As you might have noticed, at the moment I’m writing this I’m currently living out of my country.
Which means that from time to time I have to do a ’visa run’.
Exit the county, then enter it again to get a new visa so I can stay for longer.
Many people do it, it’s quite normal here.
The idea is to fly out and come back as fast and the cheapest possible.
Being a tourist season at the money, tickets are quite pricey at the moment.
But Damir, found much cheaper option so instead of paying about $1200, we can get away for $420.
Cool or what, that’s what I call savings ?
Plus my friend told me I can stay at his place when I’ll be visiting Ibiza so another $1500 saved.
My $420 deal required to have one stop over – Jakarta.
So Bali – Jakarta- Singapore and from Singapore directly back to Bali.
Everything was fine until we came to the airport and realized I bought tickets to fly out form Balikpapan (north Bali)
Which is all good apart Balikpapan is on another island 500km away.
In my whole excitement I booked ticket form completely wrong place…
And it was very easy to make that mistake – I was blinded by the light of having cheaper flights so much that I didn’t even notice Bali is not Balikpapan.
Things are a bit weird here with the names and all..
Anyways, 3h later I had to spend another $1000 to get to Singapore – one way.
Lucky I had tickets to get back already..
I missed the detail, very small on the screen, but made a big hole in my bank account.
Here is the thing – even though I avoid perfection and all the ‘details’ I still stand that the right details should be double checked.
In my case it would mean – double check all the destinations (very important detail)
What am I going to wear, what will I eat and how will I spend my time (not important detail)
In your case – maybe checking that your payment processor is actually connected to your bank account would be an important detail.
How it looks, having perfect logo, wording, or whatever – not important detail.
Worry about the things that really matter, unless you want to have a big hole in your back account.
All the detailing stuff only makes you procrastinate and postpone your marketing campaigns …
While you could have been making $$ already.
The magic Calendar program has lots of details in it, is it perfect? No!
Does it work? Yes!
