30 Days NO TV – A Real Challenge For The Daring

Has The Television Got You Hypnotized Night After Night?

The TV Had me, and Now I’m taking back what’s mine.

I know… watching TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu or even Youtube can be a lot of fun, but what’s it costing you?

 

For 30 Days, I won’t be watching TV and I hope you’ll join me if you think you need a break.

I intend to go a full 30 days from now without watching, but I really started this challenge a few days ago, and I know it’s going to be a good one.

It’s amazing how easy it is to Binge Watch many of the Easily Available TV series on Amazon Prime or Netflix, and that’s what I was doing.

I got excited about this challenge several days ago, and I began immediately.

What’s even more amazing is how serious the withdrawal symptoms have been. I didn’t know how much I was using TV as an escape until I stopped abruptly.

I kind of lost my self this weekend and became a little violent. Don’t worry, I wasn’t violent towards anyone, but I did break my new office chair when I got upset, and I blew up on more than one occasion. NOT Proud. : )

The good thing is, now I know this is a real challenge; One that’s got me cornered and faced with the reality I live in.

If you’re like me, and determined to make good changes in your life, you might benefit from a TV Break.

Just so you know, I don’t think you have to go to extremes. I’ll be cutting out all TV, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, along with Youtube viewing for the sake of entertainment, but I am allowing some conditional watching during the 30 days.

I’ll watch if…

  • My wife asks me to watch a movie with her, which almost never happens.
  • My kids ask me to watch something for fun during playtime.
  • It’s something relevant to the Niches I follow to learn from.
  • It’s educational, and/or tutorial.

What will you do? Can you Break Up with Your TV for 30 Days?

Let me know if you do, and how it’s going. Peace. : )

How To Make A Decision Or Why You Should

If you’re asking yourself How Do I Make A Decision, Here’s Why You Should!

How To Decide or Why You Should! by Sye Rodriguez

If you’re having trouble making a decision, you’re in the right place.  I’ve had trouble with this for a long time, and something happened yesterday that motivated me to move a long with making decisions.

Decisions are difficult sometimes, but the cost of not making them can be even more difficult to deal with, than the reality of the consequences of your decision.

You’ve heard it said, not making a decision is a decision, and that has it’s own consequences.

But Why are YOU having a tough time deciding?

You obviously want your cake and to eat it too, but the tough reality is, you can’t ALWAYS do that.

The answer to your question of How To Decide, may lie in knowing Why You Should Decide, and the sooner the better.

Plain and simple, you have something to lose if you don’t decide soon.  For me, I wanted to try and work on more than 3 Youtube Channels, build several businesses, and operate more than 20 websites, ALL By Myself.

But… That’s not possible, as life has been showing me, but I continued to try anyway.

The pain lies in the fact that most of what I’ve done is LESS than GREAT because I haven’t been able to dedicate the time needed to create something Amazing, because I’m spread so thin.

Last night, I lost an affiliate account that I’d put a lot of time and energy into creating income with, because the website that I’d associated with the account had too little content on it.

This is a result of not making a decision.

In trying to do so many things, I didn’t do the most important things, so now I’m forced to decide, AND a decision has been made, that I didn’t like, against my will.

So… Going forward, I’m simplifying and this post is a starting point.  I’ve decided to make this website, and the Organic Adventure Show Youtube channel, one of the main things I want to grow.

What does this mean for you?

You’ve got to learn to let go to make a decision.  Let go of the need to CONTROL everything.  You can’t.

It’s not easy, but sitting here writing this post is better than thinking about how I’m going to write a post for several websites and Youtube channels, and it’s meaningful.  It feels good to move forward.

One  more thing…

If you’re still afraid to make a decision, I understand, but it may be helpful to remember, NOTHING is permanent.

Go do what’s the most meaningful to you.

With Love,

Sye
