Drive up service only

Bank drive up window from bicycle
Blogging in real time. Waited about 25 minutes with only three cars in front of me.

Grateful to have a check too large for mobile deposit. Grateful the bank offers drive up service only. Grateful for time and ability to bike 12 miles round trip to deposit a check. Grateful for staying peaceful during the long wait for a simple transaction.

The new you is better

Our high-mountain HQ in lower middle. To start before sunrise already at 6,600′ is superior to starting at 3,200′, minimum hour drive, and minimum multi-hours hike to get here.

Over-managing and micromanaging are polar opposites. Over-managing is about being intentional where you used to be unintentional.

Night notes to self

Mid Life Celebration book
New York City subway wall.

Middle of night awoke with this self-conversation…

2 questions…

1. Does this sound unreasonable?

2. What are you prepared to do to achieve it?

Unpacked…(remember, it was 2am)…

1. Wouldn’t it be great to live with mental vibrancy, physical vibrancy, spiritual vibrancy, work vibrancy, and home life vibrancy?

2. Now, what’s your answer?

Assuming your answer is yes, what are you prepared to do to achieve it?

Because, you do believe you deserve it, and, that it would be wonderful to live that way. Then the only question really, is what are you willing to do next? And for how long?

Keep it to yourself

boy on a pogo stick
Two choices: (1) Jump for joy after you do it. (2) Jump for joy by announcing you’re going to do it. Photo: Me, 10 years old, at cousin’s house.

There’s a sense of accomplishment simply from announcing you are going to do something, like write a book. Announcing is a procrastinator’s miracle drug. Nothing has been accomplished but it feels like a big step has been made. Keep it to yourself and do the work first, then announce your results.

Habit honing

Mickey Mouse posing with three adults
Circa 2005+-. Is enthusiasm a habit?

Constantly hone your habits, intentionally adding habits that serve you and intentionally eliminating habits that wear you down.
