9/22 Update: This project is now live at BuyMyFuture.com

Distractions Are A Necessary Evil

As you can see by the big number above (and color change) we’re getting close. Really close. But as of writing this journal entry I’m getting back from a day of disconnectedness. A day completely away from technology.

There is always more work to be done but that isn’t a good reason to do more work.

Someone recently asked me what my launch day (Sept 22) plans were for Project Galaxy. I listed off the things I have planned and the person responded, “that’s it? I would have thought more stuff?”

Of course I could do more. I could plan the entire launch day out with hours of work and commitments. But why? I’ve written before that this project is not just about the money for me. I want to enjoy it. I want to have fun with it. I don’t want to loathe a bunch of work that I put on my own plate just because that’s what other people do with their projects.

Working for yourself means calling all the shots.

I took today off from my to-do items, my inbox, and all the other stuff that goes along with this project. And yeah, I do feel a tad bit guilty for it, but I also feel really refreshed and know I’m running this project exactly how I want to run it.

When launch day rolls around, I’ll do the things I have planned, and I’ll enjoy the moment. I won’t work every single hour of the day. I won’t be stressed out to accomplish every single thing possible.

And now, I’ll leave you with a couple photos from today’s adventure around British Columbia…

Day 51 >>

This entry is part of a 60-day journal I’m writing that will share all my planning, strategies, pre-launch efforts, and marketing tactics leading up to a big crazy project codenamed Project Galaxy. Start reading here.
