    Feel like I need to vent a little.

    I literally haven't stopped working this past week and the annoying thing is that when working on websites you never feel like you've got much done, even if you have. There's never much to show for it.

    Yesterday I marked up 14 hours straight in front of my computer. I didn't even eat until 10pm.

    It is all for a good cause I know but the house is a mess, I haven't showered and i'm becoming agoraphobic. I had to turn the brightness down on my monitor.

    I'm 1k short on money this month so I need to invest my time doing this.

    Anyone else working hard?

    You should take 1 day off just do nothing related to IM for 24 hours

    Don't even think about IM

    not really.
    one hour a day or maximum two hours is enough to have a VERY decent life.
    and sometimes i don't work at all for few days.
    you have to work smart not hard.

    greets, darkstar69

    I have been working hard the last few weeks but I finally mastered my method I was working and the results have been amazing so I'm chilling. But that won't last long :D

    Hard work pays off man!

    This is why I outsource.

    When I start a new project I always work hard initially, but I try to outsource as much work as possible and I work on projects that require little maintenance.

    It doesn't work... at least not for everyone and not all the time. I can drink a 4 pack of Red Bull's and I will still fall asleep... lol

    I just wanna reach my goals faster.

    I have a habit of doing thigns in excess. So before this burst of nonestop working I had a terrible case of lazyness. It seems to be a running theme with me.

    But now I feel determined to make a success of my websites.

    I would rather have a good nights sleep and be more productive the next day.

    Though sometimes I can fall into a trance and work for a long time with positive effects.

    This is exactly what I was doin for the past few months until Google decided to kick me right in the nuts one day. All sites deindexed, $200-$300/day passive income gone overnight. Not to mention I was about to flip a handful of those sites which woulda made me like 50k+. Yeah that sucked. It was nice while it lasted though.

    Now I have to actually start doin shit again...:p

    But yeah I know where you're comin from OP. When I first got into IM I would work a ton and for the longest time I felt like I was goin nowhere. Once you get a method down that you can just rinse and repeat though it gets way easier.

    Don't neglect your health for the money though. Without your health, the money becomes kinda pointless.

    ^^ I actually went through your thread and for some reason I found it quite motivating.
