Why I am tired of reading post with ”10 something to get more something” titles

6. January 2014 20:42 by Anders Thue Pedersen | 0 Comments

Honestly, I love those posts, but often the lead to some more items on my to-do list, and it has now gotten so long I cannot manage it any more.

The problem with a to-do list for me is that most of the items on it no longer has my interest; they start to feel like work instead of fun. I have to be honest and let you know that I have never had a normal job so I have no idea how that feels. What I do know is when there are too many task in a project that are trivial or is something I have no interest in, I slowly stop working on that project.

So how do I keep my inspiration, productivity and traction? I need to prune my to-do list, to get it smaller and more interesting so I do not slip and lose my traction.

10 more ideas to 10x my business, steal them if you like them!

  1. Create service version that monitors a folder and adds watermarks automatically
  2. Create DLL for integration into forums/websites/etc
  3. Translate website to multiple languages
  4. Split test examples on front page
  5. Video watermarker
  6. Video watermarker as a service
  7. Image resize & rotate as a service
  8. Finish TSR Deployment tool and release it
  9. Finish TSR Builder and release it
  10. Finish TSR USB Password manager and..... ;)

Last week

As promised I did next to nothing, even though my near death experience caused by slow sales was really hard to tackle.

But I think I figured out how to handle it at the end of the week.

This week

I will continue to email people and ask them about why they buy TSR watermarker, and perhaps start working on my copy...

Status on my 1000% revenue growth - I'm rising again, at 315% so I guess the Christmas was the culprit.
