Online Income Challenge Update

I know I’ve been missing in action but I’ve steadily been working on improving myself and my environment. If you remember I challenged myself to find a way to make $100 online during the monthly of July.

I set the goal and then sat around for almost 2 weeks thinking of how to achieve the goal I’d set. I was drawing a blank and spinning tires.

I thought reading to stimulate my mind and went looking for Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I was bummed that it wasn’t available at my local libraries and didn’t want to invest in purchasing the book at the moment.

On a whim, I searched on YouTube and found the full audiobook so I dove in. I’ve listened to the book in a 2 hour sit down and since have re listened at least 5 times. This book is a complete game changer for me. I won’t talk too long about how much I’m a new fan of the book. I first read and applied the principles on July the 10th and I’m happy to show how not only I’ve reached my goal I actually went over the goal.

Use the Mind Mapping Technique to Increase Productivity

What is Mind Mapping?

“A mind map is a diagram used to visually outline information. A mind map is often created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added. Major categories radiate from a central node, and lesser categories are sub-branches of larger branches.[1] Categories can represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items related to a central key word or idea.
Mind maps can be drawn by hand, either as “rough notes” during a lecture or meeting, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available. An example of a rough mind map is illustrated.”

I’m going to sit down in my office tonight and create mind maps for 2 passive income ideas I want to bring into fruition. My biggest problem is focusing on what I need to accomplish. I picked up this tip from Pat Flynn on his mind hacks podcast episode #12. I’ll let you know how it goes tonight. Do you have any tips that work for you? I cant be the only person who maintains a full and part time job in addition to raising a 3 year old. Thanks in advance for your productivity hacks.
