Entrepreneur, a day off is not really a day off
Today is a day off from work for me…that’s from my regular job…not from being an entrepreneur. As an entrepreneur, I have the option to take today off…but I work for the toughest boss ever…myself.
That means I rarely take days off. There may be some days that I don’t post on my blog but that doesn’t mean I’m taking the day off.
This blog is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more that you don’t see.
By no means am I complaining about working today. I enjoy it…most of the time…just being honest.
It has been a cloudy, rainy morning. Though it makes a good atmosphere for writing, it’s not how I pictured my day off in Hawaii.
For me, today is a chance to catch up on a few things. The first thing I did when I woke up was check my email…nothing too exciting. The next thing I did was sit down and write out a “To Do” list. This was nothing extensive, just a few important things that I want to accomplish today. The list reads…
Tax Preparation (actually says Prep) – Documents (Docs) and Receipts
“It’s not how much money you make. It’s how much you keep!” I know that’s a quote from someone, not sure who. Probably Robert Kiyosaki. It’s a very important philosophy for an entrepreneur to remember. You should definitely look into tax strategies if you have or are interested in starting an online business (or any business for that matter). You can find books to help you along this journey and more in my Recommended Reading section.
Last year, I collected my receipts and kept them in a box. Today, I need to actually organize them so I will be ready for my tax appointment. It’s not until next month but I just want to make sure I’m prepared now. I know there will be some missing receipts I will have to hunt down.
Blog Post (Pictures/Video?)
It is a must that I include this blog post on my list. Well, originally, it was supposed to be this blog post but now that I have began writing, I can tell that the information I wanted to include will not make it on this post. It would make this post excessively long because there is enough information for it to be it’s own post. It’s still good to have it on my list…it just means I’m working on two posts today instead of one. Make sure you tune in for tomorrow’s post and you will see what I had to write about.
It says pictures and/or videos so I just put myself on the hook to deliver one or both. Sometimes you have to do that to make sure it gets done!
This is just a reminder to me that I need to do something healthy today because one of my goals for the year is to improve my fitness. By adding this to my list, it makes me more conscious of what I eat and how active I am. I have a Reminder on my iPhone that tells me every day to go running. It’s up to me to ensure I actually do it. If the weather clears up today, it’s definitely on my “To Do” list. If the weather doesn’t, I need to find something else to do.
I know this list may seem small to you but these are the main tasks that I want to accomplish today. Of course, I’m still doing other things that may pop up during the day but this is where I will focus.
