Sep 17 – Sep 23 (80w, 68d)

Sep 18, 2018

Week Objective Score: 80% (4/5) (Δ +40% from 40%)
Day Objective Score: 68% (17/25) (Δ +1% from 67%)

Intent: A reminder to myself that I can still do things even if they’re not on the Agenda. The Agenda simply states core priorities for that day.

I am taking a lighter approach to the “A5 Contract” and simply not touching/using my main computer at all until A5 is complete, unless I need it for CPU intensive tasks (such as video editing, graphic design, etc). I’ve realized that my day goes to shit, 90% of the time, whenever I use my computer (and to a much lesser extent, my laptop and/or phone) in the first hour(s) of the day.

I’m also putting more priority on getting up around 8:00 am every single day. Although the time may change, I’m aiming for consistency as much as possible – as per lesson taken from 12 Rules for Life. Besides that, my priorities are progressing through programsgetting out of the house (breaking the pattern/cycle, getting out of my environment), revisiting and processing the LA experience, and moving my “minimalism” and decluttering intent towards my digital assets.

I need to start moving forward with “getting clients” and “finding dance students” which requires me to a) develop skills (which is sometimes a form of procrastination) and b) get my offering put together to c) start asking for/offering work.

Recap: This week was a great week, although it felt like there were more times than I’d like that were ‘sub-par.’ But technically and statistically, it was about on-par or slightly above-par than last week. The biggest highlight was finally “approaching the danger,” which should show up on the blog soon enough – but essentially it was identifying that my brain has associated finding clients and building a business as a “dangerous thing” and thus oriented my nervous system to avoid it as much as possible. I worked on rewiring my brain and will continue to do so as I move forward into the next week.

There were a couple of other highlights throughout the week that weren’t necessarily on the “agenda” below. Going out to a bar to dance. Publishing October Westie Nights. Spending less time on the main computer. Large amount of videos caught up for the daily vids; just a few days behind now, compared to almost 2 weeks.

Answering My Top Top Questions of 2022

12 months ago I came up with the “top questions” that guide my life. This time I’m reflecting on those questions after living with them for a year.
