I know that thumbnail image has nothing to do with the title, and it's illogical (that's why this video isn't in Simple Logic series... lol...), but I will try to explain it shortly... It's not a clickbait, believe me... :)

I have recorded this video yesterday when I wasn't in the best "shape"... But, after reading a post about honest diary by @jangle, I've got inspired to create my version of "honesty"...

Also, @achim03 has written a great post about content creation as a business which is a nice addition to the message that I want to send... As Achim said, content creation is a kind of business on blockchain social media platforms, but also in others...

And, like every other business, it requires investments either in money, time, or both... usually both... It is a "solo" job... Yes, you have a community to help, and that's great, but the "creation process" is usually on YOU...

As you are your OWN BOSS, there is no replacement... You have to do the work... In good, or bad... When you are UP, or when you are DOWN... Nobody else will jump in and do your work... And that can be sometimes a problem...

Yesterday, I had a similar problem, but I have managed to solve it... Check out the video...


In the end, I would like to make an update of my current numbers (July 21st, 2020 - monthly target 75%) on #MyHiveGoals:

HIVE POWER - 14,457 / 20,000    72.28%
CTP POWER - 111,693 / 150,000   74.46%
HIVE Followers - 273 / 333      81.98%
LBRY Followers - 960 / 1,500    64.00%

Numbers are going up slowly, but some of them are going too slow... lol... Maybe I have created impossible goals? Will see at the end of the year... ;)

Join us in this awesome #MyHiveGoals and let's grow together! You can find the original post about the challenge by @robwillmann here: https://peakd.com/myhivegoals/@robwillmann/new-challenge-myhivegoals-set-and-achieve-your-goals

Nice refreshing post @ph1102 - It good to remind people that they do not need to be pressuring themselves as there will be times when motivation can be low,
Contingency plans are a great thing and writing extra posts when motivated and keeping them for a rainy day is a great way of maintaining consistency.
However it is also good to say No every now and then, protecting burnout is a must and people need to be prepared for the down days.

hahahah... Yeah, it was a very refreshing post... lol... Full of energy and power! :)

Anyways, this video will serve for me also... like you said, as a reminder for a future "down days"

Thanks for your comment! Appreciate your time and wisdom :)

I am so glad that I was able to bring some form of inspiration. Also, kudos to you for pushing through even when you feel like crap. It's a testimony of character in those moments. It's easier to give up and you didn't. I'm very proud of you!

Thank you so much for your kind words... And thanks again for your inspirational post!

It's easier to give up...

This is that magic EASY button... It exists! :)

I love this! It is so true - when you still #pushon with your duties and/or work even if you don't feel the greatest, there's almost a deeper satisfaction when you come back refreshed later on. You will know that you didn't quit just because a day was bad. Now, granted, on those days, I wouldn't pile on everything so the mention about at least doing the minimum was good. Everyone has different tolerance levels, it's just knowing that balance.

Great video. Zoltan. Thanks for sharing with us & you're right - Janelle is a trooper as well as you! You are the best :) 💜

On "those days" if we don't do the "minimum", we are finishing with a big pile of tasks the next day (or if we had more "bad" days a lot more), and then everything begins as a mountain to climb... and we got demotivated...

Actually, now that I read your comment, I'm even more sure about this "minimum work" theory as a very important... It can trigger the "give-up process" and we don't want to that happen...

Thanks for your support! Always appreciated!

You have to do it regardless of your will to do, pretty right this is how you need to keep pushing :)

Indeed.. and prolonging it for the next day, next week, it will just get worse and harder to "start your engines"...

Great video Zoltan, and yeah I have had quite a few of those not so good days myself lately, just pushing through them and do what needs to be done regardless since otherwise it won't be done, and I hope your headache goes away, keep up your great work.

Yes, it happens to everyone... TO someone more often, to others less, but it happens... And it's important HOW we act in those moments... You have proven record in your everyday hustling here on Hive for that...

There is no way that you didn't experience that, but you just kept your head down and do your work! That's the right attitude!

Thanks for the comment and support!

Hi my friend, I hope you feel better today. It's not easy to do the work when we don't have the energy and I believe that sometimes it is also good to take some time off.

Last week-end I made a trip with my family to visit my brother who lives in the south of the country. We made a nice round trip and stayed in a hotel for a night. I came home with much fresher ideas and could start to create again.

Thank you very much for the shout-out !

Oh, totally agree about the time-off... Usually, we plan that time-offs, and that's totally OK... And fresh ideas do come as a result... As it was in your case...

The problem with this sudden break-outs is that we don't plan them... We just get caught in them and have to find the way to push through them... and then take a break off... lol... :)

Thanks for the comment! I hope that you had a great time with your brother!
