    Personally, my biggest obstacle is staying concentrated. I work on one website or product, and then when it's 3/4 ready or even time to sell, I get sidetracked. Everyday, that's the battle I face. Staying concentrated for several weeks or months at a time on one project.

    My second obstacle is finding time. College is demanding. Tests, assignments, readings, mid terms, etc.

    What's your biggest obstacle? Time? Money? Motivation? Knowledge?

    Every morning when you look in the mirror, you see staring back at you both your worst enemy and your best friend... so in line with that, my biggest obstacle is myself. It's all mental game.

    Wow, Tony, that is very well said.

    I must say my biggest obstacle is my laziness. Sometimes I am too damn lazy to get things done.

    Indeed! So you change it from a 'should' to a 'must', and then it takes care of itself. Granted, it's very easy to say, but requires mental muscle to do.

    You ever tried nootropics OP? I'm hoping to order some Modafinil next week, can't wait :D
    Also curious how much time you spend on websites? I'd like to get into flipping

    To answer the question, I think my biggest obstacle is time. Since I'm relatively new to IM it can take me days or even weeks to do things that some of you guys could do in a couple hours.

    Echoing Tony D I am my own biggest obstacle but more specifically I will work on something until I come to a brick wall and then I will distract myself with other work. Basically I do a little bit of everything but end up getting nothing substantial done. It's a catch 22 though because I don't feel like I am getting enough done when I work one thing for however long my motivation lasts but I know I get absolutely nothing done when I try to do a little bit of everything. I also don't feel like am doing anything unless I have a browser with 5 tabs open on completely different things.

    To sum up: I am a very strange person :(

    Hyperfocus. You would think that being able to concentrate on one thing for many hours straight would mean that I'm making a lot of money online, but this isn't true for me. Unfortunately, I end up concentrating on the wrong things. Yesterday, for example, I spent 5 hours watching a pc fan that I partially turned into a wind turbine spin.
