The Journey Day 18 12.29.19

Week three of 75Hard begins. It’s rainy and nasty outside. I wouldn’t want it any other way at this point. Let’s go make something happen.

GRATITUDE.
The depth of my happiness is directly proportionate with the depth of my gratitude.

NUGGETS. 
To achieve the impossible you have to see the invisible.

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:

“Fools and fanatics are certain; the wise are full of doubt.”

SELF-SUGGESTION: THIS IS WHERE I’M GOING. WHERE IS THE PROOF OF PROGRESS TOWARD THAT GOAL TODAY? This is where the rubber hits the road, team. This is the good stuff. These are the end goals. This is what it’s all about.

  3. I drive a world-class $100M publishing business.
  4. I help drive the company I work for to $100M. 
  5. emptynestman.com is the marketing machine that drives the $100M publishing company. 
  6. I am the best man, father, and grandfather I can be.
  7. I am one bad-ass motherfucker.
