    I need to crack down on the 12 tools for success you gave out. I did part of it, but I’m going finish it up and get my daily routine in place. I must start setting deadlines and a set of daily to dos so I take action.

    I find myself just sitting around waiting for products to be shipped, and just making a mediocre effort. I say to myself that I’ll work hard when I need to work hard. I’m definitely being lazy. Sometimes I find myself playing video games instead of working on my business that could change my life. I don’t think I’ve been fully respecting the future value the business will bring. But furthermore, I don’t think I’ve been respecting the future value in all of the little things I could be working. Its almost like eating healthy for the future, or eating like shit for the immediate feel good benefit. In the sense of my work ethic, I’ve often been eating like shit and hoping things will work out. I put things off unless I know it needs to be done. If I see that something needs to be done 100%, I do it, but I haven’t been going the extra mile to ensure success.

    I quit my main job, but it really hasn’t given me much of a burning desire. I think it’s because I feel that I got my parents to fall back on. If I were to be evicted from my home and have no where to go, I think it would be much stronger. I’ve come to the realization that a lot of my burning desire will have to come from the daily discipline and focusing on my goal and what it will do for me.
