Over the last year I have to admit, I've been a money chaser.
I've gone from idea, to idea never really getting anything off the ground. Because I change my mind so frequently I never see any success.
It comes down simply to a failure to commit, I'll see an idea and I'll want to do it because I think it'd make more money than whatever I'm currently doing.

This is a bad mindset to have, and mentally I realize I've been rationalizing it.

"I'll make an gaming app, those are hot right now!"
"Making a gaming app is hard and there's no guarantee it'll make money, I'll do copy-writing! That's the ticket!"
"Why make money advertising someone else's product, I'll just make my own!"
"Oh man, I saw a great thread by GrayCode on learning to code, I'll switch over to that!"
"Hm, maybe I could try starting an eCommerce business, I wonder what niche I should do?"
"I could see about starting a leadgen business, that'd be cool!"

These are all things I jumped on and then switched away from in the last year. And because I jumped around so frequently I never made any real progress in any of them, only one actually made me a little money and unsurprisingly it was the one I spent the longest working on.

So now that I've spent a year learning for myself what I had already read before in the Millionaire Fastlane , I took a step back and worked on a basic roadmap of where I actually want to go.

From here on I'm gonna focus on building my sales and advertising skills. My main focuses right now are:
  • Learning Copy-writing and doing freelance work.
  • Setting up a house hack to live rent free.
  • Learning everything I can about sales and advertising.
  • Building a good work ethic, and getting more organized.

I'll be posting weekly updates, and then summarizing everything at the end of each month.

You'd think I'd learn my lesson after the first two progress threads.

Anyways in the last month and a half I did absolutely nothing in terms of business. I did manage to lose about 15 lbs by working on my diet and exercise. I also did some reading, but once again I didn't keep up with my progress thread and stopped focusing on doing any action taking with my business. When do I get my #1 action faker award?

So what are you going to do about it now?

Edit: Meant that as encouraging, not aggressive/douchy.
