What app do I use to stay organised and why?

Hi guys,

As I promised in my last post, today I will introduce you to an app I am using to plan and organise my tasks. But before I’ll move to the right topic, I will explain you what I have been using before and why I had to look for some online tool to handle all my projects.

As you might have noticed, I mentioned not too long ago that I am carrying on my planning in bullet journal. So far it was the most suitable system for me, as I could include in my each month set up as much or as less as I wanted. Moreover, it helped my creativity, as I used to make sure that my layouts are not only very useful, but they look pretty too. However, I found just one problem with bullet journal, which is I couldn’t use it anywhere I wanted. As I am commuting a lot, I needed something to allow me to add, check and edit my tasks for example in train, what happened to be impossible with my bullet journal. There where also some smaller issues, like I went for a meeting with my friends, but traffic jam made them late. As I haven’t planned to do any work, I haven’t taken my bullet journal with me, so usually I have wasted this time of waiting. Sometimes I had a new thing to do popping up into my head, but my notebook have been left in the classroom (for example when I was in uni), so I had to note it in my phone and transfer to my bullet journal later. But what made me sure that I have to look for some other way, was the fact that my schedule became very unpredictable. As I am finding out about my shift at the same day when I have to go to work, I can’t really treat my plan as something impossible to change. I needed something what will allow me to reschedule my tasks as many times as I want, without making my plan hard to read and understand.

All this made me look for a tool available on my devices like phone and computer. While searching for my perfect solution, I came across a lot of various planning apps. Some of them were free, some paid, there were a lot of good ones, but any of them seemed perfect for me. Always something was missing. I’ve tried few simple ones, which were just simple to-do list, where you add tasks and tick them as they are done. However, I couldn’t divide my tasks into categories; other apps offered this, but there was limited amount of projects I can add or limited amount of task I can have in one project.

I don’t remember any app which would allow me to assign tasks to different categories. This turned out very helpful for me, when I discovered Nozbe (although, it took me two weeks to figure out how they are going to work best for me). I am simply using them to mark places and tools I need to finish each task. Some of my categories are Home, Uni, Pen&Paper, Computer, etc. As I can assign multiple categories to one task, whenever I am waiting for someone or something unexpectedly, I am able to ask Nozbe to show me these tasks, which I can complete (or at least work on) at the moment.

The other good thing about Nozbe, is that it is very easy to change deadline for your task, or even remove it completely. There is also option to send a task to a special email created for you and from any device connected to the internet, you can add tasks to your app (I haven’t tried this option yet, but I’ve seen peoples opinions, that it is extremely useful for them).

Nozbe allows also to work in group. As more people are going to use it, as more expensive is subscription (free subscription allows you to have just five projects for one person). It has also a very fair price. After using it for a month (exactly 30 days of free trial), I had no doubts that this is what I need.

If you want to try Nozbe for free for one month, you can register here. Please, keep in your mind that, if you decide to purchase it after one month, I will get some commission out of your purchase, but it will not affect your price. So I would be very grateful, if you would like to support me this way. What I forgot to tell you, each user becomes Nozbe affiliate automatically, as application produces a link for you to share it as I just did. I found this option as I was going through Nozbe menu to describe it for you as well, as I can.

After a month, I will review this app one more time, after testing all options Nozbe has to offer (maybe except group work, as all my tasks are being performed just by me at the moment) and I’ll let you know whether I changed my mind.

But for now I wish you a very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

Work with what you have and look for opportunities

Hi guys,

Today is a very exciting day for me, as my first video has been scheduled! It is not perfect (especially that I can’t speak English properly while I am stressed; and quality of montage… well) and I have been thinking for a long time to reschedule it for the next Sunday, just to make it better. And I almost did it, but as I was about to go for it, when I have got notified about this post. I commented on it and as I posted my opinion, I have realised, that “girl, something goes wrong!”

Basically that post is about ideas and taking actions for them; and costs connected to both of this things. And I understood, that I am waiting with my upload for a better time, till video will be perfect. But I forgot, that perfection will come with the experience. And how am I going to get experience, if I am not going to start?

