Thursday wasn’t a very productive day.
Once again, I’ve been mainly concerned about buying dips on the Checoin. I won a lot of money with it, but I’m going to talk about it later.
I took care of one order.
Yesterday, I’ve been completely focused on our favorite memecoin. I’ll tell you why.
In fact, since the very beginning, I won OVER 50 TIMES my initial input.
It started with only less than 30€… Now I have 4 digits on my folio and around 1500$ of CHECOIN as we speak.
It’s been a real obsession those past days and I’ve got HUGE difficulties to stay focused properly. I’m working way less than before.
While winning money with crypto-currencies is a good thing, I must at least work a bit every day if I want to expatriate properly.
That day, I also received a rather very urgent order from Jeanma for Checoin Telegram Stickers.
And from now on, you’ll see that I made a LOT of mistakes.
First of all, today was a rather productive day.
I took care of Jeanma’s order… But NOT in the best way possible. Probably the worst in fact.
Spoiler: big story ahead
First, let’s talk back about the moment I received the order.
Jeanma was asking me if I could create some Telegram Stickers. It was yesterday around 7 PM if I remember correctly.
By that time, I was fucking happy because of my gains with the CHECOIN (around x50 time profit at that time, it slightly evolved today).
Basically, I was on fire to take care of the order, since it could partly contribute to preserving the Checoin community’s momentum which would lead to the longevity and an increase of the Checoin propaganda on the internet.
But there was a BIG challenge for me on this order : TIME.
In fact, the order had to be delivered… Today, in the morning.
The deadline was WAY too short compared to the last one, the DBL stickers one.
But I didn’t see the problem from this angle when I saw the opportunity, so I accepted without any question.
I DID 3 MISTAKES HERE
I did 3 mistakes here :
I didn’t think rationally about the deadline. I took it like a challenge, while in a state of real enthusiasm provoked by my gains with the coin. to create stickers that could be used as memes is WAY more difficult than it seems, moreover create stickers in the same way I created the DBL ones 10x faster than in the previous order.
I didn’t ask for details. This one, as a freelancer is general, is a HUGE mistake. If you ever have doubts about what you’re asked to do, and if you need details, ASK THEM directly to the client. When I realised that, it was too late, since Jeanma was probably sleeping.
I felt like I couldn’t say no to Jeanma. As you’ve all seen, our leader is really excited about this coin, since it’s a HUGE opportunity for himself, for his friends, and for his community to become even more powerful. I really should have consider it several minutes longer to realize that I couldn’t make something that good with such a deadline.
Now, up to the next problem.
Since I invested in that coin, my sleep schedule is a real mess. I’m too emotionally invested in that damn coin.
When I realised my mistakes late in the day, I took a rather… really stupid decision when I think back about it.
After taking into consideration the fact that I don’t have a real sleep schedule for now, and in order to take care of the order and deliver it in time, I took the decision of only taking a nap during the night, instead of sleeping several hours.
The mistake I made ? Simple : I simply should’ve gone to bed earlier in the evening and set an alarm really early in the morning.
But I couldn’t do it, since there was another factor to take into account. With several members of the community, we decided to watch by turns the Checoin’s curves in value in order for everyone in the group to buy the dip in time. In this group, I decided several hours earlier to… take the night shift.
One more mistake here : I should’ve said that I couldn’t follow the Checoin this night since I had to take care of Jeanma’s order for the next day.
Okay, now let’s talk about today.
I “woke up” after a really small nap (I wasn’t even sleeping, I’ve got huge difficulties to sleep, even when I have a good sleep schedule) around 3 AM and did my morning ritual.
I then proceeded to take care of Jeanma’s order.
To be fair, I wasn’t effective at all. Using my head to find good concepts for the stickers has been a HUGE pain in the ass, and even worse since I hadn’t really sleep since last day.
I worked, even though I wasn’t focused, for 6 to 7 hours on the order this morning.
But honestly, I wasted 3 good hours. Why ? Well, the first concept I came up with was a rather good illustration, but it didn’t fit with the spirit of the coin and of the community supporting it. Pretty pissed, I decided to take a cold shower and then go back to work with new ideas.
The next ideas I had were good, to be honest. But the stickers I made were either great or not very good. And I fucked up with the last sticker I took care of, a “Buy The Dip” sticker for the Checoin, which was probably the most desired by Jeanma, since it was the first and only particular one he asked me to make.
This sticker was a fucking hell to deal with. I took care of it starting around 11 AM, and since I didn’t sleep, I was like a fucking zombie behind my computer making memes. This sticker made me explode, it pissed me off so much I cursed everything I could at the moment.
In the end, I figured a way to deal with how to make a good sticker about a dip Checoin edition, but it really wasn’t good enough for me when I looked back at it this afternoon.
Jeanma received 4 stickers (I intended to make 8 at first, but my mistake with the sticker that doesn’t fit the spirit of the community took me too much energy and time) in time, at last. I ate and slept a bit, in a real mess of a body : headache, stomachache and many other things I have to remember to not make the same mistakes again.
I couldn’t work afterwards, I was an am right now really tired.
I’ve been a real dumbass today. I dealt with an order in one of the worst ways possible. I messed up.
That’s why I’m taking full responsibility in what happened today. It was entirely my fault.
But being at fault doesn’t mean that I don’t have to move to make things right next time. Mistakes are made to learn from, to be fixed by the responsible and to make the concerned parts evolve in the right way.
So I’m going to bed now.
Tomorrow, I’ll take care of at least one order, make a feedback about Niko’s services (about expatriation) and post my goals for the next months here.
I have to be more focused on my rise in skills and in money with my activity (and not with a certain memecoin) now.
See you tomorrow !
