My day started at: 5:04am
Sleep quality: Surprisingly great, even though I went to bed late
What I accomplished: I finished the Fizzle course about Connecting with Anyone. It was very insightful and gave some great tips on how to stay on top of your game, be unique, and memorable to the people you meet.
Quote of the day: Even though I hear it over and over again, it’s this: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with” – Jim Rohn
- I’m thankful that even though I got less than six hours of sleep, I still felt on top of my game today
- That it wasn’t my building that caught on fire tonight in Philadelphia. My thoughts are with all of the people who lost their possessions, with the firefighters who were rushed to the hospital, and the owners of such a gorgeous building from the 1880s. Life is precious, and I’m glad everyone is okay so far.
Exercise: Today was the first day I was supposed to run, but didn’t. It was 23 degrees outside and my lungs were burning after running home (3 minutes). I decided to stay safe and
What went well: For the first time in a while, I was really feeling work today. I had a good day, it just kind of grooved along, and I didn’t have a single moment where I was unsure of my work (which typically happens every day).
I’m learning to realize that I don’t (and shouldn’t) have the answers to every question I get asked. I can’t explain the sense of power and confidence I had today when I just relayed the questions back to those who asked them to get more clarity. Sounds like an easy thing to do, but I always felt under the hot seat before, like I would look stupid if I didn’t know. Completely the opposite is true and I’m grateful to be learning that.
What could have gone better: Going on a run anyway and not letting an excuse take over. Oh well, I think it’s pretty valid one.
What I learned: I don’t need to have the answers to all of the questions. (See above)
