Numerical Goals Update for September

As the summer ends, I’ve crossed another one of my goals off the “to do” list for this year. Let’s see how close I am on the others:

So what did I do?
A couple of weeks slowed down my momentum. The week before last I was out of the office for three of the five work days. That meant I spent less time on promotion than in previous weeks. When I got home, I came down with an infection that zapped me of energy and cut into my work time.

All numbers were up, though. I heard someone say that you “measure what’s important to you” and each and every one of you are important to me. The vast majority of 24,000 or so of you that are referred to in this post don’t interact with me on a regular basis, but a lot do. Thanks for that.

I’m continuing to broadcast daily, but unless something radically changes by the beginning of October, I might need to tweak my schedule to accomodate the fact that I have a month-long freelance gig. What’s sad is that they take Wednesday-Sunday for 17 days and I only get $1700, so it wouldn’t take a lot to replace that income. Oh well, maybe before they need me in the spring.

I think I’m going to launch the Eternity Changers audio podcast sometime this week, so we’ll see if the numbers pick up with that, too.
