I went into this challenge knowing that there would be many obstacles on the path to achieving my goal. Here are the 3 biggest challenges I'm currently facing:
1. eHow is not publishing my articles...
I submitted articles on 2/6, 2/8, & 2/10 and none of them have been published by eHow. My first 5 articles were on hold for approx 12-18 hours before they were published. This even seemed strange to me because when I first started writing for eHow last year this process took less than 10 minutes.
SOLUTION: Keep writing articles, but save them in google Docs and wait for the 3 articles on hold to publish before I submit anymore.
2. Writing and my family...
I woke up early on Valentines Day to write an article before everyone woke-up. Well my alarm also woke-up my 4 & 6 year old princesses. They have been begging to get out of bed, but I'm trying to squeeze in a few more minutes to complete this morning's article. In addition, I think my wife is feeling a little neglected because every night after the kids go to bed I'm in front on the computer writing my next article.
SOLUTION: Keep waking up early (and quietly) to write so that I can spend time with the family later on in the day.
3. I'm running a little behind...
My writing pace is running a little behind what it needs to be to complete 100 articles in 100 days. I've skipped writing on days where either I was exhausted or I had higher priority issues to address. As of today, I'm running behind by 2 articles.
SOLUTION: When time permits, write more than one article a day. Once I've caught up, then I should bank some articles so that if I skip days in the future I will not run behind.
Even though I'm facing many obstacles I need to stay committed to solving them so that in the end I will achieve my goal. Conceptually this is easy... let's see if I can do it. I appreciate your support!
