Time to take a little look at my lifestyle before it’s too late

The first thing I want to say is that I’m really pleased. The Russian deal has been sealed. I used the Russian translation service I always use it to get the draft contracts sorted out and translated, and it was sent off for approval.

There was one small change, which I had translated into Russian and added it to the document, using the Russian translator, which has now been sent off, returned and it’s all signed.

So I passed it all onto the company I have been negotiating on the behalf of and they are really pleased, and my commission should be on the way pretty soon.

Which is really great and I love the fact that my little translation service trick works were any language are negotiating, it’s a little edge that I have over other companies who negotiate and it’s cheap as well.

But in other news, I’m now looking at myself and I’m not happy. My lifestyle has not been good over the past few months and I’m putting on weight. On top of that I am also not doing much exercise, and I feel like I am sliding a bit. At my age I really need to keep on top of things, because once your physical health slides as you get older, it can get increasingly difficult to recover it.

So now that I have got some time and the pressure is off financially for a few months, I’m going to focus on my physical health a bit more. I’m going to look at my diet, I’m going to cut out all the rubbish and try to eat more whole grains, fresh fruit, vegetables and meat, and cut out carbohydrates.

I don’t belong to a gym but I think I’m also going to go running a bit, just to do some cardio exercise, and then I’m going to do a few weights at home as well. I think doing this a couple of times a week will help me to keep age at bay and help me to feel a bit better going forward. I suppose you could say this blog post is a beginning the contract with myself.

The Russian contract is almost in the bag

I’m really pleased sitting here writing this today. I haven’t done a lot, but things are moving along nicely with this Russian negotiation I’m doing for a new company.

The translation they sent has come back from the Russian translation service I’m using, and it’s really great news, they have agreed to everything we have discussed and are ready to sign a contract.

So I have just finished getting a contract created and that has been sent off to the Russian translator to get it translated into accurate Russian. Once that is done, I will then send it over to them as a PDF attachment, for them to look at. They will then agreed to it, and also sign it and send a post copy back as well.

Then we are all the done. And that will be my commission in the bag. I get a really good commission to sealing the deal, some really pleased that this Russian contract will be a big one.

I want to go on holiday, we have been on holiday for almost a year because of work and life, so like to go away somewhere really nice and have a really nice holiday with my family. I feel we all deserve it and this extra money will allow us to do that.

I think also might get the house done up a bit, things are getting a bit tatty, and we have put off doing a few things just because we want to get some money in the bank, as we had to invest quite a bit a few years ago. But with the amount of deals I’m closing at the minute it shouldn’t be a problem any longer.

The secret of my success is the fact I’m sealing these foreign deals. Companies don’t want to pay lots of money to hire translators, so by passing the negotiations on to me they believe are passing on that cost, but all I’m doing is using an online translation service, to translate from what ever language to English and then back again. So like an instance of the latest deal, from Russian to English, and then translated from English to Russian again.

Is cheap and accurate, and the companies don’t realise that that’s all I’m doing.
