Choose Momentum Over Outcome (When You’re Stuck)

When I’m not going anywhere, I want to choose “momentum” over the outcome by utilizing MINIMUM quotas and tiny tweaks.

But as GaryVee shares, it might not actually be as bad, not as scary as you might think to go all in.

Shorten the Gap

Whether it’s something big or something silly, each time I do something and #EmbraceTheWeird in any way, the gap between “I have this idea” and “f*ck it” gets shorter and the severity of doing that thing gets less intense.

Daily Kylego Effects – 10 Days In

Doing this Kylego exercise every day has been incredibly beneficial. A part of me actually tries to convince myself NOT to do it, because doing it raises my awareness of what I’m actually capable of. And if I don’t do it, then I don’t have to face the music.

To Find Silence, Invite It In

My default should be all-devices-offline. My phone, computer, laptop, music, fan … all of it. None of it should be operating unless I have a specific thing I need to accomplish.

Look at the Excitement

Just like that, a hundred things start popping up that I COULD do, that would be MORE productive or effective. It was hard to stay in my meditation much longer, because this new sensation and all these ideas pulled me to get up and do something.

Naive and chill for 30 days seems to be working out a lot better than worrying about all this other shit I “should” be doing and giving myself a fucking hard time about it. I’m already more focused, happier, more relaxed, and more productive than I have been in months.

e-clutter: Becoming Digitally Minimalist

It was getting overwhelming. I was spending all my time “collecting” all of those things and not really doing anything with them! When there’s less clutter in my life, those things that are most important stand out like a lighthouse peeking through the clouds.

Embrace the Flight: Glimmering Butterfly Project

Through a combination of frustration, discovering a “gap” between who I am and who I could be, and the catalytic combination of a handful of sources, I’ve felt inspired to create the Glimmering Butterfly Project: a personal 30 day quest and challenge for me to step into the guidance of my heart.
