Documenting My Journey 1/14/20

When I coded every day last year, I documented what I learned every single day in a public blog (here, here, and here).

Blogging did three things:

  1. Kept me accountable
  2. Organized my reference material, findings, and thoughts
  3. Shared said information with others who also want to learn

I want to do the same with my entrepreneurial journey. Maybe it will help others learn. Though, I’m not committing to blogging everyday.

Getting Priorities Straight

Normally, I go immediately into coding after my morning routine. But I wanted to get my priorities straightened out. To help with prioritization, I journaled for a bit on before starting work.

After reflecting and brainstorming, I settled on this half fleshed out 30 day goal:

  1. Start selling on Ebay
  2. Use the money I make to test business ideas through fake ads
  3. Once I settle on an idea, continue to use Ebay to fund the business

I want to go with a small business idea that’s easy to start. Like one-on-one services or group events. Then scale the business up. The business ideas I came up with all revolve around my passions: food, fitness, health, or lucid dreaming. And of course I can utilize my new found tech skills.


For the next 5 days, I plan to work on Ebay. Made my first listing today. I reached out to an experienced Ebay-er for advice.


I worked on my helpmecode project by writing an article on how to use the #helpmecode hashtag.

What Could I Have Done Better?

I felt tired today. Because I felt tired, laziness ensued and I went on social media more than necessary. But, I was also productive on social media, so it wasn’t all that bad.

I think I was tired because I ate late meals the last few nights. Late meals raise my heart rate while sleeping. I’m back to fasting after 5pm. With this adjustment, hopefully, my sleep will improve.