So yesterday, for the last time I have rescheduled my video and this time I have actually uploaded it. And this is how the idea for this post has been born.

Having an idea and taking action towards it, are two things needed at the same time. You can have an idea and keep waiting till something happen, till time will be better and finally till you will become perfect. But reality is harsh. This perfect moment might never come. You want to invest first to increase quality of your product, but you have to save some funds for it, but are you sure, you’ll be able to do this?

I have decided, that it might not happen in my case. There is always a lot of things to do, a lot of spending and finally not enough time in one day, so now I know, that good time will never come. So I just started with what I have. Quality of my videos? I can always correct it after, when I will be able to afford for microphone I want or for better software to record my video. Now I have what I have and I am going to make a good use of it.

And this is my advice for you. If you have an idea, Just try to start. Maybe it will not be perfect at first, but go for it. If you will keep pushing it away, this great idea might never be seen by the world. Do you want to take this risk?

And today’s post is very short, I know. But for now I wish you a very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

Why all this productivity things, self-development and ideas are so important for me?

Hi guys,

Today’s post is a continuation of my previous post (here is the link, if you are interested), where I introduced you to the way, how I am dealing with my ideas. As my dream is to be able to earn my living by working from home. Moreover I want to build sources of passive income online, so most of my ideas are connected with that.

However, building passive income online is quite a big struggle. There are not too many stories, where you are becoming rich overnight and instead, there is a lot of work going on at the beginning, without any income at all. And, as a passive income seems to be a very convenient option, there are a lot of people who got discouraged and simply gave up before seeing any results at all. This was the reason, why I have started this blog. Just to keep me moving. To have some space, where I can track progress on my goals. But as time passed, I have realised that this is not the way to follow. And I decided to share my thoughts and opinions about things I am reading or just things I knew since very long time, but never had an occasion to think them through.

Switching the way with my blogging, made me realise that building a passive income requires a lot of changes. You need to develop patience and you have to learn how to enjoy the process. After all, you will never know, if this project you are working on at the moment, will ever be successful. But the fact of building passive income itself make you more productive. Just because you can’t just leave your job right away (especially if you don’t have enough savings to survive for some time) and you have to work on it in your free time, when people around are just relaxing.

To be honest, people around can be discouraging as well. You will probably hear a lot of opinions that you are just wasting your time. That nothing is going to work. You have made so much effort already, so where are your results? You might even believe them at some point. But the way, how I am writing my posts at the moment, requires from me a lot of analysing. Wondering about the world, about myself… But it also requires a lot of learning. I just watch some videos and I am getting inspired, so I am trying to go deeper into the topic and learn more.

What is impressive, I had to learn to look around me. Before I was known as a person walking with my head in the clouds. I could pass by the people I know very well and just not even notice them (even if they said “Hi!” to me). At the moment I am watching the world around me. I can see people’s struggles, sadness, happiness and all set of different emotions. I can see their behaviours and learn. Learn about people and the whole society I am living in. I feel that this makes me a better person.

However, I have slipped out of passive income topic. Building it online makes you work a lot from home. You hardly meet any people, you don’t deal with them a lot (I mean, there are some people who you are talking online). You will need to care for your social life yourself. You have to make sure, you are meeting your friends spending quality time with your family, just to simply socialise with the people.

So coming up to the conclusion building the passive income requires a lot of work, which doesn’t show any results on the beginning. You might want to carry on with different sources of your passive income, however I have decided to focus on one at the time and carry on to the next one as soon, as the previous one doesn’t require a lot of work from me any more (or I will just become familiar with it and it will not keep taking a lot of time for me). You might need to invest some money as well (but it depends on the things you are doing). But what is the most important (at least in my opinion), you have to keep learning constantly. Learn about things you are doing (just to become better in them); learn about yourself, to find how to overcome moments of resignations and learn how to stay productive, while everyone around is just relaxing. The other thing I haven’t mentioned yet, your products (whether it is a website, YouTube channel, book, podcast, etc.) should bring some kind of value for people, who are going to use them, either it will be something entertaining, educational or any other.

