Every day we begin again… The Journey Day 82.
Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
We have nine more days to complete the first 90-Day Burn initiative. I have created two habits for each goal to practice every day to help me get where I want to go.
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.
- I am a man after God’s own heart.
- I am a world-class athlete.
- I drive a world-class $100M publishing business.
- I help drive the company I work for to $100M.
- emptynestman.com is the marketing machine that drives the $100M publishing company.
- I am the best man, father, and grandfather I can be.
- I am one bad-ass motherfucker.
The LADDER TO THE TOP 7 to complete TODAY. Get out of the comfort zone. GET USED TO DISCOMFORT and learn to thrive there:
#1: Take a few moments and visualize what you will look like when you arrive where you’re going. Today: I am a man after God’s own heart. WIN.
#2: Ironman disciplines for the next 45 days: LOSS.
#3: Research new ways to market our writing projects. WIN.
#4: Every workday, focus on the Top 5 projects or exercises in place to take us to $100M. WIN.
#5: Memorize the short version of the mission statement for emptynestman.com. WIN.
- Market ENXP.
- Document The Journey.
- Help others on their own journey.
- Encourage sobriety, achievement, and healing.
- Fuel conversations.
#6: Over the next 9 days continue to pray for the children and grandchildren. We ended up putting away around $4,400 for the kids and began a fund to liquidate the house note at the end of the year. WIN.
NEWLY FORMED DAILY HABITS TO PRACTICE:
#1: Daily, listen to or read the Bible. Read: John 15-?. LOSS.
#2: Daily, workout twice. LOSS.
#3: Daily, write. Write on the current book. (Word Count: ?). LOSS.
#4: Daily, pray. Pray for the success of the concepts and programs implemented to take the primary company to $100M. Pray for the success of the concepts and programs implemented that affect every one of our primary goals. WIN.
#5: Daily, publish the cultivated articles and continue to cultivate Twitter followers. Remember: This is a social exercise. Engage. Add to the conversation. Create value. Create Value. CREATE VALUE. WIN.
#6: Daily, pray. Pray to God that I will rise up and be the best man, father, and grandfather I can be. Pray for my ongoing growth in these areas of life. Listen to YOU. Listen to my heart. Lean into the Spirit’s leading. WIN.
The LADDER TO THE TOP 7 was NOT completed today. THE DAILY HABITS TO SUCCESS were NOT completed today. Today is a LOSS.
THIS IS THE REALITY: 1,745 days until my journey is complete. Will I make it?
