I find that buying an appropriate domain name gives me enough sense of accomplishment that I can go back to watching porn. Though sometimes its hard not to start a new project without getting a dedicated computer for it. Preferably one capable of playing high-end video games. In case I need to render something. You can never be too prepared.

And don't forget 90'' 4K display - testing responsive design is nothing to be taken lightly!

Posting "action fakes" on the huge "action-fake" thread on the forum is an action-fake!!

:rofl:


Taking time to quote the people who catch you.

Surfing Amazon on prime day just in case there is something that can be used for the business.

I'll be leaving now.

Steve Kamb describes action fakes quite well in his book "Level up your Life". He uses the analogy of "collecting underpants" as action fakes, which doesn't make sense until you see this:

"Collecting underpants" is everything we do to appear busy without doing what we need to do to get results.

Quite an interesting perspective of action fakes!

I'm guilty of this, except I buy it and it sits there for months. Like finishing a book, buying gives the same dopamine spikes and you think you're accomplishing something. It's something I'm working on curbing.

I'll call myself out on this one here:

"It is WAY more important that people know how much bigger and more overwhelming our government is becoming than looking for higher paying writing gigs!"

lol

Researching to buy business or investment , but never take action, because the research never was taken seriously and keep jumping for idea to idea

Additionally, buying and reading his book and joining this forum.

Definitely not action fakes if you do something with what you've learned.

If not, then at least you've at least done something more beneficial than reading mgtow posts.

It is in fact the most deceiving fake actions , when you join self improvement and wealth forums and you never try to become a real one.
joining this forum without taking action is just having another source of self improvement info whiteout using them in real life .

Im going to buy and collect wealth triggers for me to be accountable (from Dan Lok’s video)

Asking on a forum (r/copywriting) if it is possible to get clients during the pandemic.

Asking on the same forum how this behavior is applicable to today's tech.

Coming to a business forum to bitch about business people being “soulless and uninteresting.”

And feeling the need to type this also useless post. :rofl:
