All that restless energy is begging for an outlet. If you're already doing as much as you can/should/need-to do in a day for your business, how about courses? Or learning a new skill? There are lots of free courses on EdX. I'm interested in more sophisticated financing, and biotech, so I'm doing this one at the moment:


Daughter is taking a critical thinking course after she finishes her school stuff. Also on EdX.

Well, have fun out there.

I see... so you really are one of the Marx brothers.

And where are you taking the course of antibiotics? Have you gotten it there yet? What's takin' ya so long to get it there, anyway?

Jeez I'm glad someone recognizes the Marx brothers still. I'm proclaiming the Sanity Clause. What, you mean Sanity Clause doesn't exist. The only Marx worth listening to in my book lol. Edit by pedantic side of me. There is no Sanity Clause.

Not taking any courses, but spending time learning how to use the various services included in Firebase

So... self-guided learning. :smile:

Cool! Maybe my title should have been "Who's learning something useful"... that sounds like a great idea :)

- Edit - Changed the thread title. Yay!

I’m tryna figure out which niche to focus on for freelance writing so I can learn all about that and be badass. I need to comment on Lex’s thread and officially thank him but I’m refusing to do it until I get to $500 earned. I’m almost there. I started the account like three weeks ago I think. I need a niche. The goal is to be a great business or Christian or dating or pedagogy writer that actually makes a ton of money. There was a guy on this forum who essentially did Lex’s Upwork thing w/ a focus on finance but for the life of me I can’t find his thread again. Basically I’m learning an entirely new career.

Anyways.. I’m in the middle stage of not narrowing down my focus yet and it’s slightly.. perplexing.

Meanwhile.. I’m learning touch typing, Welsh, and Tai Chi. I tried to find a free program for learning Jiu jitsu the other day but couldn’t find a good one without having to pay.

I’m ridiculously relaxed, safe, with a huge backyard.. tons of food, access to 400 acres of forest about half a mile away and my kids are hugging family members every night around the kitchen table after spending their day actually studying stuff they like.

This pandemic is really workin for me right now. Lol.

This week I’m gonna learn how to make marshmallows from scratch.

Good thinking mate!

I've already doubled down on courses and doubling my output with it.

I'm busier now than when I had a job!

Alot of irons are in the fire.

With my business 100% stopped due to Covid-19, I'm trying not to lose my time on top of it and learning how to code in JavaScript. Hopefully I'll soon be able to build a prototype for a web based service idea I have in mind. We'll see if it ends up being helpful, but at the very least it's much better than doing nothing!

I’m learning how crap Google Shopping and Dynamic Search Ads can be (the search terms are awful).

I’m dipping in and out of the Audible version of “Never Split The Difference”, and a Udemy course on “How To Start A Profitable Video Marketing Agency”.

So interesting to see what everybody else is doing!
I'm always learning something, but right now I'm taking a few online courses on Social/Environmental Entrepreneurship, plus learning 3D stuff (Blender mainly).
Funnily enough, I had started learning Korean a couple of months ago, but decided to kinda put it on the back burner for these couple of months to focus on more "work" related learning.

I wish I had time to take a couple of courses in literature and history, but I don't want to spread my mental focus too thin right now. I'm still reading every day anyway, so I get my usual dose of "culture" and biz skills that way too.

Observing great case studies from a marketing perspective on Social Media Successes and Fails.

For example one day you post a beautiful image of your 500 +Million Yacht in a beautiful sunset on the seas and a quote about the sacrifices of Isolation..next day you deleted your account. :)


Also learned never get rid of your Pandemic Agency when you may need one.

I`ve been looking into Audible books around marketing and sales.
Finished Cashvertising and Never Split the Difference.

Most of the time I`m working though.
Trying to get ahead of the tasks before the next sprint ends (building a SaaS).
If all goes as planned we`ll be out of beta by july.

I'm trying to make the most of my time inside. When it's over I'll come out as a better person. Here's what I focus on every single day:
  • Starting and growing my webdesign biz, doing the Fox Webschool program at the moment.
  • Wim Hof method
  • Yoga
  • Language learning

Books (I'm always reading): The Urban Monk, The Art of Captivating Conversation, Audio book: Quantum Memory.

My routine is pretty solid after three plus weeks of this quarantining.

- Read a LOT more than I usually do everyday
- 75HARD Challenge which includes a walk in the morning and evening home workout. I have also had to get creative and start learning how to make basic meals for myself as usually I eat out (healthy restaurants) but 99% of them are closed.
- Cyber Security course by ProfessorMesser which is related to a career I want to get into. My rate of study had been very slow for a massive course & exam that needs 80%+ to pass. I'm studying a lot more now. My Real Estate business/investing is going well but I could do it alongside a 9-5 so why not. It will benefit me in terms of using career money for personal spending and allow me to reinvest business cash 100%. Also helpful with financing purchases. I have 2 year Advanced Certificate in Software Development so this was already in the same field I had studied previously in college.

I am learning how to delegate instead of working beyond my capacity. :D

I also hope to soon have a better documented system for my business instead of simply winging it. This will also make future delegation a little easier.
