    You are already improved as a person because you bought a Christmas Gift to your mom., in the business perspective you are doing the right thing because you spend a total of 6 and half hours i think its great, keep it up..

    Stop saying how your day went, which is of absolutely no interest to others, and just get on with it instead of wasting time asking daft questions on here. Do you really think people want to know if you went to a party or bought your mom a present?

    I think you need to add blog commenting on high traffic sites. Secondly consider guest posting as well. These two can ensure that you get traffic even for a new blog.

    To improve...

    1. Don't go to the party
    2. You spent a couple hours too much asking questions on the forums

    As great and valuable as these forums are (they really are)...a majority of your day needs to be getting down and dirty and grinding away in the field.

    My two cents..

    Either way, VERY VERY glad you are analyzing your productivity and looking to be more efficient and effective. Good on you!

    I spend 1-2 hours on my Google Adwords campaigns and then rest of the day I am quite free and do what ever I want.

    Sort of along the same lines as what Kenster was saying, I would try to work on reducing the time you spend learning, and increasing the time you spend doing.

    You spent a couple of hours practicing copywriting, which is, in my opinion, the most important part of having an online business. One cool way of getting work on your copywriting is to buy a PLR product, then spend time writing your own sales page for the product. Then not only have you spent some time practicing your copywriting, but now you also have a product for sale that can make you money.

    Since you were going to spend the time practicing anyway, it is a low risk way to get a product for sale.

    Learning is important, but doing is how you become an expert. I would try to set a goal of having a 2 to 1 ratio of doing/learning. Then as you get comfortable with that keep trying to increase the ratio to 3 to 1, 4 to 1, etc.

    Hope that helps. Good luck!

    First off great job for posting about this meaning you are trying to be more productive.

    But ya, the party was not necessary considering it was Tuesday yesterday, seems like a little too long on the landing page but if it's one of your first I can understand. If you need help writing headlines you could use this free headline generator.

    And you should only post questions on here that are really meaningful like this one : - )

    Congratulations on increasing your productivity! If you keep making small adjustments like this you are well on your way to achieving your goals.

    I think the fact you managed to spend more than a few hours doing something productive is a good sign.

    There are many people around here including me who end up procrastinating and not getting anything done some days/most days.

    You're spending too much time dilly dallying and consuming rather than producing. Here, read this: HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR DAYS.

    The fact that you're taking time to analyze your productivity and looking for ways to improve it is awesome.
    I have to agree with what a couple of people have already said. You should try to do more than learn. That's the best way to get better fast. Reading and asking questions can only take you so far. But getting that experience under your belt will give you actual results to analyze and improve on. You can practice flapping your wings until it's perfect, but you won't actually fly until you leap