But what I think is the most important, they have to be unique. And you can ask: How can I make an unique product, if there are already millions of them out there? Everything has been told! And you would be right. However, the important thing is how are you going to deliver your value. And there is a wide field here to experiment, to include your unique personality here and there and just make it stand out of the crowd.

Now you might ask, if it is worth so much effort. Sacrificing evenings out and working a lot of extra hours every day instead (I have even heard that this is a slavery job; I am working like dumb just for free)? Well, for me it does. First of all, learning process is very exciting. Second of all, If I can work harder now and be able to rest after, not worrying about my incomes? I am in!

And what is important, I am making sure, that my projects are about something, what is very interesting for me. So even by working more, I am doing things I love to do any way. Moreover, there are still a lot of things I want to learn, just because I would like to be able to do particular things. So including them into building my passive income is very effective, actually.

And this is it for today’s post. I hope you like it and that it explained you, why I am so interested in self development and productivity topics. Why ideas are so important for me and why I want to make sure that I am not loosing any important one.

If you have any questions about passive income, you can ask them in comment section below. I will answer them either by replying to your comment or writing a next post (if your question requires more explanation). What is important, this blog is not a way to earn any money, it is some kind of journal, where I am keeping my thoughts and I hope that my point of view might help someone. If I will be able to earn some extra money, I will probably use this opportunity, but there it isn’t a source I consider as passive income.

For today, I wish you a very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

Struggling does pay of (day four)

Hi guys,

Here it is, day four. There is no fail so far. And there is no thought to do so even. So I am proud of myself.

What is good, my eyes are getting used to work as well. They aren’t as good as they were before, but yesterday I was able to work for four hours with fifteen minutes break in between only. For me it’s huge progress.

And today, I would like to talk about struggling. We all know, that there is nothing good in struggling. We are putting so much efford and instead of things going on smoother and easier, it is becoming harder and harder.

But what is important? If we are only able to stand this tough time, we are going to be so proud, like never before. Just only because we managed. No matter what. And even if we’ll fail, but get up and start all over again, we are still going to fight and we won’t give up, we will achieve any way. We will get knowledge about our limits. So we’re going to know, how much we need to do, to become better version of ourselves. Well, if we won’t get to those limits, we can only guess. Isn’t it right?

What I mean by: you won’t know, how long distance you can run, how long you can work, etc. if you will not get to the point, when you can’t.

I remember in my gymnasium (just to explain, in Poland we graduate from gymnasium at the age of 15-16) a lot of girls got pregnant. It became some kind of fashion to have a child and a lot of my school mates were dreaming to catch occasion to have one. No matter how, or who will be father of their child. Well, they wouldn’t even care, if they know who is the father.

Scaring? So try to imagine, that in my school were around two hundred girls, of wich sixty were pregnant or had their child already.

What did our head teacher do? He gave to each girl one doll. It looked like normall doll, but it was crying every 15 minutes. Parents agreed, that they are not going to help us with it and every girl had to carry this doll everywhere. It was tiring. A lot of us was crying, that we don’t want child after one night of struggling with this doll (I needed three nights). After we had some speach delivered by our school psycologist.

But what was the point. After this experience I knew, I can start work at night, as long as every three shifts I will have at least two days off. And this was what I did. Before I was worrying, whether I can manage or not (it was very important as my parents alowed me to work only if I am not going to fail even one day in school because of that. If I would, after I wouldn’t have any chance to work before I will turn 18).

To be honest, I am not sure why I was thinking all day about limits, struggling and stuff like this, but I’ve decided to share it with you, guys. I hope you like it.

Now, I am going to present my today’s summary:

Five (or four) chapters of book – checked

One HTML&CSS lesson – checked

Revision before my tomorrow’s arabic lesson – checked

Today’s post – checked

Plan for tomorrow – checked
Now I wish you good night and productive day.

Daria
PS. After around two maybe three hours self-development’s book post is going to appear, as at the moment I am in the car, coming back from my friend’s birthday party (that’s why today’s summary isn’t very impressive, as after work I was away and my HTML&CSS lesson I have done in the morning, rest had been done in a car).

