The Journey Day 112 04.01.20

Day 4 of the second #90DB.

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head at the start of the day: This format seems to be working for me. The coronavirus hasn’t hit me personally yet. Work continues because we’re in the critical infrastructure industry. Business as usual. That said, I think I can start getting comfortable and expounding more on what I’m going through during this #90DB. At least that’s the goal…

A quick-hitter from Andy Frisella’s blog:

On personal growth and success…

It’s never easy.

It’s slow to show any progress.

It’s frustrating and unrewarding at times.

It’s natural to want to quit & start over.

But IF you stick it out…it’s sooooo worth it.

MY LIFE BHAGs

  1. I am a man after God’s own heart.
  2. I am a world-class athlete.

THE WRAP-UP:

I’m feeling better about this format. It’s lean. It’s clean. I think I can live with this. We’ve made some progress the last couple of days, although it royally sucked that I slept in this morning and missed the AM workout and the Twitter Show. I was up last night talking/listening to a friend. It was good stuff. I’m still new to this friend thing, so I know I’ve got some work to do. I need to build friendships with appropriate borders. It’s a work in progress.
