September 10: Action and Accountability


  1. Work on the WHY? (Yesterdays List)
    1. Through conversations with a friend of mine, I’ve come to realize I didn’t have a big WHY any more, a cornerstone reason that I have been lost in trying to make decisions and really pursuing my future.  I’ve made strides, but instead of being a focused determined march, it’s been a lackadaisical Sunday saunter. 2am discussions have finally helped me find the next WHY to bring focus to my days, and my business dealings.
    2. I’ve got The 10X Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure scheduled to arrive at the house today, I know I should have read it sooner, but better late than never.  This will help me define my WHY and bring focus to my activities.
    3. As a long range planning strategy, it has fallen by the wayside as I focus on smaller day-to-day issues this week, which violates all kinds of 4Hour Work Week and E-Myth protocols, but it’s still on the to-do list and should be completed soon.
    4. I continue to think, and process my WHY, I just need to get it down in writing.
    5. Wording the WHY is important making sure that it has lasting impact and continues to drive me forward. A couple of the ‘experts’ I’ve talked to always suggest revisions.  Start Big and whittle it down to smaller and more inspirational phrases.
    6. I continue to work on this, and change it.  Last night I joked at a meeting that, my big WHY is a yacht the size of my ego.  It definitely been hard for me to Discover and Voice my WHY.
  2. Continue work on a Contractor Bid Blog Post (Yesterdays List)
    1. Friday was a busy day, and I took the long weekend off to build the mindset of “going to work” and rebuilding my daily routines.
    2. Now that I’ve got a second bid in I can get to work writing an article about my thoughts on the process.
    3. I got a part of it done yesterday.
  3. Schedule Home Inspector Test for Tuesday
    1. I was going to do Monday but then I forgot that I was doing the Puyallup on Monday! I need to schedule it for Tuesday, instead.
  4. Call RdA – again.
  5. Attend REAPS north end meeting
  6. Read 50 pages of the 10X
  7. Email Connections made last night and provide information they were looking for.
  8. Purchase new Computer.
    1. The laptop keeps overheating and dying on me, and I can’t put it off any longer.
