What I’m doing now

Inspired by Derek Sivers and his Now page and subsequent website, this is what I’m currently doing.

Last updated: Monday 5th February 2018

Where I am:

Kuching, Borneo. I’m using Kuching as my base in Asia for now.

Where was I:

Dharamshala and Mcleod Gunj. In Northern India for a wedding and chill out (turned out to be chilled, but in a freezing way)

Where I’m going next:

Cape Town. Time to get dusty at AfrikaBurn.

What am I working on:

Web development – For the last year or so I’ve been doing more and more web development. The difference in my well-being between being client-facing and now code-facing is huge and I love it. Every line of a code is a problem to solve, and it ticks my mental boxes. Glad to be doing it. Working on my own projects, friends projects, and a couple of agency projects.

New Product – Working on a new SaaS product, hopefully linking it in with my development work to be able to create at least the first version myself. Thinking of doing an accelerator with this one, possibly MaGIC.

Ecommerce and Affiliate – Still running my ecommerce and affiliate businesses, but they bore me, and I spend as little time as possible on them.

NSB – My internet radio station and forum started almost 20 years ago, I’ve barely touched them in 10 years, so redesigning and relaunching them.

What I’ve stopped working on:

Live Work Fit – My retreat brand, was a lot of hard work, distracted me from my other goals, and didn’t align itself with my travel plans for 2018.

Email Magnet SaaS – Found a similar company to me doing what I was going to do and they are struggling to get revenue. Decided the idea wasn’t as unique and good as it was as the target market was too cheap.

Biggest challenges now:

Health and fitness. I am not moving enough and my will power seems weak around carb-heavy food. Everything is in place to get healthier except my motivation and will power so working on that.

FOMO investments. Don’t have time enough to watch alts and tokens and crypto, doing what I can but never feel like its enough.

Books:

The Water Rat of Wan Chai – Ian Hamilton
Only When I Laugh – Paul Merton
Personal – Lee Child
Absolute Pandemonium – Brian Blessed
All out War – Tim Shipman

Watching:

Person of Interest
MasterChef (the only “TV” I watch)