I hope you’re going to enjoy it. And see you in tomorrow’s post.

Day 5th and 6th: Sometimes everything just go wrong. And does business kill art?

Hi guys,

Yesterday and today were rainy days in London. Personally, my mood and motivation depend on weather a lot. This is how I work: a little sun outside and my face is bright with huge smile, but when outside it’s gray and it’s raining, the only thing I want to do is sleeping. Of course I can’t afford to sleep whole day, so I just carried on in zombie mode (thought for today: person who invented coffee should be called a hero).

And even if today I felt a bit more motivated and work seemed easier, yesterday I’ve checked some activities on my goal’s list as well. Unfortunatelly, my router decided, that he is not going to work either. Well, sometimes happen. That’s why today’s post is a combination of two days.

Today I am not going to bore you with any thoughts or something. It could spoil your mood (which I hope is great at the moment 😉 ). But I’ve decided to add one more point to my goal list and this is what I am going to tell you about.

But first, let me start with some explanation. As you may know, I’ve started this blog to get some more motivation, some short term reward for my work (which is possibility to write about this in my post and share with you). But of course when you get same reward every day, it becomes your routine and you are not waiting for this any more (it haven’t happen to me yet, but possibly can in the future). And here comes greatness of my blog: if the other day I will decide just to let my time go by without doing anything, I won’t have anything to write about. And this will become huge punishment for me. I am going to have this feeling, that something is missing. That I haven’t done something, what is such a fun for me. And this keeps me going. Even if I’ve started less than a week ago, this blog became my weapon in hard war with procrastination.

Even yesterday, when I finished my post and I’ve failed with posting it here, I felt that something I am actually waiting for isn’t going to happen. And I’ve understood, how important this blog already is for me.

So what I intend to do is to give some love to this. Make it more valuable for you. So I decided to do more things: first of them is to keep adding one motivational quote every month (I have two already, very important to me – but those quote’s stories I’ll tell you in one of the future posts). Second thing is, that I am going to add one review of self-development connected book every two weekes (not exactly review, just main points of book. Why? I think, self-development is very personal thing and something what does work for me, might not work for others and reverse). First book-post is going to appear on my blog on Sunday 28th of May. I hope you are going to like it. I haven’t choosen any particular title yet, but I am going to have a look and pick something 😉

Ok, previous part was just edited post from yesterday. And I’ve changed my mind. I’ll share one thought with you. Something what is sitting in back of my head, deeply inside. One simple question: does business kill art and some kind of sensitivity needed to actually do something creative (whatever kind of art we are talking about)?

Let’s take writters for example. Many times I’ve read book, which blew my mind. I just couldn’t belive, how someone can write something so good, how is it possible? Author is selling huge amout of copies and you just can’t wait till next part will be finished. Every day you are thinking, when I can read it? When it’s going to be published?

And finally this day comes. Next part is avaiable in every bookshop and you are first in long long queue to get it. You can’t resist and you start reading on the way back home. First chapter, second and the other one. Wait… Something’s wrong… You read next chapter, and next. But still, something is missing. Is it the style of writting? No… Story doesn’t seem to be interesting. It looks like all misery, unexpected situations, which were happening in first part are gone now. You are able to predict what is going to happen in next scene, it’s just too simple.

How do you feel? Well… disappointed? And your thinking proccess cannot stop. What’s happened? How it’s possible, that such a good writer, wrote something like… this?

But whatever happened, is past now. You’ve even started to forget. Your brain works again, thinking about regular, everyday’s stuff. But some time after you see interview on TV or you just read it in newspaper. Your author, being interviewed. Memories come back, you want to know, what he has to say as an explanation.

Itroduction. You don’t understand too much. Some single words like: bestseller, best author of our time are coming to your mind, but it doesn’t matter to you. You are waiting for one answer, just one.

And it doesn’t come. Another disappointment. And your brain start thinking again. And finally, in the middle of the night your answer comes, simple and genius at the same time. Just one question have been asked, and indirect answer for your question, completely different. This magical question was: How long it took you to write your books? And answer: first one year, second one three months…

And now you know: next part was written too quick. Author hasn’t spent enough time, to make it perfect like first one. It was written in hurry. Simple like that.

