    As the title asks, what have you learned today? People make mistakes everyday and I love learning.

    So I am just curious to know what mistake you made today and what you learned from it?

    In truth, I learned to read reviews and use my common sense before parting with my money, for example,
    I had budgeted $1,000 to use on a 6 week trial for routine WP tasks, and considering booking this service,
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/seo-link-building/683634-hire-full-time-virtual-assistant-8-hrs-day-6-days-week-cheaper-than-anywhere.html
    and now have decided to shop around elsewhere.

    Why is it so difficult to find decent and honest hard workers?
    nevermind, thats another question for another day :)

    When I sleep later than usual, I'm behind the rest of the day.
    Doesn't mean I won't do it again when I'm tired, though ;)

    The lesson I have learned today is to always be truthful to everyone you meet and try to not hide your real self just because others might not have the same ideas as you.

    Never isolate yourself, even when you're working.

    Use forums to feel a sense of connection to other like-minded people.

    I don't know of a single person who is happy and isolated. We all need social connections.

    I used to think forums were a waste of time when I first joined because I spent hours everyday browsing BHW, so I completely separated myself from BHW to get work done. However, working completely alone depresses you. Now, I realize that when I spend time on BHW and observe others going through a journey similar to mine, it makes my work more fulfilling knowing that I can communicate with like-minded people.

    Of course, moderate your usage of forums. I try not to spend more than 30 minutes per day on BHW.

    Never go to the gym right after you eat and do abs for 30min in the end. I was so close to trow up and it lasted like 30 min I was in fucking agony. I was sitting in the rain until I did feel little better to walk home.

    I learnt that Basstrackerboats is pronounced "Bass as in ass" and not "bass as in guitar"

    Everyday is an education on this beautiful earth.
