What is this challenge?
Master My Websites is a challenge set myself to finish all my websites in 7 days. I would like to at least complete a website per day but overall have all websites finished (ready for user feedback) in 7 days. This challenge starts today and finishes on February 16, 2015.
Why do this challenge?
I have procrastinated for far too long with these projects. Its time to have accountability and focus for a change. This is one of my changes in 2015.
How will I measure my progress?
My progress meter will contain a set of bars with web design tasks that will launch my websites. I can use Gantt management software to visually see the progression.
I can allocate about 5-6 hours a weekday to the challenge. At work, a total of 2-3 hours if not overly busy; at home, 3 hours if my procrastination doesn’t set in. I don’t want to pull overnights. On weekends I can pull 8+ hours.
Maybe I’ll split the tasks up with content vs visuals. I can get more done if i have full concentrate on weekends then during the week when it comes to designing. I can write articles up, no problems.
What do I hope to accomplish with this challenge?
I hope I can finally finish what I started. I have big plans for my websites, my brands and getting the websites finished is just the first step. But that’s just the surface. Finishing up this project, which has been in effect since 2011, will mean that I have finally faced down the Assassin that plagues my soul and my mind for years. It will mean I have battled and conquered my depression, my compulsive disorder, my anxiety, and fear of success. It would be a tremendous feat in my life. This is why I have to document my feelings during the challenge. Maybe even make a video on it.
Am I ready?
No. I am not. However I’m tired of not being ready.
