Todd is an awesome writer who doesn’t have a scheme or hidden agenda to sell you something.
He doesn’t write what’s trendy at the moment like meditation or morning routines or productivity, he just writes what’s on his mind.
Lately, I’ve noticed I’ve been focusing more on the content I put out in terms of achieving the best ROI possible.
Will this get me closer to another lead? Am I spending my time wisely? Is this productive?
My business, and not my heart, has become the main source of my inspiration.
I miss just writing for me.
And so here I am, spilling out my thoughts.
I’m getting sick but having trouble making myself rest.
As much as I love the hustle mentality and hard-working mentality of taking your destiny in your own hands and running with it, I realize I’ve had to take more and more care of my mind and body to ensure I can keep hustling.
I have a toddler who’s in daycare which means he brings home mutated viruses and germs that attacked my immune system. So for the past two years around this time I develop a nasty cold.
Even though I know my body needs rest and heal, I’m having trouble turning off and turning away from all of the responsibilities I put on myself.
So tonight (and I’m literally finishing this up in bed) I'm going to bed early to rest up and ensure I can keep working hard towards my goals.
Our number one tool is our body and mind make sure they are healthy and primed to keep us going.
I am both excited and nervous for my future.
I’m excited for the possibilities of what the next few years will bring for myself and for my family.
I’m also nervous that they may fall through and not work out as planned.
But looking back in my life everything it has always been just… normal.
Everything that I think will be exciting probably won’t seem like it.
And everything that I think will be scary probably won’t be.
The future will become the new normal. I’ll adapt. What am I so excited/worried about?
I used to be the hyper kid.
My mom told me that between me and my sister I was definitely more hyper of the two. Which is weird because I’m definitely the more calmer one now that we’re older.
I may not express my hyperness in a physical manner nowadays, internally I’m always jumping from one challenge to the next always trying to find ways to not become bored with what I’m working on.
I’ve had to learn and teach myself that to see results over the course of this life, I need to be more patient with and stick to what I set out to accomplish. Instead of jumping ship for something newer and better, I need to see things through.
Even now 27 years later, I’m still learning to slow down.
By the way, the majority of this post was written by me dictating to my phone. It was an efficient way to get my thoughts down. I might have to try it more often. It did a pretty good job by the way too.
