Get Out of Your Rut and Do Something New!
Now with the Soccer World Cup taking place in South Africa, the holidays have been extended to five weeks.
To keep myself productive and not throw any of the precious time away, I have decided to set myself a new goal.
If you keep on the same road day in and day out, you get into a rut, so it is good to get out of your rut and challenge yourself to do something new.
It hit me last night.
My five week break will be used partly to complete my outstanding admin work and prepare for our annual concert, as well as build my own website from scratch.
Okay, so I have been going with the blogging for about a year now with five blog sites up and running, which I still enjoy, but I think I need to challenge myself and learn some new skills by learning to set up and host my own website.
I have been wanting to do this for quite some time, but felt that I never had enough extra time to set aside each day to do this.
As they say there is no better time than the present to learn a new skill, so now that I have the opportunity, I am going to grab it with both hands.
I realize that this is going to be a bit of a challenge for me, being a not so technically brained computer whiz, but imagine the great feeling when I get it right and launch a brand new website into cyberspace.
That is what life is about - setting yourself goals, and working through all the challenges until you achieve what you set out to do.
The personal rewards are well worth the effort.
First things first - I need to educate myself.
I have purchased a few do it yourself e-books, as well as invested in Mark Joyners online affiliate course, so hopefully I am going in fully prepared for what lies ahead.
My goal is to have my website up and running by the 10th of July 2010.
I have decided to write yet another blog, but this time I will tell all you other people out there what it is like to launch your own website.
Starting tomorrow, I will post whenever I do something that leads me closer to my goal.
I would love to have comments and feedback from anybody who has been in the same boat.
