Track and evaluate.
These 2 things have been the focus of the week for me.
I know, it sounds tedious and boring.
But tedious and boring are what get results.
I recently talked about tracking your time, energy, goals and to-do's in my 'Start a Side Gig' course.
Although I spoke about tracking in terms of your time, energy, and business goals, this concept of tracking is applicable in other areas of your life where you want to get results, like:
But tracking is pointless if you don't evaluate the activities you're tracking.
The goal of tracking is so you can analyze what's working, what's not, and what needs improving.

By tracking and evaluating, I've streamlined my daily activities to focus on the critical few activities that matter.
If you want to start, get my video training to do a Time and Energy Audit.
It's what I used to diagnose my source of overwhelm and lack of focus and time.
This was how I created a simple, structured, and standardized plan with daily, weekly, and monthly to-do's to build my side hustle.
Simple and structured gets done.
Big and complicated gets ditched.
It's these small, nuanced, tweaks we make over time that get big results.
Tracking and evaluating help you know what you can or can't do based on where you are now.
It's a reality check to get honest with yourself.
When you know with objective data exactly where you stand, you can take the steps needed to go where you wanna go.
So start tracking and evaluating the area of your life you've been feeling dissatisfied with so you can take concrete action to improve your situation.
Watch the video training on tracking your time and energy. You can adapt the idea to other areas of your life.
Have a great week!

But to me, it's a symbol of not doing what I told myself I'd do. I have I tendency to be quite hard on myself when I mess up. I used to beat myself up whenever I failed. Now, I allow myself to feel bad about it for a...
Reader, Despite being highly educated, coming from a well-to-do upper-middle-class family, never struggling with money growing up, my financial life was a mess as an adult. I was in a 6-figure business debt and barely making enough to cover my bills. On the outside, I looked successful. I went to good schools, came from a highly functional family, and everyone around me was upper middle class. My friends were lawyers, doctors, and heads of departments. I had a job that objectively paid...
Reader, I'm reading Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence now. I'm going 'aha' at every other chapter... My bias toward purely rational and logical thought was being challenged on every page I turned. But it was also confirming what I discovered recently. And specifically, as it relates to money. What I've read up to this point has confirmed what I've experienced with money in my life. Our emotions are equally important when it comes to decision-making and the actions we take. Yes, even...
