow as well as the automation to ease up the things that require repetitive tasks.
So my plan is simple. Get it done, market and show value through marketing and sharing stories of what I gained from the experience.
Thanks for stopping by!

Are you connecting with new people every day? Connecting with people on a daily basis, learning their story, learning their journey, it’s all part of being human beings.
The power of connection exponentially increases as you connect with more people daily.
Today I had the pleasure to speak with my team mate from Team Velocipede, Saad Reza and we talked about cycling, health, and keto as well as podcasting.
I also had the opportunity to meet up with my good friend and podcaster Erol Ertumen and host of LinkedIn MasterEEE group on Facebook.
As well as an upcoming podcaster and photographer Vadym Guliuk.
We got to talk about podcasting, marketing and understanding what our audience needs.
I also got to chat with Rod Ferrier and we talked about some really cool things that we can do to help others with education around video production.
So go out there and connect with people sharing your ideas and your goals and you never know who will be available to send you in the path to achieve your goals what do you think leave a comment below.
The one thing we gotta remember is that the more you do the same thing, the better you’ll get at it. And the more you have consistency behind it you’ll certainly build that as a habit.
Key is to do the new habit that you’re trying to build accompanied with something that you already do, makes it easier to associate and build up that new hobby.
So I’m still struggling, but I’ve got to keep on trucking and build that this new habit and muscle out.
