Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number three-hundred-one of Operation Achieve Anything. Well, yesterday I celebrated the fact that I’ve made it three-hundred days through this Achieve Anything… book as tasked by the assignment for the day, so we can check that off my list of things to address in this post. While celebrating, I learned that I no longer have a job. What a rough month, first my dog and now this.

Part of me wants to just crawl back into bed and call it a day in hopes that I’ll be in a better mood tomorrow when I start my new job hunt. The other part of me wants to try to take this as the sign that everything happens for a reason and double down on my efforts to clean up all the typos throughout this entire blog. This would allow me to finally start to official market it as a professional site and not just the hobby of a site that it’s been so far, allowing me to generate my own income.

Again, when I talk about earning my own income, the part-time position I need to replace breaks down to a need of only forty-dollars a day when factoring in that I didn’t work on the weekends. I’m an extremely low-maintenance person from learning to live light to facilitate my efforts to live out my dreams. Each month, I’m earning more and more through the ad the I included to the site a couple of months ago. I may be nowhere near my forty-dollar a day target, but the increase it there with zero marketing.

So, maybe this current break in employment is life pointing me in the direction of where I need to focus. Just last week, I ordered a book similar to this daily Achieve Anything… challenge book only with a daily challenge that focuses on marketing. The plan was to bust my ass to clean up this blog by the first of the year to start this new challenge on New Year’s. It was going to be do-able but tight, but now it seems much more possible. Especially since I have one more paycheck left, which, knowing it’s my last, I can stretch out for at least three or four months.

Where I went to bed feeling a bit scared, now I’m feeling much more confident that I can make this worse with the worst case scenario being to give in to take on another part-time job, plus, I also have several other tiny income streams to turn to with more task-based work to fill in the gape where needed. This is me trying to look on the bright side, instead of crawling into my pessimistic hole. Let’s see how this turns out.

So, there you have how I celebrated my first three-hundred days with this book and this positive twist that I’m giving to this current situation might be a sign that it may be helping after all. With that, let’s get on to today’s assignment where the book now wants me to start practicing being quick to amend any wrongs. This is going to be an interesting post because it’s been on my mind since I moved back home following my mid-life crisis/meltdown. As always, you’ll have to wait for tomorrow to read what I have to say on this subject. Until then, it’s now time for me to sign off by saying, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.

Talk to you soon.

Sincerely,

The Wicker Breaker

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
