Reading from one wise man who said:


“Let all your efforts be directed to something, let it keep that end in view. It’s not activity that disturbs people, but false conceptions of things that drive them mad.”
—SENECA, ON TRANQUILITY OF MIND, 12.5

In writing our blogs, unfortunately we have never been focused. Most of the time, we write out topics, or rather headlines and then save us drafts. For example, on this blog here there are currently about 70 drafts pending. Some of the drafts have only the heading, some have one or two paragraphs and an outline.

As I read the above quotation from Seneca on making all efforts directed and therefore focused, I tried to imagine what would have happened if we were focused. We would probably have about 10 well researched articles, whose SEO would be great. We would have already taken measures to reduce the bounce rate. We would have joined great affiliate programs and placed advertisements strategically to make us some money. We would have followed up on Adsense to find out why the advertisements don’t show up…

But all this rambling above on coulda shoulda woulda, we read somewhere it is a clear demonstration of an unfocused mind. And one of the habits of millionaires is being razor focused to the point of obsession. Okay from today, we are changing! First on the list of things to do today is to make a list of the stuff pending and which we need to complete to get back on track to making our affiliate websites a place that actually brings in 💰 money as originally intended.

Are you focused? Do you usually achieve what you set out to do? Let us know how you keep yourself focused in order to achieve the many things that you need to do to monetize your affiliate blog.
