Today, I am struggling. I want to learn more about promoting our site, but I find it boring. I’d rather be paying bills, or checking email, or goofing around on social media.
SEO’s, affiliate marketing, key words, meta descriptions, blah, blah, blah. It’s like learning another language, except that I’d rather be learning another language, like Italian or Swahili, instead of this.
I’d rather be outside in the warmth of the South Carolina wind, as remnants of Hurricane Michael pays the coast a visit.
I’d rather be writing to you, complaining about not wanting to learn this.
I’d rather be on vacation in Charleston, than working while here.
But the reality of life is this. I am here because I’m not on vacation. I am here and everywhere because of our website. We have chosen to create a life free from the constraints of a 9 to 5 job, giving us freedom to be anywhere we want to be.
So, I’d rather be learning affiliate marketing building something I’m passionate about than trudging into work everyday living for Friday and dreading Monday.
I’d rather be learning something new than stuck at something old.
I’d rather be sitting at Starbucks in Charleston, South Carolina, creating my own schedule, rather than following somebody else’s.
I’d rather be here on a budget, than not here at all.
I’d rather be struggling with this, than struggling with nothing at all.
On that note, here’s to learning something new to create something great!
Time to get back to work.
