The last month was a colorful box mixed with a wide range of experiences.

First, I started working as a Group Fitness Trainer again. This does get tricky in addition to my consulting work when it comes to balancing my time. Second, I neglected my business project as I had to prioritize my paid work. Third, a range of private meetings and personal obligations took a toll on my productivity.

Overall the month went ok income-wise, but I see room for improvement for my systems.

Here is why I think so.

Content Production is not that hard, that’s why itโ€™s hard

I have a system in place when it comes to creating my content for remotenactive.com. The short version is:

  • Research: Keywords, Topic
  • Content Creation: Intro, Headlines, Links, Images etc.
  • Check & Publish

For some reason, I often get stuck at step no. 1 and slide into analysis paralysis.

The easy part is just following the system.

The hard part is letting go of wanting to create โ€œthe perfect postโ€ or trying to be too creative. I failed on my content production goal, which is why I am asking myself a new question for this month.

How can I increase my output?

One thing I have noticed is, that the traffic of the website is more or less stable at around 100 visits/month. But, itโ€™s still really dependent on me creating and publishing regularly. Itโ€™s not yet at a point, where I can lean back and watch the traffic grow. This is why I have been thinking about ways to speed up my content creation process.

I am currently looking into programmatic SEO and want to start an experiment in this field.

Itโ€™s a little technical, which is what pulls me in this direction.

Since I have room for improvement when it comes to my technical projects.

Carving out time to code

The other challenge I was and am still facing is, clocking in the coding hours.

As with fitness, I have to train to code and want to treat the learning process the same way.

This is why I want to come up with a system of training certain coding concepts, which are easy but keep my muscle and mind memory going.

Social Media & Personal Brand

I have also gotten back into posting on LinkedIn and want to keep up the rhythm.

Test & Experiment more

I want to increase my experiments and move faster by testing out new things.
