I read all the books I could, I gained all the knowledge necessary, beaten all my addictions. I believe now is the time to take action, anything other than that is already procrastination. So this is a diary of my progress. I'm committing every morning 6am - 8am and 8pm - 10pm) on my entrepreneurial journey.

==>Got too tired by the night. Decided to just stop and rest

I wasn't able to work on my own project since there was a lot of things happening in my personal life. Simply said, I got a new job. Time to get back to hustling!

Feb 8 - Feb 9
FACEPALM, not working on my own stuff

Finally picking back up, I realized I cannot treat my business as a hobby. Its on expert mode, and you need expert levels of effort to play this

I slacked! Suddenly a month has gone by and there was little progress on the business side. Way less than I had hoped.

However I achieved 2 successes, my morning routine has gotten way more consistent and I started a job that has way higher salary.

The problem now is a lack of time. I have problems trying to finish my morning exercise everyday before going to work.

So I should simply focus on Focus!

Mar 11 top 3 things
-Finish the morning exercise after reaching home
- Figure out how to topup money into the wechat pay (Done)
- None

Mar 14th top 3 things
-Buy the goods I always needed from 1688(done)
I kind of f*cked up. I bought a batch of goods from 1688, but sent it to the wrong warehouse. Was sending it to the airport warehouse instead of the sea shipping warehouse. Welp, this will be a lesson to me :/ i guess the money is gone now

Mar 16th top 3 things
- Buy the goods again??
I suppose since I cancelled the transaction on 1688, the goods probably won't be delivered even if it was paid. Big lesson learned. I'll buy several different variants this time so I can test the difference
- Came back from work, but I don't have much energy left. How do you guys keep pushing when your energy tank is zero?

Mar 17th
- Do minor things(buy meds)
- Buy the goods at night

Sorry I have been quite quiet for the past few weeks. My progress diary isn't as bombastic as the others. But I have been working hard, trust me. I finally got the shipment delivered and it is on the way to Malaysia as we speak. It will arrive some time 14th April. I expect that I won't see any tangible progress for the next few months as I fudge and make every mistake imaginable. However, the fruits will come sooner or later.

Other than that, I have been furiously househunting whenever I am off work. It is the best time to buy a house and I'm not going to ignore this chance. Been eye-ing a few old house in a strategic location, but the apartment's management is absolutely horrific as I've been told. But the strategic location still makes it a good buy.

Career wise, I got a job offer as an IT contractor for RM13k a month no benefits no leave(over here the average income is RM3k a month). I should have asked for more as I wasn't keen on leaving my current job (9k a month + benefits).

Timewise, I'm still trying to optimize my time whenever possible as I feel I am not moving fast enough. A bunch of my time is being used in exercising and travelling to work. I'm planning to start cooking at home to use the lunchtime for work. Then maybe hire a maid to do a housework. Maybe

I suppose it has been a while since I replied. I got the goods I brought from China. I ordered 10 units but only 2 arrived, so I lodged a complaint on 1688.
I guess this is my first snag. Next time? Get a quantity checking service.

Good news is for the two units that arrived, it was sold almost immediately. Yay for money!

Also I have purchased a property near a university and planning to renovate it for it to become a student lodging. Now Im in the process of applying for loans. Property market is also crazy here in Malaysia.

All in all, quite a good progress, I felt a little fatigue, thus I fell off my routine and started binge watching youtube. However it still wasn't as bad as a few years ago. I'm confident I'll get back on track in a few days :) Thanks for listening