Why? Was it contract, stating that next part should be written by this time? Or just craving for more money? Or simply, book was written to please readers or publishers and have been changed on the way?

No matter what the reason was, it wasn’t author’s book in 100%.

And here is the problem. For author, writting became way for earning money. And this is perfectly fine. The only problem is, that process of writting had been lost on the way. Writting became craft for craft. Book wasn’t written for having fun, doing something what was his passion. It was for any other reason. There is no more unique personality in there, something what is neccessary to perform any kind of craft. Business killed it.

That’s why here is my request (you don’t have to listen it, as I am not any kind of artist, but I need to share it with you): if you do any kind of art, make sure you keep it in your unique way. When someone offer you money for that, go for it. Just don’t forget, that you should do whatever you do for yourself first, after for any other reason. And that way your art will be always great. Just think about it: if someone offered you money for your passion, you must be great in it. So don’t change it.

Ok, this day had gotten so long already, so I am going to share short summary of two days only.
5th day’s summary:

Chapter of book have been red – checked 🙂

One HTML lesson – checked 🙂

Arabic lesson revision – checked 🙂

Plan for next day – checked 🙂

Post – written, but not posted 😦
6th day’s summary:

Chapter of book – checked 🙂

HTML lesson – checked 🙂

Arabic lesson – checked 🙂

Post on this blog – checked 🙂

Unfortunately, it’s been raining so I couldn’t force myself to go by bike to my work, or at least walk. So being active – failed 😦

And for now I am going to take my way in my bed’s direction. I wish you all to make what you love and always be yourself. Have a productive day and I see you in my next post tomorrow 🙂

4th day: nothing to complain about?

Hi guys,

I was working today and what I’ve realized is, that most of my posts are started with  complaints. How hard my day was, how tired I am and stuff like this. Well, today  was quite easy day. No unnecessary stress, nothing unexpected to do. Even I’ve came from work much earlier than normally, as we’ve done all work before time came.

On my way back, I’ve done some shopping. It isn’t my favourite activity, so every time when I am going on my own, I put my earphones on and I am just thinking (by the way, sometimes very interesting thoughts come to my mind 😉 ).

Today I was thinking about money. But don’t get me wrong, not how to become rich or that it would be nice. I was wondering how it’s possible, that people who don’t have enough money to spare (actually they can’t afford for anything except paying their bills and some food) can be so good buddies. You can talk to them about everything, they are just normal. But when they get better job and their situation changes, they are changing as well.

For exaple, I had one friend. We know each other since we were little children. I am not sure, but it is possible, that when we were three or four years old (any way, since I remember we were always together). Any of us had too much money, even if we haven’t pay bills (advantages of living with parents 😉 ), but we always had something to do together. It was great time.

Everything changed when three years ago, when we were twenty three. I moved to London and after two months she has started new job. What is important: well paid job. And don’t get me wrong, I am very happy about this. The only think is, that as more money she had, as less things we had to talk about. She started doing stuff, which other people do, she is eating only food what is good to eat, just to take photo for instagram. And stuff like this. And even if this is the same person, I can’t find my friend in her any more. That is making me very sad.

That’s why please, have it in your mind, that no matter how much money you have (and of course I wish you to have as much as possible 😉 ) always remember who you are. Even if you can afford for more, you make use of it and have fun, but don’t change your personality because of that. Just keep your mindset same 😉

Ok, but let’s leave my shopping thoughts alone and come back to my goals 😉

Today as I said was good day and a lot of stuff have been done.

First and the most exciting one was my first Arabic lesson which was just great 🙂 And it makes my: learn Arabic – checked 😉

I’ve red three chapters of book, what means: website content and English improvement – checked 😀

And what I am proud of the most, is the fact, that I’ve done are two HTML lessons – checked 🙂 😀

And my plan for tomorrow is done as well – checked 🙂

And whole day today I was traveling by bike, so being active deserves for huge CHECKED 😀

And now, proud of myself, not very tired but very happy instead, because of what I’ve done today, I am moving in direction of my bed. Today earlier than usually, but as everything had been done, why not? So for today I wish you all sweet dreams and very productive day tomorrow. And just to remind you: never forget, who you are, no matter how much your situation will chenge and you can be sure: your friends are going to be grateful for that.

I see you in tomorrow’s post 🙂

3rd day: or just a little part of day

Hi guys 🙂

3rd day already finish. Or better to say, part of the day. Why? As today so many unexpected things have happened. Starting from one hour overtime. I know, that everyone may feel not well in the morning and just call to inform about his or her absence in work. But five people at a time?! This was horribly hard day in work. Luckily 5:30 came, I was still alive, so what wrong could happen?

Well, after coming home I wanted to warm up my food and my microwave just wasn’t working, so I took my bike quickly and I went to buy new one, which is going to be delivered tomorrow evening (maybe it wasn’t so big disaster, but like some people says: “without phone I am like without hand” – at least in my back home we are saying like this, I am not sure if this does exist in English – my family without microvawe is like without hand).

When I returned home again, I just couldn’t resist and I took a nap. Short, but it helped me a lot. That’s the reason, why today I’ve started my personal work late and why this post showed up late as well. And this turned my whole day into just few hours.

So today I won’t be writting too long, as tomorrow we have short of stuff as well and I suppouse I am going to need some sleep 😉

So let’s go to my activities 🙂 First thing is: I was being active, as I went to work and to the shop by bike (shop is around half an hour away from my place, I hardly got there on time 😉 ) so I think I can easily mark it as checked 😀

I wrote my review as well – finally. So my website’s content – checked 😉

And I’ve done my next HTML lesson – checked 🙂

Unfortunately I haven’t read even one chapter today and I don’t think I will, but plan for tomorrow is ready, hanged on my cork board, so I can’t do anything else as mark it as checked 🙂

Ok, I think I am going to finish for today, as it has gotten late already. I hope tomorrow, there won’t be any surprises and with this hope I wish you all good night and productive day after 😉

Daria

P.S. Today I am not going to make summary, as I was trying to write everything in one place, so let’s hope you’ll like it as well. And if you have anything you do, when something unexpected happen, please let me know. I will really appreciate this 🙂

2nd day: little steps are counted, aren’t they?

Hi guys,

Another day. I can’t even believe, how helpful this blog became for me. Even if only few people visited it and very likely most of those few will never come back, still it’s so motivating. First thing I do after wake up is thinking what I am going to do.

Even today, for instance, I woke up and I was thinking: “Daria, today you just rest, don’t do anything, you are tired, aren’t you?”, but just one minute after another thought came into my mind: “Ok, but what are you going to write about in the evening? That you were laying in bed all day?”. It made me move straight away. Great feeling. I haven’t had to force myself. And it doesn’t matter, that working haven’t been as easy and quick like yesterday (when, obviously, I had much less time then today, as today was my day-off in job). It doesn’t matter, that when I’ve started, at least hundred times I considered coming back into my bed. Why? Because I managed to beat my laziness, which today was very hard enemy of mine.

I suppose my achievements won’t throw anyone to one’s knees, but I feel proud of what I’ve done, anyway 😉 No matter what people will tell, I thing that little tiny steps are better than standing in one place without moving 🙂

So today I couldn’t force myself to start jogging or going by bike anywhere. But I took long walk instead. I’ve sorted out my shopping on the way, but still I haven’t chosen to go by bus. It took me around an hour and half altogether, so I think being active – checked 😀

I’ve done one HTML lesson, which isn’t very impressive (especially that they are very basic classes, just to remind myself what I’ve been learning at school), but at least I haven’t leave it completely. So learning HTML – checked 🙂

Next thing, which is not going to be checked (at least not today), but I think it’s huge step to actually start working on this goal is, that I’ve finally found my Arabic teacher! So even if I haven’t started yet, I am happy about that. And I can’t wait to have my first lesson 😉

And one thing, I am disappointed about today, is that I haven’t write review of book I finished yesterday, but simply I haven’t got enough time for this. But at least, I put all my thoughts about it in my head in right order, so tomorrow, after my work I am going to sort it out as a first. So this isn’t checked yet, but let’s hope it’s going to be tomorrow.

