    No, I don't normally goof around on the internet when I need to work.

    I meant it more like having to find a way to climb down, then climbing down, then running the distance, then finding a way to climb up, climbing up, and at the end of the "tunnel"... or by the end of the tunnel... I'll have made enough money for my humble dreams...

    And with some luck maybe even more than that for the not so humble of my dreams...

    I guess the picture can be interpreted in 2 ways.

    One that one wastes time on the internet instead of chasing their dreams...

    The other that one goes through the internet in an effort to achieve their dreams...

    Just, this being an Internet Marketing forum I assumed the second one would be interpreted...

    lol the image is implying (inferring?...english majors I always get that one wrong) that the Internet is a time sink. And yes, happens to me all the time. If I actually focused, I'd probably have 4-6 hour work days and could chill the rest.

    I wish I had adderall

    Well, in that case, the pit should be named "Girlfriend/Unnecessary Crap", and there should be a bridge over it named "Internet".

    Right. Makes sense.

    But it reasons with me that it's Extremely difficult to climb down there, cross it, and then climb up. Extremely difficult, time-consuming, tedious, dangerous... but if you manage to do it, you will get where you want to get...

    I'd put the girlfriend/unnecessary crap on the bridge... you know, an easy to cross bridge with the sun shining on you and people there and fresh air and things... all wasteful shit taking you away from the internet = money = dreams!

    Maybe it's just me though :)

    That image is so strange to me, especially considering I've always used the internet to reach my goals!! Perhaps you could try changing your perspective. Perhaps you could see that hole as an opportunity, and not a challenge.

    I won't tell you how because that would ruin the fun of discovering a new niche. But seriously, change the way you view things and you'll change the way you succeed.

    My goal was 10 hours but only I do 8 hours, so I'm now a failure at being a pervert.

    Well sometimes I experience that too. The internet has paved way to do business easily and achieve our goals but it also created a means to distract us from focusing on said goals. Various social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even Youtube can take so much of our time and even make us too occupied to the point that we have wasted precious hours without realizing it.

    That poor, depressed mfkr who created that PIT....... COULD HAVE created a big, beautiful mountain instead but he didn't. You know why? Cause he's just a poor, depressed bastard who sees the glass half empty rather than half full.

    In fact, you could make an excellent infographic by doing this.

    Clone that graphic. Then fill in the pit with brown. Throw a brown mountain on top with flowers and shit. Write "internet". THEN put a rainbow after.

    Next, put both graphics side by side.

    In the 1 with the pit write up top "Those Who Fail Online".
    In the 1 with the mountain write "Those Who Succeed".

    It's all about perspective. :)
