It’s kind of crazy to think that there’s less than three months until the end of the year, until the end of our Peacock Vow deadline. It’s very obvious at this point that I haven’t done as much as I could to achieve my goals, but I haven’t exactly been stagnant either. I’m learning about momentum, effort, and time management and at this point it needs to be more of a conscious decision to make the right decisions. At the beginning of this process, I didn’t really know what the right decisions were, but now I do, and if I’m not making them it’s based on a lack of effort and laziness instead of ignorance.
Along the lines of laziness and right decisions, I’ve also really realized that one of the disadvantages of my job is that if I’m sick or depressed, there’s no one else to do my work for me. I can call out but I can’t get coverage, so to speak. So the first two weeks of October where I barely did anything, really affected my productivity. I guess I’m finally figuring out that this is a full time job that isn’t necessarily super “fun” all the time.
One of the main things I’ve done since we last checked in is strategically sponsor larger blogs that have really increased my following/stats. I kind of can’t believe this isn’t something I’ve done before. If you’re wondering if it’s worth the money for yourself, it is.
Something else I’ve started doing is really jumping in and identifying with “Uncustomary”. I’ve actually begun introducing myself that way to new people and signing my mail that way. Because if I’m going to be this person, then I’m going to be this person.
Michelle and I are doing a giveaway this month, and you have a whole month to enter it. The good news about this is that everyone who enters will receive something, but there will be three “big” winners. The biggest winner will receive a package from both Michelle and myself, the second winner will receive a package from Michelle, and the third winner will receive a package from me. But as long as you enter you’re going to get something from us in the mail. (My packages are guerrilla art kits, just like the ones in my shop, and Michelle’s are mail party kits.)
