A lot of people are going to skip over this series of posts because it doesn’t address 50 Ways To Make 4 Figures Per Day From AdSense – instead, it focuses on a topic that most bloggers ignore. A topic of vital importance. Not only because it affects the very core of your being, but because it actually has a fairly direct correlation with productivity, and to be honest, monetization. So let me suggest to those of you who have made it thus far: pay attention. This might be the most important series of posts that I make at Performancing.
Over the next few weeks I’m going to be doing a series of posts on Blogger Health. Quite simply, it is the most overlooked issue in blogging and needs to be addressed. Money, afterall, is no good if you’re unhappy, sick, depressed or dead.
But enough of the scare tactics. Your health is directly correlated to your blogging success. Over the last year, by paying close attention to my body’s needs, I have been able to increase my overall daily productivity in both quantifiable (measurably better ideas, faster execution, etc.) and qualitative (enjoy my work, less depression, etc.) ways.
As probloggers, we have the advantage of working out of our homes and on flexible hours. We should take advantage of that fact and take time out of the day to fine-tune our bodies. Unfortunately, many full time internet people don’t leave their homes more than once or twice a week. We should aim to change that.
But before I start writing this series, I want to invite Performancing readers to do a gut check. What’s the state of your health? How seriously do you take your health? Do you think about your health on an hourly, daily, monthly, quarterly basis? Or did you wake up one day like me faced with the seeming Catch-22 that not only had you grown a beer gut but that it’s also hard as hell to stop work in the middle of the day to pump some iron?
