Monday, but more than a Monday for some reason. Woke well before 8 and here I am in office, at desk. Tonight, cleaning and throwing shit away… MASSIVE declutter.
No Café Noto this morning. Tempted, but not doing it. Budget last night teaching me that there is a significant amount of cash I could be saving. So, that’s what I’m doing. Coffee and espresso on desk, ready. READY.
Fruit for lunch… planning meals more. Running at EOD.
Started a new AE diary on AE laptop. I’m going to log every step and piece of this quota fight, even though I’m not really fighting anymore. Accepting it for what it is, and learning from everything. Have a call scheduled at 10, and a prospect I need to follow up with concerning pricing. Pricing on resold AT&T fiber, so I don’t see it going anywhere, but it’s worth a try…
Thinking about my vineyard walk yesterday, what I said on camera about making yourself happy and being a fan of yourself, being your best friend… truth, but something I need do more of. Especially when it comes to being an AE, writing, and other fields.
8:48, tempted to clean the kitchen but I’ll save that for after my run. Speed work today on tread, calendared. Will try and do an hour, should be able to. Run last week not hurting, felt like I was back in that running grove or habit but I have a ways before I am as you might guess.
Thinking about dropping any winery involvement… tasting room or otherwise. Build MY brand first…. Yesterday at MS was thinking a lot about life’s work and what I want to be known for now and remembered as…. You could say a grim inner-conversation but no, it’s one that we all need to have at some point. I’m 43, why not now be the ‘point’. Why not now consolidate… why not now completely STOP dreaming and just like Kerri says manifest. Force fruition, as I say.
Pictures of the vineyard, then five I’d take right where I’m standing in the winery’s kitchen…. There’s a story in wine and I’m not stopping in my love for wine, just winery involvement. Eight hours is A LOT of time to not be writing on a Sunday, or running, or blogging, or building a site.
List of to-do’s for day…. The landing page for AE Designed. Still haven’t done that. Goddmanit—
OKAY… AE time. First thing, clean and restart computer. Focus on build network…. Stick to lawyer and law firm vertical. Had a couple ideas thrown at me last week, need to write them down. Networking possibilities or conversations…. See where they go. One of them, an even my buddy Davin, an attorney, told me about.
8:59, emailed Davin back asking if it’d be odd if I went to that event by myself, not being a lawyer. May just go anyway. Why not. What’s the worst that could happen?
Restarting AE laptop. No making list of aims for day, but rather what I’ve done, what’s been forced to fruition or manifested. How do I see myself… what do I want to be, like RIGHT NOW.
