Ubermensch Day #56: Hustle Hard
Meditate like a monk: meditated for 10 minutes. (total accumulated time: 153 minutes) Meditation teaches patience - but not the ordinary kind. It's the patience of the soul and mind. Practically speaking, this means being calm when dealing with an obnoxious little kid who keeps on YELLING.
Exercise like a War God: Marched to the gym today in surprisingly warm, sunny weather. It's not dark and gloomy here in Canada land. Did squats, leg calves and bench like a boss. I don't want to squat 300 lbs anymore, what if I injure my spine and become cripple? I messed up my back really bad from a previous injury, and from dead lifts 6 months ago. I'm going to switch from a strength routine to a body building routine.
Read a fascinating book: Read 28 pages of Empire State of Mind:How Jay-Z Went from Street Corner to Corner Office by Zack Greenburg. (Progress: 28/196 - Physical hardcover page count: 240). He grew up in the ghetto, and how he's worth half a billion dollars from his business ventures. I want to finish 1 book per week. To do this, I simply: (total page count / 7). It looks like I need to read 28 pages per day to accomplish this.
Watch something inspiration: Watched 2 episodes of Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha (Progress: 3/25). This anime is fast pace, action anime with a supernatural theme. A TALKING DOG. WHAT THE HECK. Exciting.
Learn an awesome foreign language: Learned Korean for 30 minutes (Total accumulated time starting at Dec 01 2011: 562 minutes).

Word of the day: efficacy / ef-i-kuh-see / ef·fi·ca·cy [ef-i-kuh-see] Show IPA noun, plural -cies. capacity for producing a desired result or effect; / example: efficacy of daily habits
Build passive income streams (Yeah!)
45 minutes site construction: Wrote a 450 word article for my website, format it, insert links, and inter-link websites, inserted URLs presell the affiliate product. I use SEMrush.com to reverse engineer my competitor's keyword, heh heh heh.
45 minutes SEO: Wrote 150 words to get 1 backlink, using BuildMyRank.com. I cannot write another 150 words, my brain is fried from writing. Got 5 potential backlinks using ActuallyRank.com, wrote comments on high PR, index blogs. Goal right now is to build all the backlinks and rank for "ZXY review" keyword.
45 minutes maintaince / planning: Add call to action on the home page to an affiliate offer; remove footer to reduce footprint (Google, you dun knoe me!); fix some "broken" links.
45 minutes intelligence research / analysis: The CPA campaign makes me $8 to $10 per day ($200-$250 per month - $13, 000 USD total in the past couple years), I forgot that if I want to make it $20, $50, or $100 per day campaign, I just need to scale it. By that, I mean building an authority site, getting more traffic, thus more conversion. I already have a conversion tunnel in place, I just need more traffic. This is common sense, yet I completely forgot about this! I already have an aged domain for this, I just need to build it into and authority website ... which I'll do next Monday [Dec 19 2011]
Business thoughts #1: I'll be working a solid 3 hours per day, 7 days a week. This shouldn't lead to burn out, since it's a mere 3 hours a day, or 21 hours per week.
Business thoughts #2: The most important aspect is highly focus work: constructing/expanding the websites. The maintaince aspect will upkeep the website, and the intelligent research / analysis will incrementally improve the business. There should be no room for wasting time.
Business thought #3: Things are beginning to piece together; a webpage isn't merely just a page with content. A web page is a place to insert 3 call to action promoting the affiliate product OR getting them to join my mailing list ... where I continue to sell them the affiliate program. However, it's a fine balancing act - the article has to provide value to the visitor, the product has to provide value to the visitor, and I have to integrate the 3 calls to action in a non-annoying, non-obonoxious way.
