My day started at:
Great! I got around 7 hours of sleep, even though I woke up around midnight for 30 or so minutes.
What I accomplished:
- I emailed 2 prospects to set up a phone call and gain some insight into what they’d look for in service offering like the one I’m creating. Of course, it’s not a lot of people to email, but we all have to start somewhere!
- I made my Certificate of Achievement (from the School of Greatness book) for the date I will quit my job: May 11, 2016.
Woah, I haven’t told anyone that because I don’t want to jinx it. Considering this is semi-anonymous – I think we’re okay. It feels good to put it on paper/the inter-webs.
- Listened to an episode of the Fizzle podcast (episode 155) – where I found my favorite inspirational video of the day.
Quote of the day:
Gary V’s Web 2.0 Talk
Yes, it’s from 2008, but there are so many nuggets of gold in here. How many of you realize that everything you do, every single thing you do, your great great grandkids will be able to watch. Do you want them to watch you procrastinating and doing nothing? Or do you want them to be proud of you.
- I am thankful for a warm place to rest my head at night. It snowed yesterday so everything was cold and wet, which always makes me remember how lucky I am to be able to get out of the elements to rest.
- I am grateful to have the ability to go to work and make money
- I am grateful to be able to be so connected to the world, but also tune everything out when I need to.
None, today is my first rest day, it was kind of strange to be honest. I did run my dog to his favorite “spot” so he could do his business, and then we ran back (it’s about 18 degrees out so I made it into a game to hurry him up, haha!)
What went well:
I made it to work, and made it home. That’s always nice. I’m now on day 4 of keeping up with this whole “journaling” thing so I would call that a win!
What could have gone better:
Dressing more for the freezing cold temperatures. My walk from the train station to work (about 10 minutes) was freezing, especially with the wind coming off the river.
What I learned:
That I have a lot to offer. That sounds really cheesy, but I’m starting to grow each and every day and realize how much I can do, and will do, to better myself consistently.
