Today I have been flat out. My new website is getting a bit of publicity tomorrow though a podcast, the only probably is I still don’t have everything set up yet.
The little things you think will be simple take so much longer than expected and it just keeps pushing back the launch.
What doesn’t help is I left all the articles and screen shots that were supposed to be launched tomorrow on a memory stick in my jacket pocket at work so that is not ideal either.
The further into the launch you go the more you realise you have missed something or need to learn another aspect of the software you use or learn a whole new skill all together.
I’m not going to lie it becomes bloody frustrating and your time seems to constantly get eaten up by work, other commitments and things you honesty couldn’t care less about. Sometimes I wish I could just get away to some remote area for a week and just work on everything I want to work on.
Like with everything it is often easy to learn the basics and you can have more knowledge about a topic than 99% of your peers. It’s when you start getting into the pointy end and complexities of a task that you realise that the last 10% you need to learn is just as hard if not harder than the first 90%.
I am getting to the point in my life now when I need to start putting together the pieces to live the life I want to live. I know I am wasting way too much time with things I don’t care about just to pay the bills.
That’s all I want in life. To have available time to work on and do the things I want to do. I don’t want to be spending 8 hours a day 5 days a week in an office when the sky is crystal blue outside and there is a world to be explored. What a waste!
Tonight is a short blog because I will be typing articles all night in an attempt to get everything ready for the new website tomorrow despite leaving most of the information on a memory stick at work.
