Short but intensive week (Yom Kippur Sunday-Monday) and holiday season is upon us.
It was more family time.

Health
Did 2 1-hour walks and rode bicycles with my kids.
Gym still closed for the next few weeks.

Money
Billed customers on Wednesday.
A work colleague discussed an opportunity he had with me, and how he can't take it. Suggested to help him and take it together.

      2. A colleague approached me about a project I'm in - so I helped him reach a person of interest.
Books
Finally finished reading H.N. Bialik biography (Israel national poet).

I'm enjoying the last day of my time off and am ready to take things to the next level. Let's go.

Health = I've decided to refrain from going to the gym for now this way I don't put myself at risk for COVID19 again. If I wasn't seeing my family in a couple weeks I would go but its cool. So instead its all about working out at home and running 5ks twice a week. I've been averaging a little under 33 minutes for my previous 5ks. I've also decided to stick to the stuff I was doing when I had COVID19 which was adding vitamin C and zinc to my multivitamin that I take after my first meal.

I'll also keep on drinking tea twice a day as well right along with drinking water with lemon juice. All good stuff that I plan to continue from here on in.

Vocation/Money = Uber Eats has still deactivated my account because of COVID19. I shouldn't have requested the support lol, this wouldn't be happening. Shouldn't be too complicated to reactivate but I'm not too worried about it. Worst comes to worst I can deliver for someone else like Door Dash or something if push comes to shove. Got plenty of money in savings to harass potential clients either way.

If I am reactivated tomorrow, I'll be working on my freelance writing services website starting tomorrow. Should be up and running with good samples by Friday either way.

Chicks = I'm starting to hunt like crazy online now. I'm also doing a bit of day game too, when bowling. I also went to an outdoor show at the golf course I used to work at and did a bit of day game there too. Well it was during the night, but it was a day game environment.

Learning = Alright, I'm planning to buy The Millionaire Fastlane in the next couple days. I'll get the audiobook this way I don't have yet another book that I need to lug around. Or I'll get a pdf version if necessary. I also decided to favorite a whole bunch of classes on Skillshare on blogging that I will be taking when I can this month. Gonna use the last quarter of this year to completely set everything up when it comes to my businesses because I will admit that I have no real idea what I'm doing when it comes to making email lists or membership sites, both of which I could profit like crazy from.

I haven't written on a Sunday in weeks. I've been recuperating as best as I can. Though I love to be active, and it's an exciting time for my work.

This week I:

- Wrote the campaign for my email welcome sequence.
- Drafted LinkedIN blog posts to be scheduled.
- Setup 3 dates.
- Onboarded a new model.
- Started a partnership with another modeling agency.
- Scheduled tweets for the upcoming week.
- Began preparing a project with a SMIC Brother.
- Studied 3 more books in the Bible.

That's that for now. Here's to the new week.

Health = Ran my usual 5k on Wednesday and yesterday. As well as my usual home workout: Push ups, squats, the usual.

Money/vocation/business = I'm just applying for gigs at this point. Uber Eats is being really stupid, account is still deactivated and it has been nearly a month. I'm applying for Doordash tomorrow so I can at least do some driving stuff during the last half of this month. I was going to build my freelance writing website but like with most things, my perfectionism has gotten in the way and I didn't do it. I'm afraid I'm going to do it all wrong. I really need to check out some resources on how to address this when it comes to vocation related stuff because its killing me.

It's funny, with everything else I have no concept of perfectionism at all. With chicks I just invite them on dates after chatting for a bit without a second thought. Same with health: Just don't eat fast food, stay active, and I'm good. But when it comes to this kind of stuff I put so much unnecessary pressure on myself and EVERYTHING seems like a big mystery to me that I get further and further away from solving. Been like this for a lot longer than I'll ever care to admit. Guess I just need a strong set of fundamentals to follow or something.

Chicks = Still just hunting away, we'll see what happens. Don't really care about chicks at the moment tbh.

Learning = Wound up not doing any of the stuff I announced I would do last week, not good. Instead I just dove into blogging related stuff. What I might actually do is use the time I'm spending with my family to listen to Millionaire Fastlane. Like listen to it in the car or something then listen to it again when I'm there and take notes or whatever.

Hectic week it was, and I'm here to report it.

Health
Keep on walking. Alone or with MLTR.
Also rode bike with kids.
Gym still closed for the next few weeks.

