The Journey Day 32 01.12.20

Day 32. Day 29 of #75HARD. And so we begin week 5, team. It’s supposed to be 68 degrees and sunny this afternoon. Not bad for January 12… just sayin’…

GRATITUDE.
“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.”
– Buddha

NUGGETS. 
Holding nothing back means holding the intention to be an open vessel, in a daily way.

I will hold nothing back in my effort to live. I will not hesitate to be.

When feeling urgent, you must slow down.

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
I’m fucking tired. But fucking tired 29 days into this mental toughness test, doesn’t mean what it used to be. Fucking tired used to mean I’d go get a drink (or 12) and veg for the day on the couch in front of the television. Now fucking tired means I’ll do another set, I’ll do another rep, I’ll bike for another 5 minutes, I’ll read a few more pages, I’ll write a few more paragraphs. In other words, FUCK fucking tired.

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.

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

The LADDER TO THE TOP 7 to complete TODAY. Get out of the comfort zone: 

  1. Continue listening to Psalms on the morning bike ride. Pick up at Psalm 128. Made it to Proverbs 29. Will pick up there in the morning. WIN.
  2. Work my ass off with both the AM and the PM workout. WIN.

    The infrastructure and notes are in place to write the next 10 serials in the EAT. DRINK. F*CK. Series. That will be my focus until it’s done–about 50K words.