What I’ve forgot to mention yesterday and have been done today as well is plan for next day – checked 🙂 I was thinking if there is really any point to keep planing, but what I’ve realized today is, that it is saving huge amount of time, especially during so lazy days, like this today one. Normally, just to gain another hour (or two) of sitting and thinking what to do (read: sitting and doing nothing). Today I couldn’t use this excuse, as everything was clearly written, so the only thing I could do, was to actually start working 😉

And last thing I’ve done today (to be more precise: I am doing at the moment) was writing this post. So the only think I can do is to mark it – checked.

Whole this day is making me a very happy 🙂 Before, if I decided in the morning about staying in bed, this exactly what was taking place. That’s how a lot of my days was being wasted. Today it wasn’t very productive time, but some of my stuff are already done. So no matter how I am going to call this day in the future, for sure it won’t be “another wasted day” 🙂

I think this is going to be end of this post, as I am getting a little tired. The only thing I am dreaming about at this moment is to go to bed and read one, maybe two chapters of next book and sleep straight after.

That’s why I wish all of you extremely productive days and having all your dreams becoming a reality. But for now I wish you good night (or day if there is brightly behind your window) and I can’t wait to write you about my next day 🙂

My only request is, if you are having any ways to get some motivation and they are working for you, please let me know in comment below 🙂 I will be very happy to try it myself 😉 Again have a good and productive time 🙂

P.S. What I’ve decided I won’t keep my timing as I promised in my first post. But not because of laziness, but what I’ve realized today, sometimes at 11 pm I still think like do something (like doing plan for next day, for instance 😉 ), so post is going to appear every day, as it was said, but without any time precised. When I will feel, that I am not going to do anything else this day, I will be sitting in front of my screen and produce post for you. Just not to lose my do-it-now attitude 😉 And I think, that any way time, when all work is done is the best time, so my summary will contain everything what have been done 🙂

P.S.2 If we are talking about summary…

1st day: Achieving goals is actually quite hard work…

Hi guys,

Here is first day of intensive work on my goals. And here I am: excited, motivated and… well, extremely tired (and little bit late as well). I knew, that if I want to change my life and become better version of myself, I will need to spend huge amount of time on performing activities, which are going to bring me closer and finally lead me to my goals. But I haven’t suspected it will be so hard…

So let’s start from the very beginning: yesterday I was so excited about setting up this blog. I was thinking about new things I can do here, on my blog (some of my ideas are already in my “things to do in the future” notebook, to see what I am going to think about them after some time 😉 ). And I felt asleep late.

After my morning came (I wish it would be my nightmare only but it wasn’t). I woke up too late and I had to rush to my work. When I thing about it now, it had some advantages as well, as I went to work by bike and I liked it actually: being active – checked. But great disadvantage was I haven’t eaten my breakfast, what made my day very hard.

When my work time came to the end, there were some chords at home to be done, so I decided to sort them out first (and of course I ate and had my morning coffee – you know, morning coffee taste the best in the afternoon 😉 ) and after that I’ve started helping my dreams come true.

So what have been done? First of all: I’ve started HTML course on youtube and I’ve went through 2 lessons. It hasn’t take me too much time as I’ve learnt some basics of this language in school. I loved it that time (and now I think I am going to love it as well), but haven’t used it for very long time. This way: learn HTML – checked 😀

After I’ve red book. I actually finished it. Not whole today, I’ve started about 2 days ago, today I had only about hundred pages left: improving my English and prepare content – both checked!

And of course post on this blog. A little late, but – checked!

And even if after work I’ve been doing stuff I like to do, I feel tired. I am not sure if I’ve ever been so tired before. And I’ve asked one question to myself: was it worth?

Answer came almost straight away: definitely yes! I think this work will help me appreciate results more. As I will know, that all I have I earned with hard work, time spent on doing all those stuff and finally on having good time.

I hope your work on your goals is going well and bringing you a lot of fun (this second is even more important). Any way I wish you all good luck. Have a good night 🙂
