Day 42: Refocusing On F2F

I'm really enjoying learning how to code.


But it's taking up too much time. I need to do a better job of focusing on F2F (and other things I'm pursuing) first. The next six months are going to be crucial for the newsletter.


I've basically worked out that unless I can grow it to 500 paid subscribers within six months, it won't make sense for me to move back to California.


That means living at home until it's time to go to HBS.


Definitely not a bad option at all. But I'm 25 - at some point, I will need to leave home and live independently and all that jazz.


So I'll be taking today to catch up on all my F2F emails. Get the pipelines growing again for Startup Spotlight and the Case Studies (especially). For coding, during the week, I plan to only read CS subject materials and not solve problems. I'll leave problem-solving on the weekends, for at least the month of January.
