Shower, little meditation.
Waiting for what seems like forever for the Keurig to heat up and letting me make this coffee. Not ready for AE story, not yet. Couple client issues and services matters to address, but other than that…. Week should be slow, and short. Don’t think we’re on-duty Friday, and pretty sure we’ll be given log-off early Thursday. Who knows. Not thinking about it even though I very much am.
Guy with unpaid bill pushing back start date, have to call him. Annnnnnnnnd,….. can’t remember what else.
16-31 project idea and writings, where do I go and start this morning. Yesterday slow in TR and didn’t get to post everything I wrote, oh well, so today I’m looking to log and post everything that swims though my head.
Like…. A fish tank in the new house. Do I want one? No. Sounded fun and cool and good for kids at first but guess who’s going to clean it. Yeah no thanks. No pets, maybe a few plants.
Just realizing I didn’t spend anything yesterday. Huh…. Trying the same today. Yogurt and granola, a life saver. Making coffee at home and not giving devilish Starbucks my bucks. Have to run today at some point, thinking an afterwork EOD run. Yes.
Storage unit, all that mess and piling in there. Not looking forward to addressing that but some part of me is – getting everything into the new house, if I get it…. Then I start thinking about that, stressing a bit, nerves landing and wrapping themselves around me. Email last night to agent making it real…. Nerves still there. Why. Don’t listen to them, I tell myself. Distract yourself.
Dad telling me someone may have tried to open the side gate. “What the …. Is going on in this neighborhood?” I ask myself then voice aloud. First the POS Prius, then this, then the story of one of the nearby homeowners finding someone in their car at night…. Do I need to get a gun when I get this new house? No… absolutely not. They make me uncomfortable and the thought of using one…. NO.
Think of something else… Migrating one AE story to another… how do I do that? Already doing it, I realize. Keep things simple, clean…. Emailed Mark, Enterprise Sales Director. OH…. Need to message Sales Ops Manager Allison, see if that big contract gets me into President’s Club, if I’m going to Maui… Oh my god…. Sent her an email— or message, over Teams.
Receipts to shred, file things away in little box. Loving this Nook office. Need something similar in the Save Me Wine House…. Should the office be its own room? No…. Jack and Emmie can’t share a room, they’d destroy each other. So then Henry and Emmie sharing a room? Should Henry stay in my room? Ugh… too early for this level of thought. Either way there’ll be a grievance I’m sure, for one or both or all three of them.
Just crept into the 9 o’clock hour, messaged another AE, now what.
Looking for Silicon Valley events… rambled way too long in this entry. Stopping for a second… quick bathroom break, more coffee… further simplification in terms of conversation and approach, whatever can be quantified.
Then I start thinking about a home office, and a part of this house which isn’t that big of course and how I’d have an “office”. Notice the nerves again, then think, “No office.” The house itself is THE office. Stop thinking about it so much, I write in AE Notebook 1.
Find one event, then another…. One idea, then another. Hashtags, notes, then ideas I don’t write anywhere just to see if they stay.
Quiet on messenger channels. Forgot I have a call at 10, mild opportunity. Even if the guy wants to sign I’m going to try and sandbag it till January. Still a ways away but we’ll see. That time before a call where you just watch the clock, and watch some more.
