Up before 5:40 alarm or whatever I set. Suitcase full ridiculously. Espresso… may need another shot after this double. OOO message written and posted. Well, used a past version and edited a bit.
Ready for trip, wouldn’t say excited. This escape needs to be an incubation of sorts.. running and writing, learning from colleagues. When back, quota will be attacked as it never has been. Could get a call for a contract, so brining AE laptop in case I need scribble a contract.
Maybe Starbucks on the way out…. Spent a little money yesterday, not much. Keep budget in line over next 6 days, or try.
Maui…. Last time I was there, 1996. This is unbelievable. And astonishing, what I did last year sales-wise. Those two big accounts, one of them being an inbound. Thinking over and over about the rest of the year, my birthday in 18 days.
Look right, on desk, my Sonic badge over the AE Notebook 1… opportunity. No sales goal or slump will sop Mike Madigan. EVER.
6:08, have a banana, take one for road, then leave. Should load things in Ravé then do a quick walk through to see if anything missed. Restroom, then departure.
This is it… the trip that will change everything. Beyond grateful, open to the Newness of the island, and the AE life beyond this morning.
