Day 66: Returning Sunday
Sunday afternoon my “Vacation” officially ends. I’m not sure exactly what time I go off vacation mode due to unclear instructions from Empire Avenue, but I’ll start trying to push account activity beginning tomorrow morning.
Lessons Learned: When I began playing Empire Avenue I found myself swept away, like in a race. Seemingly every day I found more things that needed my attention and action, and by the time I pushed the “Vacation” button, EA activity was becoming unmanageable for me.
My methods for handling EA engagement had been overrun, but worse, EA activity was draining time from the content I want to create. And basically, that content is what drives my network activity. So, it was a downward spiral.
During the past week I’ve reassessed my involvement in all my projects and activities. The reassessment was a good exercise and helped me weed out projects and activities that are overreaches. I even put my novel on hold till 2013, put I’ll probably fire off a related story from time to time.
Reprogramming: I’ve made adjustments to enable me to continue including Empire Avenue in my daily activities. Here’s what I’ve come up with for now:
- Limiting my investing to four specific days of the week.
- Increasing content delivery to increase network activity.
- Add more inter-connectivity between networks.
- Reduce daily Missions by half, if possible.
- And soon, another connection I’m still fiddling with.
Expected Outcome: Some of the changes I’ve making should begin generating more network activity. However, reducing the number of Missions I perform will take some tweaking to find a good balance; so, this is a little but of an unknown.
I noticed that when (e)LAURIED returned from her vacation (although I’m not sure she used an EA Vacation) there was a brief dip while she began regenerating her network activity and earnings, so I’m assume my shares & dividends will dip briefly. However, my immediate goal is to generate activity & earnings to enable dividends in excess of 1.20 Eaves.
Thank You: I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this “Vacation” but I was worried that it could be a real setback to the progress of my shares. So, thank you to shareholders who have not sold. Thank you to the shareholders and friends who’ve given me advice, and special thanks to Gregory Jackson who introduced me to some simplified investing techniques.
