My Journey–From Developer To Entrepreneur–Day 15 of 100

Day Fifteen,  Friday 21st August 2015

Notes from Yesterday:

Thursday was energetic and so forth. Nice lovely day which was including so many things at once. Something good I learned about it, And that was just keep flowing no matter what happen, develop habit of being stubborn on your schedules and work. Even after few session  mind starts wondering and all you have to do is talk to inner self and make mental dialogue with it and shift your focus to the time and space you are currently in. Rest of things are just going to happen as it should be.

 

Plan for today:

9:30 am 4 hours Decided to upgrade to Windows 10 and setting up Office PC for work Update to Windows 10 from windows 7 trying to get my hands on still. Work hard for adopting that. Let us see how well it works.

Around 11 in the night after reach at home, I was standing outside in my backyard. I saw a beautiful clear sky after long time. Stars were like glaring and my mind was trying connect virtual dots to shape it. I felt like all the stars were also looking at me same time. It was wonderful feeling though, in my childhood I used to stare sky for hours and hours. It was wonderful feeling, I am not sure how long I was staring at it. It refreshed my mind and I completely forgot about tiredness.

Day Fourteen,  Thursday 20th August 2015

Notes from Yesterday:

After starting my journey, I have realize that I have more potential than ever. I think what I lack is discipline and courage to be more stubborn to my actions, need to learn to stick to my plans and execution, That is what successful people can do differently then me.

Plan for today:

Today was no such plan and not even visualized what to do. All was on the paper but dreadful. However I have recovered later on and happy to say I was motivated to finish something, get into the action.

 

Time Hours Plan Action Result
6:30 am 2 hours Sort out paperwork, not have any plans, start my day early though Restless feeling about things and stuff lying around the Table. Feeling terrible about the mess.
8:30 am 4.5 hours Sort of mishap in everywhere, not focus not even productive nothing planned. Running like a headless chicken, what to do next not sure. Some failed trades made me mad, Anxious, anxiety, hyper stress, defocussed, slightly depress too. Am I doing too much together.? Don’t think so.
1:30 pm 4 hours Gather myself, done some visualization what exactly I want in my life, using the secret technique – law of attraction. Shift my focus on positive. Make a plan, printout my wall sickies, write down ctrader Spot Gold fxBot Project in the book, Put positive thoughts to get done. Now this was what I exactly want to be and how it should be execute everything.
6:00 pm 5 hour Need to attend social function, meet few peoples All good, nice break, way was lost, no wonder we are more dependant on technologies. Long but tiring.
11:00 pm 1 hour Write and update blog entry. Yes I did and happy with it. Next day planning also.

 

Overall, not so bad day as I thought , I have learnt new things and try to accept my losses, accept my mistakes and learn from it quickly and move on. One thing in this process I have observed that even though I am failing or failed but I am still moving which is good sign. Just Keep moving every single day. No matter what. Something Motivational quote I found as below:

All my action are intentional, no matter what. I see every action before I take. Today is my Day.

Day Eleven, Monday 17th August 2015

Notes from Yesterday:

Yesterday was an up bit and later on day it was tiring and aching body after long picnic. Although it was real good fun and enjoyed it at full. In the late evening I was so tired not bother for updating articles or anything. So just updating today. It seems to me that I have loosen up little interest in recording the progress and I admit it, it’s very little progress at the moment but I am not going to give up that easily. So I have decided to become more productive on the other side and write my long term goals and precisely describe it how I am going to achieve it and what steps I am going to do, I am going to even break it further. I want to visualize my goals as happening and achieve it exactly as I go.

Day Nine, Saturday 15th August 2015

Notes from Yesterday:

Yesterday was mix bag of everything, i was feeling drain down and not motivated, I was struggling to focus on something which I wanted to achieve quickly. I was all over the place.It was like direction less sailing and wandering in hopeless dessert. Over the top emotionally, physically, mentally it was dreadful. So far admitting like this is brave move.

Lesson learn: “Plan your day,week well ahead and when you plan it visualize it in your mind well ahead how it is going to be done, execute it and think like you have already done it. And when it come to a point when you are going out of control or things are not working as it should be then check with your visualization have you put enough details to it in forehand.”

Plan for today:

Notes from Yesterday:

So started bit laid back but later on  I was able to recover my productive thoughts and ideas, I started bit late and hassle gone through stress,but other than the working part I was so motivated later in the day. When you try to something and if it is constantly on your mind, your mind start to observe and creates a way to make it happen, I could see it, visualize it, feel it, through my heart and mind.

Wednesday 12th August 2015

Notes from Yesterday:

Yesterday Morning was good but afternoon was not productive as I can see only reason behind that was lack of planning and motivation to start something which was over due.
