Of recent memory. All reports in, as well as 2020 business plan. 11:37, third cup of coffee. Trying to get ahead of schedule on EVERYTHING. Calls lined up for EOD, have to clean the ruin my kids left here in Skyhawk.
4 miles due at some point. Thinking 4, or 3:45, and not on the treadmill. Around here. No, now I’m thinking on tread because I want my distance tracked. Some only care about time, and I do too. But I want the numbers showing distance. I want and need that confirmation.
Trying to be more affable toward self, and more like my friend waking early as she does, having the day set and planned. Her eagerness and hunger is infectious, intoxicating. Putting that in my sakes notes for day, “Find ways of accumulating and aggrandizing enthusiasm and self-love…amplify, intensify, diversity.” Everything to the A story, and I mean EVERYTHING. Running, music, wine, writing, blogging, startup notes and ideas, personal relationships… my kids, their mother, my family.. EVERYTHING.
The inner Mike Madigan is voluble, and he becomes the outer. The visible. The one writing this.
11:48, yogurt and granola and fruit for lunch. Then back at desk. Want five new leads for day. Tomorrow working at HQ then satellite stations, hoping to run in morning. 6 miles due. Figure if I leave here at 5 I can be done just after 6 and get over an hour of writing in. No excess planning, that’s what gets you into trouble. Quiet on the AE front…. Look for businesses, make noise. MUSIC.
Interviewed someone this morning for an Associate AE (AAE) position this morning. Loved his words and approach… the small business reality bridging mentality from there to here in the Enterprise world. So now I find myself prospecting my own ideas, new ones, new attitude and maintaining positive pulse and Beat in everything I do. Wine… the hospitality mind, and my friends with their respective wineries and how they communicate.
Coffee getting colder, and me… more relaxed than I’ve felt on a Monday in…….. Dad texts me, I respond. He asks me if everything is okay after I ask to do a call at EOD. I tell him everything is great, and I laugh knowing that those words are in no way hyperbolic. I see my winery and wine shop. And yes, WINE SHOP. That’s what I’m targeting, not just my own label. Cerulean brightness about me, I feel it. Like I’m outside myself and can see it and smile like a proud parent or sibling.
11:57, state of ‘stay in moment’, don’t get ahead of yourself. Plan what approaches, but don’t lose sight of the table, the chair, these types. Just realized I’m behind a bit on my daily word count average for ’22. Now worries at all, I’ll catch it. Writing sales and my non-sales approach. Storytelling, from my first day at Sonic till now as an AE, and why I’ve stayed, why I haven’t strayed or ventured anywhere else, to any like-body.
