When I walk Kratos, a.k.a Stock Card's Chief Goof Officer, I listen to podcasts and audiobooks. Most of them are investing related book. And, every now and then, I pick up an interesting self-help or business book. I've been wanting to listen to Tim Ferris' 4-hour workweek forever, and I finally did it last week. The book is not over, but so are most of the books I listen or read. Usually a chapter or a small section resonates with me and I just stop there. Tim Ferris has a chapter about elimination. He suggests, every day in the morning identify the one thing you would like to achieve that day. And, only do that. Eliminate the rest. This exercise has given me so much grief, to the extend that I questioned if I'm just wasting life building Stock Card.
Scene: I'm all caffeinated, ready to take on the challenge. Laptop on, additional coffee at hand, zero-inbox, and ready to go.
me: What's the one thing that matters to me today?
Me: Well... I need to review the analytics reports, and respond to the social media comments and likes, and check in with the developers, and post new social media posts, ...
me: Is that the one thing that matters the most?
Me: ummm... well, I do all these things to acquire more users and increase their retention and they ultimately convert to a paying user.
me: And, how's that going for you so far?
Me: well... we are still in early days. So, I mean... what else I can do?
Conclusion: I have no clue what's the one thing to do everyday that matters ...
