When Hard Work Pays Off…

If you’re someone who is driven by instant gratification, entrepreneurship might not be the best career path for you. Sometimes it takes countless hours with seemingly no end in sight to accomplish major tasks that will propel your business into the next level.

As long as you’re moving forward, there is a reward waiting for you!

Hand write a list of your goals and take a big fat marker and cross each one off when you’ve accomplished a goal (it really is more satisfying than it sounds).

If you’ve tried keeping different to-do lists six ways from Sunday, then we have another idea for you… Keep a “DONE” list!

You know what needs to get done. Instead of keep a list of unfinished items that looms over you on a daily basis, write down what you accomplished each day. Just make sure “Get 3 Stars on Angry Birds” isn’t a reoccurring theme. Look back at that list as a benchmark of how productive you are and to be proud of the work you have done.

Make it a game to see how many items you can get done each day.

Today we are reaching a milestone and moving an item from To-Do to DONE!

For the past 11 months (maybe longer, we’ve lost count) we’ve been working hard at formatting, promoting, and publishing a piece of scientific research that has been out of print for quite some time. We wanted to make sure that this book is being published, unabridged, and as close to the original work as possible for the first time in 25 years.

We’re proud to officially announce today (May 15, 2014) is the launch day for “Programming and Metaprogramming in the Human Biocomputer” by Dr. John C. Lilly.

Programming and MetaprogrammingIt feels good to bring back this piece of work that inspired continued research of float tanks (our primary industry and money maker). If would mean a lot to us if you picked up a copy today. We lowered the price to as low as Amazon would allow us to go and still qualify for the best seller list.

That’s right, we’re trying to make this book a best seller.

While launching this book allows us the right to check this task off of our to-do list, it would feel amazing to put “Best Seller” on our DONE List. To reach that, we need about 1,000 books sold on May 15th.

We’ll share your answers in a future blog post.

That’s all for now, we have some more book promoting to do…

Oh… Don’t forget to…


…but only if you can. 🙂

At the very least, please share this post with as many people as you can.
