Earlier today I commented on Kyla’s post regarding change and said that very often I resisted it even as I like to pretend that I’m good at it. Well here is change facing me right in the…well, face. The last five cycles straight I’ve blogged on Sundays and this is my opportunity to change that up.
Tonight I reposted all my items to eBay and to Craigslist (actually double listed, doing some A/B price testing). I also emailed Josh G to see where things stand regarding some consulting work.
Next up: contact Stephen and set a meeting with E&M re: my other idea.
I stayed at work tonight past 6 pm for the first time in a while, but it was because I was asked by one of agencies to stop by an event of theirs in our building that started at 6:30, rather than because I was stuck at my desk and trying to catch up on my work…so I’m ok with that. I got home and made dinner for Naomi and me for the 2nd night in a row.
Today I sent Naomi some ideas for shows I’d consider seeing (opera, symphony & B’way), submitted for a B’way digital lottery for discount tix, as well as discovered BrokeBroadway. I also activated the mobile app BandsinTown, which scanned music on my phone to let me know which of the artists will be in the NY area in the coming months.
Additionally, I reached out to follow up with 3 friends; the 4 of us have tried to get together FOREVER and…thank you, Universe, it looks like Saturday night works – whodathunk? I also invited an old coworker to tomorrow’s guest event, so yay to that.
Lastly, while it isn’t a part of my goals, I started the day with a 4.5 mile run to continue my half-marathon training and continued fundraising as well.
All in all, a pretty good day…some big work things to tackle tomorrow and I’m looking forward.
I’m excited for this cycle, and really liking my goals. At the moment, the first one is feeling more like a have-to than a get-to, which is largely driven by (a) the sunk cost of the inventory I bought earlier this winter which I want to sell, and feels heavy on my mind, and (2) a powerless, victimy sense of ‘I don’t know HOW’ regarding impacting sales and driving interest in my products. Instead I GET to be responsible, and find a fun way to sell these electronics, and to find some way to do quickly!
My second goal is feeling oh-so-me as it’s about being in relationship and having fun…umm, yay!
The last thing hanging over my head is that I started to review a file for Brandy, but haven’t yet completed it, or gotten back to her with comments as I promised to do. This is likely causing her some difficulty with moving forward powerfully on her goals. So, B, here is my word that I’ll have comments for you by Friday.
