    Ive been doing great this year, ive only had a handful of days off, but its starting to wear on me pretty hard.

    I do ppc and have a few passive income methods but between everything there is hardly time to scratch my ass.

    What do you guys do to alleviate this. I want to walk away for a few days but its foolish to step away from a four figure a day income while its still producing. Unfortunately ppc is not set and forget like everyone says, at least not for me.

    I think I need to find a better balance. But when I grind all day every day its hard to get my mind off of it, and the rest of the world seems to be in black and white in comparison. Its to the point now where im just frustrated most of the day for no reason. Usually I dont know what to do so I just keep working.

    Any advice from someone whos been here?

    Do you listen to music while you work? Try to do something to make the grind a little easier. Or make some free time for yourself, and do something productive in that, so it doesn't feel like you're wasting time while you're not working.

    Try reading a book or learning a new skill, or something like that.

    Yea my music collection is getting pretty expansive. Interesting you say to do something else productive. Its hard to do most things without feeling guilty about not working, but maybe that would help to try something productive in a different way.

    If you are earning four figures a day you should be training in staff to do the grinding work for you.

    In fact you should be training up several people and scaling up. Doesnt mean you sit back but you could spend more time working on the aspects of the job that you feel more suited to.

    I've started reading again after years, because the ritual stewing on the couch just started feeling like such a waste of my life. If you spend your free time actually bettering yourself, or doing something meaningful, it's not wasted time at all, the way I see it. Plus you get a nice change of scenery from your normal routine.

    Lol ^ Don't do this, unless you want your daily earnings to drop from 4 figures to 2...

    Yeah, time to get some staff and train them up. You need a break before you start making mistakes.
    When you are feeling like this it isn't unusual for your subconscious to sabotage you just to get a breather.
    Some R&R will make you come back stronger and you will see some of the benefits of your hard work.
    Nice earnings and good luck.

    Reading is a good suggestion but I think I need to get outside. I was thinking a vacation or something. My eyes are pretty much blood shot every day so any chance I get not to focus on tiny print would be beneficial for my well being.


    Wilson, interesting you say that, cause I was having those thoughts. Like what If I cancelled all my cards and took one day of big profit haha I wouldnt do it but that fact im thinking like that is a sign its wearing on me

    Might be time for a JV or partnership with somebody you trust. Get them to cover you for a few weeks and take a nice holiday.
    And the thing about sabotaging yourself is true, I have done it several times.

    you make 4 figure a day, you can come up and invest in a new system that works on autopilot.

    Making four figures a day you are definitely doing something right, but having to spend your entire time to keep it up, you are definitely doing something wrong. You just need to perfect your last problem so that you are doing four figures a day and fuck all work.

    proof or it not happened.
    i not think if i will ever get a IMe'r girlfriend.

    </joke>

    when i feel bored i go to top sites like mashable , makeuseof read some articles. or i play some flash games.
    it works good for me , but everyone has a different choice. try to find a thing you love.

    there are many things you can do
    buy a pet
    start a website about thing you love (do not monetise it ).

    Get in your car and go for a long drive through the country and try to focus on how blessed you are to be making more money than 90% of the people in the world. Give god thanks and then go and enjoy some of your money by buying yourself something nice or for your lover or your mom, dad who ever.

    How much exercise are you getting? I walk three miles a day in all kinds of weather. Force yourself to walk even if you don't feel like it. I am telling you it works. Your mind clears up and you come home tired but refreshed. Today I walked to the store and chatted for five minutes with the cashier whom I am friendly with. Then I gave a little girl a dollar because she bought candy but was short. I took the time to admire the clear sky. I also admired some bulbs that were coming up on someone's property. I said hello to an elderly woman who I pass on my walk and asked her how her day was going so far. As the saying goes "take some time to smell the roses." You have to do that.