Money
  • Called a collogue regarding the large scale project I want to be part of. No dice, but offered to assist if I can get a contact inside a government entity which they have a contract with. Meeting scheduled for next week.
  • Got a LinkedIn contact that asked for an online call. There is possible match, so the call was scheduled for this week.
  • Declined participating in a tender after looking up the fine print.

Networking and Friends assistance
  • Helping Friends
    1. Job-seeking friends - Now helping one of my MLTR who was just fired.
    2. Friends with "romantic" issues - he was diagnosed with COVID, so I called him to cheer him up.
    3. Another friend who tries to push himself through the world - needed some push again to start doing things.

        Also added sending birthdays wishes and saying I'm here for them.
      2. Chatted on Linkedin with 3 guys but nothing stuck.

Health = LMAO no wins here, since my family thought I was famished even though I only lost about 15 lbs. Cheated on my diet that entire weekend lol.

Money/Business = I am BACK on Uber Eats! Feels sooooo good to do this again! Also am working on some assignments as well. So the rest of the month I'll be doing Uber Eats until it gets dark out, eat, write a bit, go to the gym, then get home, take my ice bath, then eat again as the day ends. I also made $20 playing blackjack after visiting my family.

Chicks = Trying to line up a date with a Tinder chick. Been getting more matches than usual on it even though my profile sucks.

Learning = Finished the 10k follower challenge thing on the fb group I joined. I'm not gonna spend a lot of money on new courses/books quite yet since I just dropped nearly $500 on car repairs as well as another COVID19 test.

Another busy week, lots of action

Health
Keep on walking. started also to run.
Gym still closed for the next few weeks.

Went to see my dentist and skin doctor - all is well.

Money
  • New potential long term project - got a call from my contact, and he was asking for reassurances that I can do the job. Did my best, and also sent him samples of my work. Waiting for reply.
  • Got a LinkedIn contact that asked for an online call - call happened. We may have some things in common. Agreed that I introduce them to local companies and they'll send me a "partner's agreement". AI on me.
  • Got an "on hold" request from one of my new clients. The work we started was held up by the customer for evaluation.
Networking and Friends assistance
  • Helping Friends
    1. Job-seeking friends - Now helping one of my MLTR who was just fired. Also got approached on LI by a 25 year old industrial engineer student who asked me to help her. Let's see what might come out of that.
    2. Another friend who tries to push himself through the world - he's doing a crowdfunding thing, and it's not that well. Tried to push him through, asking him to make more content and publish it to support the effort.
    3. Networking
      1. Continuing my new policy on LinkedIN - everyone who connects with me gets a "How can I help you" message. See MONEY.
        Also added sending birthdays wishes and saying I'm here for them.
      2. On reserve duty this week so let's see what I can pick up there..
Books
"The art of the deal" by the man himself (Trump). This is an autobiography which gives some insights into his early days (1970s and 1980s). Also re-read "The people Trap" by Robert Sheckley (Good Sci-Fi collection of stories).

Learning
Some online seminars:
  • "Parenting and the view point of the child" - nice online seminar about how to understand your kids. Seems I'm already doing some of it. The organizer called later (to try to get a sale) and I introduced her to a large FB group of divorced (I'm indirectly a member as I don't do FB)
  • "Making Ice cream" - a cooking webinar. Dropped it.
And did one of my own - gave an actual webinar to a group organized by a friend on "Smart Cities".

This week is reserve duty, so work will be subsided.

Health = All is well, was kinda slow on my last few 5k runs however. All the college kids who go to my gym around here keep getting COVID19 so I'm staying away from the gym for now. Instead I'll use the gym at my apartment complex which I had no idea was open. Doesn't have nearly as much equipment that I need but that's cool, I'll manage.

Money = Won about $85 at a bowling tournament yesterday, Uber Eats is back on and I'm making a little less than I was previously. Not as many bonuses. It's all good tho. I'm also doing a couple of projects for my clients but it isn't nearly as intense as last month was.

Chicks = Tomorrow I'm going out with a meh looking chick I met off Tinder. I'm still not really hunting as hard as I usually do but I'll take this date. She looks alright for late 40s I suppose.

Learning = I'm kind of interested in Bulldog Mindset, which is a YouTube channel similar to Caleb/Blackdragon. Been getting training videos from him and watched a couple. I'll watch em attentively starting tomorrow.
