7RRRF Update

Well it’s been about a month since I did the product challenge. It was a fun experience and with it I came with a pre-release version of 7 Recurring Revenue Recipes for Freelancers (or 7RRRF thanks to a reader). Here are all the things I’ve actually done:

If you looked at that list closely you’ll notice 7RRRF still isn’t done. Taking from the above list these are the only items I really had to do:

What’s the point of all this? Well, stealing a tip from Warren Buffet I have a list of things that I have to avoid at all costs in order to get the pre-release version of the book done.

The next basketball game I’ve got tickets to go to (and promised my son) is Tuesday the 27th. I’m committing to get the Section complete version of 7RRRF done by then.

Friday Update

Yesterday was a success. Finished all my client work plus the Productized Consulting recipe in my book. I tried my best to avoid all the unnecessary things like the plague. My moments of “relaxation” were replaced with laundry, dishes, and gathering wood for the fireplace. This sounds more like a first world problem and I’m sure I can adapt with a mental shift. My only “cheat” was buying this shirt.

Wednesday Update

So I missed the deadline. Despite the blistering pace I kept up I was only one Recipe short. The good news is that the number of pages for the book has virtually doubled. I was able to avoid must of my time sinks like the plague but realized I wasn’t allowing myself much needed vegging time. I think I’ll be able to wrap up the last recipe tonight and then take a break and think about next steps.
