    Thanks Riaz! Just checked out your blog – some really great content on there. I’m new to blogging so some of your articles (about SEO and increasing traffic for example) are really helpful. You should apply to be a guest contributor to Lifehack too!

    It’s a great article, Emma. I’ve just scheduled it on my Facebook page.

    For me, there’s almost no distinction between weekdays and weekends. Heck, I don’t even remember lots of holidays. I just keep building and working at the things I love, weekend or not. The things that matter to me that is. Like my music and piano. I’d like to get into the habit of waking up earlier though. I still sleep late and get up late. Horrible me.

    Thanks so much Jeremy! I had a look at your blog and you seem like a really motivated, passionate person – I’m not surprised that you don’t take the weekends off! I played piano for years as a kid – tried to get back into it recently but I found it so hard to fit in. I think I was trying to do too much at once. I’m not willing to sacrifice 7 – 8 hours sleep, which seems to be what most successful people end up doing to keep “all the balls in the air” so-to-speak. It’s a work in progress 🙂

    “you seem like a really motivated, passionate person”
    ==> I think you’re right! 😀

    Thanks for checking out my blog. I’ve actually put that on hold ever since I started making piano videos at YouTube since April. So it’s a little dead. But it was going really well while I was at it. And I wrote for Lifehack too! 🙂

    I actually think my 7-8 hours of sleep is quite important… So yeah, I’m not really willing to sacrifice that either. Health is so important. At the very least, we should get about 6.

    P.S. I’ve contacted you, hope you’ve received my email. 🙂

    Sure did! Thanks Jeremy – I’ve made the change. Will check out your piano videos on You Tube! Sounds really cool. Have a great weekend 🙂
