I am using this day to catch up on my backlog of managerial tasks. HELP!! I am wearing so many hats right now I don’t take them off anymore, I just stack them so I don’t have to remind anyone of what it is I actually do. Needing a change of scenery, I decided to work out of Cafe + Velo. It’s definitely a place I can focus on my tasks while longing to do something more exciting…it’s still pretty early.
Desperately craving human interaction at the moment. Today’s focus is happiness. Enjoyment of the space I am occupying and the activities I am doing. I’ve never held a job I actually wanted until now. I wake up bright and early for my 8am meetings because I have passion and a purpose, both were seriously lacking in my previous employment endeavors. I’m moving with an end game and I couldn’t be happier. The days are faster and longer at the same time. Why did it take me so long to pursue being my own boss? Fear. I read somewhere that on the other side of fear is everything I ever wanted…imagine that.
Dinner. Papi’s Cuban. The mojitos alone make it worth it.
Day 6 was pretty low key. Again my focuses were power, success and opulence. It blows my mind that I am actually creating an app. My app is my contribution to the project management world. It is a tried and true method of management that has helped me tremendously in my 13 year career as a project manager and a business analyst. PLUS (which is my app name) is not just functions that project managers and teams perform routinely.
I attended a Product Management workshop at General Assembly in PCM or Ponce City Market for those not in the know. I wanted to verify if I was on track with my project since it is a product but I am not a “product manager” and turns out I am. I am willing it into fruition.
Atlanta United at the Mercedes Benz stadium and there are no words to describe the grandeur so my phone put together a movie. This day was so great I decided to let it speak for itself. Also, chili and onion rings are so clutch!
This day is going by so fast. I’ve already accomplished so much today. Updated my white board with today’s focuses. Washed my bed linens. Never knew how relaxing that could be. The heat from the dryers on my back. Have you ever pressed against a dryer? The heat is so soothing. Realized that living with myself has it’s benefits. I do laundry. I get my meals cooked sometimes. I play music as loud as I want. I watch what I please. The only noises I hear are the ones I allow in my space.
I was complimented at the laundry. He said I was beautiful. I gracefully said thank you. Project great energy and push through and you will receive the same in return. I’ve dropped a couple pounds. This is symbolic of not only needing to do laundry more but washing away the negativity and bad thoughts that easily overshadow a great situation.
The day went so fast. I was calm and I listened. I gained another customer today for PLUS. I realized how simplifing makes a lot of difference.
Positivity is winning. I’ve been practicing my PLUS speech. It needs some work. I have a long way to go but it’s coming together. If anyone wants to hear it let me know.
Everyday is more of the same which is the point. How else am I going to perfect? They say practice makes everything perfect and I want to see how far it takes me.
Wiped down the white board to start a new day. Focus items: power, success and opulence. PLUS. Dumped my brain, opened my mouth and talked about PLUS and described it’s features. Took a drive through Atlanta and realized this is a whole ass city. The city’s most prized possession, a parking space.
Life is good.
I won Rodney Carrington tickets! Day 1 of positivity-thon and I won tickets. I stepped up to spin the wheel at Cobb Energy Center’s anniversary party and it stopped on free show tickets. I was blown away. I felt like a kid in the chocolate factory, I got the golden ticket. It gets better. I walked into the auditorium and received a text that I won the raffle I just entered. 2 big wins in a row!! I was on a date with me!
