It's 4:14am and I'm wide awake. Jet lagged. I'm in Paris. My wife is sleeping next to me.
I love Mary Grace. She planned this whole trip for our one year wedding anniversary and I'm loving every minute of it. But right now my only choice is either stare at the ceiling or close my eyes. Jet lagged.
I decided, instead, to be productive... by updating my blog!
Its been three weeks since I last posted something. I promised then to narrow my focus. To narrow down to the most essentials like... updating my blog consistently. So far? I suck.
I struggle on deciding what to focus my time and energy on. I have so many interests and so many ideas, but I'm worried that if I focus on one interest, I might be focusing on the wrong one. Then I would've just wasted my time.
And time is valuable because life is finite, RIGHT?
I said I was going to let go of activities that were stressing me out. I let go of selling online. I stopped my emergency kit drop shipping business. I let go of writing another eBook. Although it is something that I imagine I'd love doing, I'm not sure if writing is really want to do for a living. Maybe. Maybe. But I have to consider the return of time and energy invested to writing. For sure eBooks is a great way to generate passive income. But the one that I've published so far hasn't really paid off. I know I need to improve my marketing skills. They suck. I'll have to figure this out later.
You see, my dilemma is that I can't make up my mind on what passive income business to focus on. I can't decide. I can't focus. I continue to waste my time. I'm preoccupied with generating passive income that it has become a constant stress.
Maybe be the answer is not to focus so much on generating more money, but to actually... find something I am somewhat interested in and then become very good at it. I read about this from Cal Newport who wrote the book So Good They Can't Ignore You. Basically: forget about passion, become good at something, and money (maybe) will come. This entails focusing on one thing and mastering it! (based on the book: The ONE Thing).
I kinda the idea of eliminating a bunch of activities, and focus on one activity. I believe mastery at something, I feel, generates pride because I would feel accomplished.
Hi. I'm Kent and this is my blog. Let me know what you think.
